    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.



    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. 



    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:







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

      What I got for $800 for drapes on "ceiling and walls" like above picture + $400 for "romantic pink and purple" lighting: (The following mummy like scraps were on the wall behind us only).

        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.





        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!

          not a surprise ....there are a lot of vendors like that down here....just copy and paste from internet...is not difficult!


          As wew always say....if a price seems to good to be true....there is something behind!

            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!!!!
