“I’ve been looking through wedding magazines for the perfect bouquet and table decorations and think I’ve found what I want. Where do I go from here?”
I think it’s great that you are involved in the creative design process of your wedding. Your input and special touches will make your wedding even more perfect and memorable for you and your guests.
First thing you need is to find a florist. In downtown Zihuatanejo, there are many wonderful shops within walking distance of each other, which makes it easy to compare prices and actually see the flowers and different types of arrangements. Remember, even though Zihuatanejo has grown in recent years, along with its services and products sector, it is still considered to be a small town. Therefore, you might find some of the common flowers from Canada and the United States are considered to be luxury flowers here and are very costly. But not to worry, there are plenty of beautiful choices to fit any budget, from the exotic to traditional.
Whether you or your wedding planner does the flower shopping, the prices can vary from shop to shop as well as time needed to fill orders. Starting prices for bouquets and center pieces, some shops can do same day service for 200-300 pesos per. Others require up to a week in advance for 300-400 pesos per. And there is one I found that only requires a couple of days notice for 400-500 pesos per. Depending on the flower choice and arrangement these prices will vary. While asking around for info I found a few shops where some English is spoken, and those that do also have email so there is potential to place orders before via email. This also adds the possibility of sending photos of what you are looking for in terms of design and arrangement.
