Punta Cana Brides - Flowers

Recommended Posts

I wanted to talk to some of the brides who have already been married in Punta Cana - or really anyone that might have this information.

 

What have you seen as your choices for flowers in Punta Cana?

I just wanted to have some sort of idea what I would be able to work with.

 

Or do you suggest speaking to the WC about your options?  I think she said I would pick when I get there...

Hi!! I'm getting marriend in the same hotel as you!! 2 weeks later (november 26th) The original date i wanted was november 11th (like yours) but it was taken! lol.

What restaurant are you having your reception in?? Are you using the hotel's photographer (arrecife studios)?

I haven't decided yet what I'm doing about the flowers...

The resorts contract to local vendors for the flowers and you can pretty much get whatever you want. Bring pictures of what you like and they can replicate it. Now, most resorts offer a "standard" bouquet that is included in your wedding package and the flowers are normally rather basic like roses or carnations. You will be charged an upgrade for more "exotic" flowers. But I've seen brides with different colours of roses, calla lillies, orchids, oriental lillies, etc. However, there are probably some flowers that would be impossible for them to get...I'd suggest staying away from penoies, tulips, etc. as these are northern flowers and I'd be entirely shocked if they had them. Your resort WC should be able to send you a document with sample pictures of bouquets if you ask her! Good luck!

I think they only do 2 weddings a day - you should have seen what I did to get married on that day lol.

Pretty much we have to meet with the judge at 1:00 and then the wedding coordinator will be performing the "symbolic ceremony" at 5:00 so no one will be any the wiser!

 

We are having our dinner at Il Capriccio - I paid for the private reception.

I think we are just going to use the hotel's photographer - I'm a little disappointed that our package only comes with 10 pictures from the ceremony only but I figure our friends/family will make up for the rest :o)

Is there a national flower for punta Cana or Dominican republic? I've been trying for awhile to figure out what's "common" in punta Cana for flowers
