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

@@talicea7812 Congrats! Did they deliver to the resort? Did the resort charge a vendor fee?

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!).

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
