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 know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
