Shocking price of bouquet!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I recently emailed my WC at the moon palace to get a quote for my bouquet.

 

I wanted cymbidium orchids, peonies, fushia lillies and calla lillies. The quote I was given was $650!!!!! I can't believe it!!! :0 Does anyone else think that is way over priced?

 

Has anyone else had a similar bouquet to the one I would like? How much did you pay if you don't mind me asking.

 

I am still in shock!!

 

Many thanks,

 

Angela

That does seem over priced. But a few things to keep in mind: are those flowers easily available that time of year? Do they have to fly them in from a diffrent country, what size bouquet are you looking for, etc...

Outrageous - did she somehow misunderstand and give you a quote for 3-6 bouquets? I got married in Cabo (but still Mexico) and my peony and roses bouquet was almost a third of that price. Peonies are expensive in Cabo because they (like most flowers in Cabo) have to be imported, but since you are getting married in May, peonies are in season and there is not reason you can't have them. I would start shopping around.

I agree with Stacey...that price does seem high but those flowers are not local to Mexico and they are hard to get at that time of year. Realistically, that price is probably not too far off. AND they aren't only going to order 5 or 6 of each to make your bouquet...they would probably have to order them in bulk which adds to your bottom line.

I would do some research about what is easy to get in Mexico and during that time of year if you want real flowers for a cheaper price.

Sadly that sounds about right down there... I got quoted $300 for my cymbidium & tulips bridesmaids bouquets and stopped there and went straight to real touch flowers.

 

My bouquet is phalaenopsis orchids, cymbidium orchids, peonies & cala lillies, real touch for $100 and I'll keep it forever.

 

My bridesmaids bouqets also went from $300 to $50 each... oh and my 3 orchid stems in 3 vases went from $400 a table... yes seriously, to $25 for the 3 per table.

 

I highly recommend looking into real touch, they're gorgeous!

That is a little overpriced. This is why I'm doing real touch bouquets because I'm wanting cymbidium orchids, calla lilies, and plumerias. You may want to look into them to cut the costs.

    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
    • @JessicaCV - How was your wedding experience? We're getting married there in November - Would love to pick your brain about your experience and the planning process! - Kian
    • They forgot the wedding cake topper   Okay, so no big deal - just a once in a lifetime moment. The upsetting part is the wedding coordinator, Dionne, did not seem at all concerned about the mistake. The only reason we got an apology was because we happened to run into her the night before we left. Our wedding was on Saturday we left Wednesday morning. We were told we could escalate our concern to Riu corporate, the wedding coordinator doesn’t have a supervisor on site. Riu corporate said they did their best and apologized. Brides, go to Jamaica, get married, but do yourself a favor and do not go to a Riu resort, especially not Riu Negril. I am certain there are other resorts that would have been in touch immediately and tried to make up for their mistake. Not Riu.
