Has Anyone Heard of These Florists?

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

 

 

I am getting hitched at the Iberostar Del Mar and I'm not very happy with there florist (not very many options)... So we have decided to go with an outside vendor. I have read some other posts and a couple people recommended either Flores Julieta or Venessa Jaimes. I am in contact with them but wanted to know if anyone has used or has comments on Maya Diseno Floral at .::: Maya Diseño Floral Profesional .::: Maya Diseño Floral Profesional :::. Flores y Plantas Exóticas or Euforia Arte Euforia Has anyone used them or any/all suggestions are much appreciated!

 

Thanks,

Danielle

Maya Diseno Floral is Marvin, my florist. My flowers were the most beautiful flowers our hotel had ever seen. We got to keep all of the flowers after the wedding so our WC put most of them in our honeymoon suite and some were given to the hotel. Marvin's prices are good too. Let me know if you need more info.

I used Euforia for my wedding May 1, 2010 and I thought they did an amazing job - I sent them specific pictures to copy and not only did they do that, they helped me bring the prices down when I told them EXACTLY how much I had to spend. Lucrecia is the name of the designer we worked with at Euforia and she was awesome!!

I am also using Marvin from Maya Deseneo Floral, he has been great to work with and you cannot beat him for the price. I have heard so many great things about him from past brides.

I've just returned from my daughter's wedding at the Fairmont Mayakoba, and we used Vanessa Jaimes. We could not have been happier. Vanessa listened to what we were looking for, adapted her designs to fit within our budget, and delivered impeccably.

 

I work with a friend who does wedding flowers locally, so it was difficult for me to turn over the reigns. On a destination wedding, it's what you have to do because you're working remotely. This has been a learning experience for me, and everything turned out beautifully. Here's my advice to anyone looking for a florist is a destination location:

 

1) Flowers are not an important feature to all brides, but if it is to you, hire a florist with the best reputation. Do your research, and hire the one that you think is the most reliable and most likely to deliver the look you want;

 

2) Describe a look and the colors you want for your floral pieces. We said "low and lush," "whites, ivories and greens," and "earthy, and natural." If you want tropical colors and "edgy sculptural," say that. Whatever works for you, describe it as best you can and share a limited number of pictures so it does not confuse your florist;

 

3) Don't get too specific as to flower types. Flowers that are readily available at home may be very expensive at your destination. At the same time, flowers that are indulgent at home may not be at your wedding locale.

 

4) Recognize that flowers are seasonal. As an example, tulips in the fall are possible, but they may be pricey. Also, accept that most destination weddings are in locations that are remote from most floral distribution centers, so listen to your florist to suggest flower types that she can get at a reasonable price;

 

3) Trust your florist. They know what works in the locale of your wedding. Tall arrangements may blow over if your reception is outdoors and open to ocean breezes, and standard votives, that are lovely in many stateside locales, may not stay lit when you are in a tropical environment.; and

 

4) As a destination bride, you are in a beautiful setting. You don't have to do too much, and flowers are by nature, beautiful. Don't sweat it.

 

If you want to see what worked awesome for us, look at the second picture on Vanessa's slide show. This was our inspiration and why we hired her. The Baby's Breath baskets gave us texture and definition for the ceremony without taking away from the natural environment. If this is not your look, you can see that she's not limited here.

Hey camille, I also got no response from them: I understand they do not offer pics until you are in contracts with a 50% deposit.

so I am working flowers and all the rest for a very small intimate ceremony with Julieta

FUN AND UNIQUE EVENTS JULIETA your WEDDING FLORIST AND COORDINATOR

hope this helps, as she carries a lot of promotions and flexible options for trading this and that. ask because she is saying yes whenever changes can be made, and recycling, flowers for the dinner area, etc.

Thank you so much for the reference and advice. I just checked out Vanessa's website and one of pictures that have printed out for ceremony inspiration is actually on her site. Her work looks great and very current...the baby's breath is perfect for us too b/c our ceremony site is very natural.
Did you find that her prices were reasonable? I definitely plan to contact her.
