Bouquet costs?

Recommended Posts

I just got an estimate for the cost of my bouquet & it's a lot more than I was expecting, so I just wanted to see what you guys thought was normal.

 

I requested a quote for something similar this:Click the image to open in full size..

 

I'm not sure if I uploaded the image correctly, but it basically consists of orchids & roses. The quote was for $385.

 

Is that cost estimate similar to what you all have received?

 

I'm having a really hard time justifying that expense for something that I'm going to hold for an hour or so. :)

 

Thanks!

Wow that seems really expensive. Where was the quote from? There are some threads with different flower shops and avg. prices. The bouquet looks beautiful but I think thats alot of money

Orchids are VERY expensive in Mexico because they have to import them in. I'm paying $165.00 for roses and C. Orchids, but thats only one stem of orchids (about 12 flowers) and a few roses tucked in to add some contrast.

 

That flower arrangement looks pretty big (at least in the picture) so I would say it might still be a little high. Shop around a little more.

yikes! those are pretty but I personally would never pay $400 for one bouquet! Honestly, you will not care about it that much that day. Where is that quote from?

Yeah, I feel the same way about the cost. It seems like a waste of $$ to spend so much.

 

I got the quote from the wedding coordinator @ Las Ventanas & I'm not sure which florist she is using. I'll ask her. I guess I'm not super surprised about being ripped off just b/c it's Las Ventanas, but I have to draw the line somewhere! I feel better about spending that extra money on food, etc. Flowers are something else entirely.

 

The link to the other thread was helpful... at least to get a general idea of what other people were paying.

 

Maybe I should ask the wedding coordinator to get a quote from a different florist.

 

Someone mentioned on the older thread mentioned that palmela floreria was reasonable. I googled that, but nothing came up. Does anybody have their contact information? Tammy, in that thread, you also mentioned that you send someone the contact information for another cheap flower vendor. Was that palmela floreria or someone else?

 

Thanks again for all of your help!!

WOW that's sooooooo expensive.. I'm paying 50-70 for my bouquet.. do you think they accept outside vendors? if they do, contact them yourself, rather than having the hotel's coordinator do it.. In my personal experience you'll always get ripped off by them..

I'm not really sure if they accept outside vendors. I guess even if they don't like it, they can't stop me from going to pick up a bouquet from somewhere else & bringing it into the resort. :)

 

I searched the forum & I think I found a phone number for Pamela Floreria that Tammy posted last year. I'll have one of my Spanish speaking friends call & talk to them before I ask Las Ventanas what their policy is.

 

Thanks again!
