DO NOT USE: Julieta Wedding Florist

Recommended Posts

This woman is a real crook.  Here is my nightmare story with her:

 

I hired Julieta wedding florist, for multiple things with my wedding, including airport transfers, tours, and ceremony and reception decor, musicians, and flowers.  Initially, I raved about her amazing prices and great communication skills on this board, everything she quoted me was half price than what the hotel was asking.  Her decorations were half of what Zuniga or DecoCancun wanted.  Unfortunately, I learned the hard way that you get what you paid for.  Had I been a little more uptight about things, she would have ruined my wedding!  She failed on EVERY front.

 

TRANSFERS

her price was $12 round trip, which I found fantastic.  You get what you pay for however.  They only showed up half the time, and people had to pay $$$ for taxis after hours of waiting.  For some people, they did show up, but then made them wait in the van 2hrs for more arrivals.  For me, bride&groom, they arrived on time in a scraggly old van, then my then-fiance had to get out and push the van when the motor stopped, that didn't work and we had to wait for a rescue van.  All to save a few dollars, definitely go with USA transfers who I've used in the past without a glitch, or someone else well known. 

 

GAZEBO DECOR:

I had paid her to decorate the gazebo, FAIL. I was promised tall calla lilies surrounding each column, and romantic drapes on the gazebo. Her sorry job looked like crap, it would have looked better with nothing at all.

What she promised me: gazebo decorWhat I got for $350:

MUSICIANS

Paid for a 12 piece mariachi. FAIL.  Only 8 showed up and played for 2hrs instead of the contracted 3hrs.

DANCEFLOOR

 

What she promised:

What I got for $420: (unfinished wood that left splinters in those that went barefoot, unfinished corners, and an odd thin shape where 3 guests fell off, 1 badly injured her ankle after falling off.)  Oh, and I also got her apologies: "Sorry, I forgot to mention what kind of dancefloor, I only said white. Sorry, I'll give you $100 back."  That was her answer.  As a wedding coordinator/decor company, you expect her to figure out this is wrong BEFORE your event.

CENTERPIECES

What she promised (this pic still available on her website)

What I got for $50 x 11 tables:  This is the best one.  Most were just 4 calla lilies in a vase and I don't even have pictures!

I'm one of those brides that received your email.  I'm still not sure if I should just hope for the best with my centerpieces or switch now.  It's very disheartening to see how unlike anything you sent her turned out.

Oh no, such a horrible thing to happen to you on your wedding day.  Sounds like you forked out a lot of money for beautiful decor and got crap in return.  I am so sorry!!  I hope you and your fiance still managed to have a fabulous wedding, decor aside!

Thank you so much for posting!! I have been communicating with her and still thinking about booking with her, but after your post I will be looking elsewhere for a florist!

I absolutely agree w/ this post.  I had a terrible experience as well for my wedding earlier this month and will be posting my in depth review later this week.  In the meantime, for the rest of the BDW brides - PLEASE LOOK ELSEWHERE!!!!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
