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.

    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
    • It's really tough when you put your heart and soul into planning your destination wedding and people aren't supportive for whatever reason. I think maybe letting people know how much it will cost for 2 weeks may be an issue -- a lot of people can't take that much time off and I"m guessing because it's such an extended period of time, the price may seem high to her. A good way of presenting a destination wedding celebration is to give rates based on 4 days, 3 nights -- which is typically what resorts will require for a group booking. This way, people will view it more of an extended weekend celebration and the time off as well as the costs becomes much more feasible to people. More likely, you'll have guests who will opt to stay longer and at that point you just let them know how much the extra cost will be. I suggest you talk to your best friend straight up about this and let her know how important it is for her to be there and find out what is holding her back. Communication is key!!
