Flowers in Playa Del Carmen?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I'm getting married at The Royal Playa Del Carmen on July 23, 2011 and I was wondering if there were any places to buy flowers outside of the resort.  I don't want to spend $118 on a bouquet of tulips for each of my 3 bridesmaids so I'm looking for other (more cost effective) options.

 

Can anyone help me?????

If you are looking for a flower shop there are a couple in the town, but I don't think you'll be able to find tulips there.  You'll find orchids, calla lilies, lilies, roses...tropical flowers. 

 

In my experience as a wedding planner in the area $118 for a bouquet of tulips is maybe slightly on the high end, but within range actually.  Two years ago I had a bride request different flowers for each of the 6 bouquet she required, and one being tulips.  The price was $110.  Just to give you some reference....

 

Also, I'm not sure what florist/decorator the Royal uses, so hopefully you can see some examples beforehand.

 

If you do end up finding an outside vendor, just be cautious of the rules at the Royal. 

 

Hope you can find something that will be perfect :)

 

Congratulations & Enjoy it!! :)

I just got back from the riviera Maya and used euforia for floral and decor for our wedding. Mayalen was amazing! You have to remember that you get what you pay for. They will do a great job. It was beyond my expectations.

I'm looking into Euforia today - I've gotten quotes from others and my last stop was Euforia.  How were there prices?  Did you rent anything from them?  Lounge furniture? Dance floor? Lighting?  etc....I'm looking for quote a few things and I want to get it all at the same place.

 

Thanks!

I've been getting prices back for a place in town called Flores Riviera Maya. They only charge $35 per bridesmaid bouquet and $75 for the bride. Has anyone used them before or know anything about them? Their website is www.floresrivieramaya.com. They sent me a ton of pictures, most of them are lillies and stuff, but that's what I want. I think I'm just going to order all of them as bridesmaids bouquets so I can get the cheaper price. They also said they'll deliver to outside our resort (they can't actually come onto the property or else they'll be an "outside vendor").

Hey kurlyks,

 

that sounds too cheap to me! Remember you get what you pay for..... I got a quote from marvin@mayadisenofloral.com.mx for this.

$130.00 for a bridal bouquet and $55.00 for a bridesmaids size, corsages for mothers cost $20.00 and boutonnieres $15.00

Let me know who else you get quote from, email me and i can forward anything i get on to you.

I thought about that too, but it seems like too good a deal to pass up. I don't see the point in spending hundreds of dollars for bouquets that are used for a quick ceremony, pictures, and then put down for the rest of the night. I'm guessing my bridesmaids are not going to be carrying them around all night. They don't have to be perfect to me, just simple and pretty will work. Obviously I'll be in trouble if they end up being awful, but I'm gonna go check them out a few days ahead of time just in case.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
