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!
