    I'm getting married in December in Cabo and the hotel is handling everything for me as a "Package". They have given me choices for the Vendors. The flower package, which includes Bride's bouquet, Groom's boutonniere, flowers for arch or huppa and rose petals, is $1,000. Does that seem about right to you?

    My florist choices are Mazarte Floral, Cabo Floral Studio and De Fiore. Does anyone have any recommendations?

      Yes girl, that sounds about right on for what I am being quoted for my wedding in Jamaica. Here is the price list she quoted me. It is SO HIGH that I am cutting out a lot...like the Moms & Dads flowers, flowers for isle, and my hair flower and BMs hair flowers. We are only going to do the arch, bouquets, and groom only boutonniere (I made starfish for everyone else), cake and the centerpieces. I am also going to get the chair ties from her as well...it seems easier then buying them cheaper and lugging them there. I found a freeze dried petal online store where it's $400 to do the ENTIRE isle and she wanted $880 to just do the sides!

        I would double check but i dont think you can bring freeze dried petals from the US in to Jamaica. I believe other girls have had customs taken them on their way down.

          Glad to hear it's the going rate. Thanks for your input. I see that your wedding date is my deceased father's birthday. He was a great man, so I think that all things are great on that special day. Best wishes to you!!

              I think I am paying about that for Cabo as well. Well a little more but I also requested some centerpieces. The more things you request the more they are willing to negotiate I found.
