Flowers are often one of the first things couples start to plan for when it comes to their wedding day – what will the bride and bridesmaids bouquets look like, what kind of flowers can the ceremony arch have, will there be floral centrepieces at dinner, and more. Every hotel has different florists that they work with who specialize in making stunning arrangements. At the Riu properties in Los Cabos, Mexico, and Jamaica – two of the most popular destinations to get married in – there are especially talented florists that we wanted to tell you more about!
Cabo San Lucas is one of our most popular destinations for weddings, and the three Riu properties – the Riu Santa Fe, Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas, and the newly opened Riu Palace Baja California – in the area are fantastic. They offer multiple ceremony and reception venue options which all have unique looks that are very on-point for current wedding trends. Ceremonies on the beach overlook the famous Arch of Cabo, as do receptions on the resorts many different terraces.
Riu’s preferred florist, and the premiere provider in Cabo, is Baja Flowers. They’re a wonderfully friendly team to work with, and have a wealth of knowledge on flowers and décor! Our team works with them regularly and has a very strong relationship, where we can help our couples come up beautiful and unique arrangements. From stunning bouquets with lush greenery and exotic flora to magnificent ceremony arches and huppas with innovatively designed tropical flowers, Alina and Marco – the founders of Baja Flowers – are going to make your wedding dream come true!
RIU Hotels and Resorts have multiple locations in Jamaica, with 6 properties spreading from Ocho Rios, to Negril, and Montego Bay. For couples who want the ultimate beach destination wedding, a great party, and delicious food, this is the spot to go! The group of hotels in Montego Bay – the Riu Montego Bay, and adults only Riu Reggae and Riu Palace Tropical Bay – feature Riu’s signature bright colours, which match the vibrant atmosphere of the properties. In Negril, the Riu Negril and Riu Palace Tropical Bay are sleek and elegant, thanks to recent renovations. And the Riu Ocho Rios will be undergoing renovations this summer, so we can’t wait to see what it looks like as a new and improved favourite resort!
For weddings in Jamaica, we get to work with a fantastic company, Tai Flora. Everyone in Jamaica loves them, as they are able to come up with incredible designs and provide exceptional products. Not only do they create stunning flower arrangements for the wedding party – from bouquets and boutonnieres, to corsages, hair flowers, and more – but they also provide décor for both the ceremony and reception. The sky is the limit with what they can do, whether it be a ceremony arch, upgraded seating, a reception tent, spectacular lighting options, centrepieces at dinner, dance floors that light up or have monogrammed designs, and so much more. You’ll love seeing the weddings they have designed, so make sure you follow their socials!
