More about wedding budgets and cost of flowers

Money Matters!!!

I have decided to address the issue of budget. Every Bride has one, you just may not know what that is YET!
But you will have to create an amount that you are comfortable with to fulfill your vision for your wedding day Florals. Now you can always just let your Florist go crazy with design inspiration. There's nothing a Florist likes better than to let us  just CREATE! Give us the color palette and theme and let the Inspirations Begin Baby!! That's a Florist's Dream but rarely the case these days. You probably have been standing at the Magazine Rack at Barnes and Nobles with a Latte in hand drooling over the latest wedding that has been chronicled in one of those High End Weddings. Big Beautiful Arrangements on tall glass pedestals filled to the brim with roses, hydrangea, orchids, dahlias, callas, little greenery,etc.  Yes, I know they are gorgeous. And yes they are at the higher end of what centerpieces cost. Most of  the weddings featured in those magazines are upward of $50,000-$100,000 total budget weddings. And the floral budgets are about 10% or more. These are the photos that most Brides bring to me during our consultations.

Now I believe that every Bride deserves a gorgeous wedding no matter what her budget is. We are very creative and can design many ways to save you money but you must be honest and reasonable with your Florist. We want your wedding to be Beautiful too. After all, every wedding is advertisement to every guest in attendance. Let your Florist suggest ways to reuse items like using the centerpieces down the aisle instead of spending money on extra aisle bouquets. Maybe she can use the Gazebo piece again for the Sweetheart table. If you must modify the budget then decide where you want the biggest bang for the buck. Ceremony, Cocktails or Reception area? How about using candles for the cocktail area and saving the budget for those larger centerpieces.  How about going with the Florist
suggestions for the kinds of flowers that are going to give you the size and color you want to achieve those big beautiful centerpieces at a lower price point. Let us work our magic. There is nothing we want more than to see the Bride radiant and smiling on her wedding day.   🙂
