What’s the one floral question that we hear from almost every single Cabo bride? The #1 question is always, “Can you get __________ in Cabo?” Fill in the blank with the flower of your choice! As floral designers, we love every beautiful, unique flower out there. But it is important to know what flowers you can and can’t get in Cabo so that you can keep your planning realistic and on-target.
The main thing you need to know about flowers in Cabo is that there are no flowers grown commercially on our beautiful, but small (relatively) peninsula. We import all of our flowers from mainland Mexico, where they are flown to us via airplane. (We actually pick them up at the same airport that you will arrive at when you come into town.) They remain refrigerated until we deliver them to your event.
The other thing to remember is that Cabo is a very warm destination for many months out of the year. It’s the main thing that everybody loves about Cabo! But it also can affect your flowers. You need flowers that can tolerate our temperatures. Our floral designers are experts at assessing the date of your event and then making sure the flowers you choose will work with that date.
So, what are your flower options? Your main choices (again, depending on the season) will be as follows: roses, baby roses, cymbidium orchids, dendrobium orchids, phalaenopsis orchids, calla lilies, mini calla lilies, lilies, daisies, Gerber daisies, Birds of Paradise, hydrangeas, ranunculuas, tulips, succulents, baby’s breath, stephanotis, and gardenias. These are the most popular flowers that we offer. You will notice that we have not included a bridal favorite, which is the peony. The truth is we can (sometimes) get the flower in Cabo, so we have to check that flower on a case by case basis. Similar flowers are our tulips and our hydrangea. Both of these are imported from Europe and so are again sometime difficult to get and/or may not work with our weather. We realize how much brides love these flowers, though, and we will always work with you to get the exact flowers that you love and cherish. A note to remember: you can not bring flowers to or from Cabo from the U.S.
The bottom line is we feel proud of the gorgeous and varied flowers that we can offer in our little pueblo surrounded by the sea! Now…just wait until you see what we can do with these gorgeous flowers! You’ll be thrilled!
