      I was told that no flowers can come into Mexico from the US (this is for Cabo, though), so any florist in the States that would be coming down to do an event, would have to order flowers from Holland, etc just like a florist in Mexico would.

      Which would explain why they're so freaking expensive in Mexico!

        No, they'll confiscate them at check in. They won't let any plants in or out of the country.

          Hi there. You can order flowers directly from the growers in Ecuador and Columbia. That is where most of the flowers used in America (outside of those grown in Central California) come from. If you do a google search, you can find the farms that ship direct. The key is to be there to accept the International Fedex shipment and immediately treat the flowers. Good luck!

          Flying them in from the states usually ends up yucky because they sit at customs. You can fly them into Mexico but not out of Mexico into the states. If you have any questions, send me a PM (I am a wedding florist and may be able to answer specifics).

            I can tell you that my freeze dried rose petals were confiscated by Mexican customs...they said no real flowers allowed into Mexico from the US. I was able to bring in my silk/latex orchids. :0)

                Your freeze dried petals were confiscated? Wow, guess that solves my decision of freeze dried vs. silk! Thanks for the post, I never would've thought of that!
