Recommended Posts

What are the more affordable wedding flowers in Mexico? I read in a thread peonies are expensive there...

I was wondering the same thing. I really like alstroemerias (Peruvian lilies) because they are delicate and have a lot of color to them. I know they have Mexican Lilies there, but I'm not too big on them...

I was recently married in riveria maya.  I decided to go with a florist not associated with the resort- marvin from maya floral.  His prices were amazing and I suggest you check him out. 

 

Azul beach (where I was married) is associated with Lomas travel.  Lomas wanted to charge $350 for my bouquet. $225 for the bridesmaids and $250 for centerpieces.  They said the reason they were so expensive was bc I wanted orchids and hydrangeas and they are imported flowers.

 

Maya floral charged- $170 for my bouquet, $65 bridesmaids, $75 or $85 for centerpieces (can't remember)


I was told the cheapest flowers in mexico are roses, lilies, and gerber daisies

I did not pay an outside vendor fee.  Maya Floral was able to deliver the flowers right to the lobby.  I don't think Azul was very happy about it but they permitted it.  when the flowers were delivered my husband and groomsmen picked them up in the lobby and took them to the wedding offices. Everything was already assembled.  I didn't choose anything thing crazy bc Azul would charge an arm and a leg if they had to do any assembly.  All they had to do was place them on the tables.

 

So happy with the results and I saved soooo much.  I thought about fake flowers but then I would have to bring them down with me...and really? what would I do with it after?  it would just sit around collecting dust bc I would feel bad throwing it out.

Thanks @@talicea7812 - I've been contemplating getting an outside vendor for the bouquets and didn't know where to start looking.

I was quoted $50/orchid, so I am going with real touch (which is also pricey for orchids!).

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
