red orchids in Riviera Maya? other red flowers/

Recommended Posts

Anyone know if you can find red orchids in the Riviera Maya area? My WC said they only come in white or pink, but there are a zillion varieties of orchids, many of the red, so I wonder if I can help her find red ones for me...

 

If not, does anyone have other red flower suggestions?

 

Thanks!

Orchids are REALLY expensive in the Riviera Maya area. Perhaps she was trying to spare you the costhuh.gif

I checked with the WC flower expert in our office and she said she is not sure if she has ever seen red orchids before in the florists in the Riviera Maya. We called our best florist and they do not even offer them for special order. Her best suggestion for an alternative is a red alstroemeria (sp?) but she mentioned those are not as dark red as the red orchid.

By the way, I saw that you are doing your wedding at Al Cielo. That is a beautiful location and I think you made a great choice. Take care and good luck.

I'm using red flowers as well, and to keep costs down I went with roses. Red anemones and sunflowers are beautiful, but generally expensive. My florist (in Jamaica) said they could get them, but we would've needed to order 40 dozen - which was WAY more than we needed. Good luck with your quest for red flowers though! Have you considered using silk if you want an expensive flower?

Vaughan Long, Thank you for checking that for me! I'm am excited about Al Cielo, but the WC there is just one person with a set list of options and although she is open to suggestions, I am having to do some research. I appreciate your help!

I totally understand- I wanted red tulips and then found out tulips are super expensive in the RM.. I ended up with an almost red calla lilly-(kinda between hot pink and red) and then am using roses....Good Luck!

I decided to go with silk flowers, that way I can guarantee the bouquet I want and all at a reasonable price. And I was thinking of putting my bouquet in a vase when I get home too. The lady I'm going with makes bouquets that photo so real! I'm doing white calla with the tips soaked in red, red and pink roses and berries:

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
