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.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
