I am working with Iris at Iris Designs www.irisdesign.com.mex I am a floral design myself in Los Angeles so turning my own wedding flowers over to someone else is scary on a whole different level. And hard since I know what everything cost here wholesale! It is true that they have to import a lot of flowers to Mexico. We do that here too and they're still not as expensive. I was originally going to have my suppliers ship all of my flowers in and I'd do them myself, but none of them will deal with Mexico. Customs are tough and a lot of times flowers don't make it through, arrive way too late or die. The ones that will only ship them there, you are left to clear Customs on your own and if they don't get through you're out of time and out of luck. Plus the taxes on imports are huge. I found Iris through a wedding planner while looking for reccomendations of florists that they use. I met with them both in Puerto Vallarta. Said planner came along to translate since Iris's English is not very good and also to see if there was anything that I'd like to work with her on. I learned a very important lesson. Everyone in Mexico IS NOT flakey. After waiting for months for price quotes on different possibilities and crazy prices and wrong information I decided to bypass the useless middleman and go straight to Iris since I thought we hit it off and she would have wanted my business. Two words: GOOGLE TRANSLATOR! AMAZING! It will translate any language to and from English. I took a chance and wrote her directly and she got back to me within an hour. I sent pictures and specific flower requests. She did not try to over charge me at all. Everything is very realistic based on their flower cost. She loves what she does and her style of work is very much on par with what I do here in Los Angeles. I highly reccomend her and don't feel that you are at the mercy of locals because you don't live in Mexico.

Could you please post some pictures of how your flowers turned out?
This is my biggest worry about a mexico wedding. The place I currently have in mind includes flowers in thier package price, but I have reviewed tons and tons of wedding pictures and while past brides were happy, I am afraid I will be disappointed. Therefore I am interested to see pictures and vendors others have used!!

We had a wedding last month where Iris made the flowers and they were gorgeous! I would also reccomend her, just for the quality of her work, even tho I have never actually spoken to her. You can see the flowers she brought to this wedding in this gallery, she made the bouquet and the decorations on the beach.
