Choosing Flowers for your Riviera Maya Wedding

For some brides, choosing flower arrangements and the right bouquet is just as important as picking a dress. With thousands of types of flowers, and so many combinations of colors and arrangements to chose from, something as fun as picking flowers for your wedding can turn into an overwhelming project!
Luckily for brides planning a wedding in Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya, we are home to some of the most gorgeous flowers around! Having such wonderful tropical flowers native to our area makes it more affordable and accessible for brides and always leads to stunning weddings. Depending on the season and availability, we can almost always get the type of flower requested, however there are some exceptions.

Flowers can be an excellent inexpensive way to add an extra layer to any wedding, pick whichever suits your personalities and theme and you won’t be disappointed!
