Florist for Cancun?

Recommended Posts

Hi Sophie. I used her last year- here was my review.. hope this helps. Feel free to ask me if you have any questions about her! Good luck.:)

 

Julieta Flores- B. Julieta did my flowers. I had some specific ideas about my bouqets and my bridesmaids and boutineers, and general pictures and suggestions for rest of flowers. I sent a lot of pictures and emails over a year, but due to holidays and other things I did lag a bit on getting the contract signed and sent until the last minute which may have contributed to a few things going a bit off balance. Julieta called several times after I flew in and I set up a time to meet with her about flowers. She explained that most of order had come in but a lot of flowers were wilted looking and she didn't think i would be happy with them. I was dissapointed because the only thing i really cared about was my bridal bouqet- I wanted a duplicate of an exact one I had seen on the knot.com and it was dissapointing that those were the flowers that came in wilted. But she went through and showed me pics of each flower she wanted to use to replace it and although i was really nervous in what i would get the day of my wedding they turned out beautiful!!!! The reason I gave her a B was that the bridesmaids bouqets were not full bouqets (they fell apart later inthe night and i realized they were stems in styrafom made to look full) and the dinner flowers were not at all like I had wanted. My mom and I didn't even think they were delivered but I saw a pic from photographer so i guess they put them somewhere- but you know they are really small and nondescript if no one even saw them. But overall, she delivered everything on time for events and worked with me last minute to get what I wanted and was very nice!

And I should probably re-emphasize (I don't think it comes across in this) that she is great! She really worked with me- she went through a whole list on her laptop, after she realized my flowers had arrived slightly wilted, picture by picture of suggestions and options. And they really turned out amazing!!! Plus I wanted really exotic flowers- lots of orchids and tropical flowers- on of course a minimal budget and she worked with me sooo much to get me something that would fit my budget and my taste:).

I´m getting married in MAY 2011 and I´m using Julieta as my florist . She is also my WC . I´m glad to read this review. She has been really nice and helpful. Her English is great  which helps a lot.  We are still working on the colours and styles but so far everything is running smoothly.

I got married just recently and I would like to add Flores Riviera Maya to this list. I wrote a review about them in the vendor section if you'd like to know more about my experience with them. 

 

And this is their website:

http://www.floresrivieramaya.com/eng/

 

I remember how hard it was to find affordable flowers in Cancun that did not sacrifice quality and service. Hopefully this helps! Happy planning :)

Hi!

 

We have worked alongside http://www.alquimiaevents.com/for a long time at the Paradisus Playa del Carmen and they do a great job. You can contact Perla at perla@@AlquimiaEvents.com for information.

 

Just to clarify, we are not associated with them in any way, but know they do great work.

 

Great planning!

 

All the best,

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
