Well Ladies, I just added up again how much this wedding is going to cost. I have been pretty ...
As a follow up to my post last week regarding my florist visit. Well the owner came back in with her quote and WHOOAAAAAA....I either under budgeted (3,000) or I have expensive taste. If anyone who has followed my blogs already know that I'm not really a flowers girl; I can tell you what I like when I see an arrangement, however I'm not to savvy with pricing or terminology.
So of course at my consultation, I show the florist what I like for my reception centerpieces and those ones I choose came out to be either $150 or $165 per centerpiece and I have approx 20 tables. WTF!!! I invested in pin spotting for my centerpieces so I decided to do all tall centerpieces. Well that is definitely going to have to change. I will have to do some high and some low in order to cut costs as well cut down the number of pin spotting lights.
And not to add I have very large wedding party and their bouquets are running me $58 a pop! This sucks....because in one breathe I say I could care less about flowers but then in another I don't want some "rinky dink" centerpieces or bouquets either.
So ladies I'm asking what is your flower budget and are you seeing that you may have to increase yours also?
