    Beautiful florist!

    Julia at Cherry Blossom was beyond amazing. She was quick to respond, very accommodating, and extremely sweet. Our wedding florals were beautiful and perfectly tropical and elegant for our destination wedding.

    My dream bouquet.

    As a nature and flower lover I wanted to have a flower decoration at my wedding that goes with my husband and my personality. Sandra was amazing, they did exactly what I asked for and she was so professional the whole process. If you are having a destination wedding don't hesitate and contact them we did all by email and worked perfectly. The delivery was great and I was so please with everything.

    Amazing Experience

    We had an amazing experience working with Cherry Blossom MX. They were very responsive throughout the entire process, very flexible and were able to accommodate every change we had to make through the process, and our ceremony looked beautiful and magical with their flowers and décor!! It was everything we could have dreamed of and more thanks to them. We loved working with and meeting Sandra, who was so sweet and kind! Her and their entire team did an amazing job! We are so happy we trusted them

    Exactly what we wanted!

    While the venue itself was beautiful, we wanted to keep our florals to a minimum yet make a statement and Cherry Blossom did just that! They were so flexible with all of my mind changes and ideas during the planning period. On the day of, I couldn't wait to see the bouquets with King Protea and I feel like that moment deserved it's on "first look" because they were amazing! I received so many compliments on all of the florals for the reception as well. We went with mostly greenery for the tables and it was absolutely perfect! They listened to every request and exceeded our expectations! Thank you!

    Perfect Products!!!

    I am from Canada and did not know what to expect from this company. They came recommended and I tell you, I would recommend them as well. Every product we ordered was exactly like or better than the photos I provided to them to design. They showered up on time and in budget! I was very impressed and would definitely use them again. Thank you Julieta!!!

    An absolute dream come true

    An absolute dream come true

    I was first attracted to Cherry Blossom one month after my engagement when I started to research local florists. I did not love how the resort decor and florals were very cookie cutter, I liked the unique designs I was seeing from them. Better yet, their reviews were amazing. I reached out and received immediate and prompt response from their team. They were SO patient as I asked for things I saw on Pinterest to be quoted and OMG their prices for what you will receive, the Value is incredible. The quality is NOT sacrificed, my photographer said to me "that arch must have cost thousands". Everything was just as the pictures I sent them. The delivery was prompt and bouquets delivered to my room. I highly reccommend Cherry Blossom. Their designs are unique and beautiful, the process of selecting decor/florals was smooth and they respond so quickly and are so professional. The flowers and the arch and everything was gorgeous. THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY DAY SO SPECIAL. - Caroline

    Beautiful florals

    It was so easy and a pleasure to work with Cherry Blossom. I thought choosing flowers for my destination wedding was going to be difficult since I could not physically see the flowers. However, they made the process very simple as I was able to send them all my pictures and they recreated everything I wanted, including the small details I asked for. They provided quotes very quickly and were flexible in changing flowers to adjust to my budget. They were also readily available and provided different payment options. Also, Julieta met with us to go over my whole vision in one of the visits to Mexico which was really helpful in giving me the confidence that they understood what I wanted. I was so happy we were able to work with Cherry Blossom and that I had beautiful floral arrangements!

    Tear Dropping Experience!

    Cherry Blossom and team are an amazing team to work with!!! They are everything a bride is looking for! They are extremely patient, super organized and pay attention to detail! I got married in Riviera Maya at Villa la Joya and the venue itself is to die for, but Cherry Bloosom and team made magic come to life with Beautiful Flowers! Planning a destination wedding is not easy, but Cherry Bloosom made it an easy and unforgettable experience! I will never forget when Sandra handed me my flower bouquet...My eyes watered and I felt every happy emotion you could possibly think of when she showed it to me! Today I look back at all the beautiful details and how beautiful they made my wedding look! I am forever Thankful and highly recommend Cherry Bloosom!

    Simply the best!

    I started working with Sandra early during my planning and although I had a general idea of what I wanted we worked with different images to eliminate and create our general idea for our big day. Sandra had so much patience and she was truly so helpful every step of the way. She listen and delivered everything I asked for and more. She has a unique art and our wedding floral was beyond expectations.
    Sandra, thank you for listening to me and grasping my ideas, thank you for your honest feedback, for all your help and for making my wedding day that much beautiful with your art!

    My husband and I were recently married in Tulum this April and introduced to Sandra and Juli through our planner, Lucy Gallagher.

    Awesome florist!

    Sandra was so quick to reply back with all my questions, costs and last minute changes for my wedding. The centrepieces, bouquets, flower girl hair pieces and decor we rented exceeded my expectations. It looked even more beautiful in person than the pictures and everyone at my reception commented on how beautiful the centrepieces were. She also went out of her way to print out my wedding seat chart since I couldn't pack it in my luggage due to the size of the sign. The flowers really put the finishing touch on my wedding and both my husband and I were more than impressed. I would highly recommend!!

    Breathtaking flowers

    My flowers were probably one on the most beautiful aspects of our wedding. Cherry Blossom was amazing to work with, so responsive, flexible, and accommodating. During the planning process, I changed my mind countless times regarding the flowers and I had numerous visions but no great examples to provide the florist (nothing i found in pinterest was quite right). On top of that, I was very budget conscious and i had 8 bridesmaids! Cherry Blossom worked to keep me within budget and took my countless ideas and came up with the most spectacular flowers (I honestly teared up when I saw them). My bridal bouquet was enormous and so much more stunning than anything I'd seen before (very unique). My bridesmaid bouquets were neutral and more simple, but still unique with a boho vibe that complemented mine perfectly. We also got mixed eucalyptus and some cut grapefruit from them for the centerpieces (we used the bridesmaid bouquets and rented vases from Cherry Blossom). The centerpieces exceeded my expectations and again, were within a very tight budget. Seriously, if you are debating between florists, go with Cherry Blossom.

    Unbelievable service! And stunning designs

    Can not recommend them enough. Honestly. Sandra was the saving grace for our wedding, she was hands down the most helpful, attentive, reliable, and specific vendor we had.

    She took the time to be very clear on what we wanted, she wrote everything down, drew me pictures, and was able to give such helpful insight on what would look good and what wouldn’t.

    So accommodating with meet ups, changes to the orders, silly questions, etc. Wouldn’t choose anyone else!

    Dreams came true!

    Omg here Cherry Blossom now, don’t even question it. I hired them for our wedding at Now Sapphire in November and they did such a fantastic job. I literally cried over the beauty of our flowers! From our gazebo arch decorations to the bouquets, just stunning. Sandra was so easy to work with and accommodating. She made the process of working with an outside vendor a breeze.

    Super responsive and beautiful flowers

    Working with Sandra was a dream! She was quick to answer my emails, patient with me when I changed my mind so many times, and the end products were more beautiful than I could have imagined. Pur flowers were bright and vibrant, and she had everything arranged perfectly. She completely made my vision come to life, and i would definitely recommend Cherry Blossom for any bride's floral/decor needs.
