Hi Ladies!

 

My aunt is a florist and event planner (in south america) and will be attending the wedding. If we can get a hold of fresh flowers, she would like to make my bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets and boutonnieres. Does anyone know of any places that we can buy some once we are in Cancun and/or whether the Moon Palace will let you bring in flowers and do this?

Hi @anvb82

 

Congrats!!

 

They do have flowers at Wal-Mart, I know that may not be what you are looking for though....I didn't look at them really, but I did see roses

 

You may want to contact my florist and see if she will sell you some loose flowers that you could go pick up from her shop.

I know that most flowers are flown in from mexico city, there isn't a "market" where she can go select her flowers, as I had some specific flower requests, and she wasn't sure how some of the flowers would look until they arrived since she doesn't get to hand pick them herself.

 

Her name is Vanessa Jaimes and she is based in cancun.

 

Here is a link to my sneak peek pics, so you can see the quality of flowers she can get

As with most in Mexico, she may take a few days to respond, but she is amazing!

 

I would wait until you are onsite with your wedding coordinator, and let them know that your aunt is making your bouquets for you. I am sure you will be fine and will not have to pay the fee, especially since she is staying at the resort.  If you say anything to your pre-planner, they are mostly just rule followers and will probably tell you that you need to pay the $800 outside vendor fee.

 

Good Luck!

Thank you @Linds1204 :o) And congrats on the wedding! The pictures are absolutely beautiful.

 

This is super helpful! I will definitely get in touch with your florist. That is great advice about waiting until I'm there to talk to them about the flowers. The $800 vendor fee is very steep! FIngers crossed!
