Flower question for Bahama Brides
Posted 10 January 2009 - 12:37 AM
I was told that all of the florists in the Bahamas import all of their flowers, which seems crazy to me.. There are such beautiful flowers there, but I was told none of them work well in bouquets..
Has anyone gotten their flowers done or ordered their flowers yet for a wedding in the Bahamas - is this really the case
Now that I see how expensive flowers are, I finally understand why so many girls here are getting silk flowers..

I will let you know the cost in a few weeks.

I do see a lot of bouganvilla accents in bouquets and also as boutonnieres. In fact on more than one occasion I have clipped a few and put a pin through it for groomsmen when the order came up short and nobody was the wiser. Hibiscus wilt almost immediately and plumbago (they look similar to blue hydrangias) is extremely sticky...I mean you brush up against it and it will stick to you like glue. Other flowers aren't very full and you would have to have something to flesh it out. You may be able to get a deal on a bougenvillia and baby's breath bouquet but that is about all I have seen that used native flowers.
However if you want to make your own boutenierres, bring some florist tape and pins and you can probably do those easily.
hope that helps.
As for the cost. The florists can't truck in flowers, they have to be flown in on airplanes and stay refrigerated which certainly adds to costs.
