I plan on getting mine at DAC its a local produce market. And then across the street from DAC there is a local florist that you can buy long stem cut flowers from called Floeria IRIS or something. I tried to attach a link from everythingplayadelcarmen.com but it didn't work.

 

I had done some research early in my planning and found out about DAC. Anytime you can support the locals vs big corps hand down Im on board!

 

We are not doing an altar either. We are placing flowers in a circle in which we will stand in for the service.

I might check out Walmarts selection for some things, but really look forward to being surprised the morning of to see what the freshest flowers are at the market and buying from them anyway.

 

Im planning on doing my own candelabra centerpieces with the flowers in the center in a piece of round floral foam attached to the center candle stick. Some maybe flowers around the base of the candelabra in a wreath piece of floral foam.

 

I want to have some local fresh monster leaves under my plate chargers or some other palm green ( hoping for monster leaves)

 

I actually look forward to buying and arranging beautiful vibrant flowers the morning of my wedding, Having my husband and kids take part of it if they want. Drinking coffee just kickin it.

 

We rented a pretty big condo btw so we have taken all things into consideration for prepping the flowers, big kitchen table, large fridge, sink, etc.

 

If staying at a hotel I wouldn't do it myself, and if staying somewhere that I had to drive to pick up the flowers and take back and feel pressured I wouldn't do it.

 

Good luck ladies!!

I decided yesterday I'm going to do my own flowers! It's not even the cost - it's that the flowers in season aren't my favourite and I just feel like for the $300+ I'd spend ordering bouquets, I can probably find what I want and do it myself. I'll be there one week before so an going on the hunt when I get there, will bring all the supplies I need. Hope this works!

Nadia, when are you getting married? We are in November.

@@chelseapaige37 we are getting married in March so let me know what you end up finding! I can't decide what to do! I feel like ordering real touch flowers may be less stressful and I can keep them- but at the same time I love real flowers. Part depends on if my resort would charge a huge fee if I found my own flowers....awaiting an email from the WC now.

I'm getting married north of PV and have found a florist that I really like in the town we're going to. But just from wandering around PV in the past there are a lot of florists and grocery stores that you can get beautiful flowers at. OR there are also people selling them in the intersections so you just need to get in a taxi and take a cruise around!!

When I was in seattle in may, the market had beautiful bouquets with nice flowers (peonies etc.) and there were all under $15. Obviously every place is different , but since I'm only selective about color, I can't imagine not finding someone - and maybe someone at a market or flower shop will just help assemble them?! Maybe I'm dreaming :)

Ok so I actually heard back from the dazzling details - they are getting me the flowers I want and it's pretty reasonable. So I'm going with them!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
