I have been to Playa del Carmen a couple times, but I do not recall going near a market to buy flowers. I am interested in just picking up my own flowers. I'm not picky, so just whatever is pretty & colorful. Do you think I can find this? It needs to be in or near downtown Playa, I don't think we will venture much further.

 

Dumb question, but is Walmart there similar to here? Do they have flowers?

My MOH used to live in the States and she says they have great flowers there. That was her suggestion was to see if there is a Walmart there and we can make our own. I guess you could figure it out when you get there and if they don't, you could order your flowers from the hotel I'm sure. I would check to see how much notice they need. From what I understand if you want tulips, calla lillies or orchids they need to know a couple weeks before hand.

 

What resort are you getting married at?

I completely agree with wanting to do my own flowers. I'm not looking for anything too fancy either. I haven't been to the Walmart in PDC but I have in Puerto Vallarta and it was very much the same. I would think that they probably have street side markets with fresh flowers. I'll be anxious to see if you get anymore information regarding this topic b/c I would love to know too!

Hi Penny,

 

Where will you be staying in Playa del Carmen? I know of two florists that are within walking distance from the Fifth Avenue and I will post their information after I locate their business cards in my folder.

I am staying at Sandos Caracol. It isn't by 5th Avenue, but the hotel does run a free shuttle every hour, so it wouldn't be bad at all going into town. I am not sure if the Walmart is near 5th Ave or not. Anyone know? The florist info would be great! Thanks for all the help!!! I'm really not being picky, on flowers, so it doesn't really stress me to wait, but I kind of want to budget for something. :)

I would like to know the florists also. I am at the Barcelo palace which I think is about 15 minutes south of Playa. If they are a good price I would like check them out. Thanks!

We are having our wedding at Sandos Playacar. I am hoping that the resort is okay with allowing outside flowers to come in.

Hey brides! Found the business cards finally!

 

La Floreria

LA FLORE Floreria en Playa del Carmen Quintana Roo Mexico. Arreglos, Bouquets, Boutoniers, Brazaletes, Centros de Mesa, Ramos, Arcos en la Playa

Street address and phone numbers are listed on their web site. They have a pretty decent display of floral arrangements in the store. The guy I talked to does not speak much English. Best thing is to bring pictures and show them what you are looking for.

 

Floreria Sac-Nah

sacnah@hotmail.com

30th Ave and 16th St. Open 9am - 6pm, Mon - Sat

I would suggest checking this place out first. They have buckets of flowers in the store you can pick from. They also have pictures of floral arrangements or bridal bouquets they make. The ladies I talked to can speak English and I didn't have trouble communicating with them.

 

Both locations are very close to each other and they are within walking distance from Fifth Avenue and Av. Constituyentes (these two are major streets on the map). You will see La Floreria on your right first (across from the superstore Mega) and Floreria Sac-Nah is further down on 30th Avenue going across.

 

Hope this helps.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
