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.

    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
    • Two of my friends are going to get married next month. Out of them one is suffering from serious teeth issue. He is having bleeding gums along with jaw pain and swelling, particularly around the gums or around the jaw. Because of the teeth issue, he is not able to make the arrangements for the marriage. Is it safe to carry out tooth extraction during this period of time? How painful is dental implants during and after the procedure? Will he be able to eat food after tooth extraction? Please share your views and suggestions. Thank you!
