I received my flower estimate today and I’m pretty happy with it. However, the saver in my would like to cut it down by a few hundred dollars and I’m looking for advice as to what I really can eliminate.
My mom wanted a wrist corsage but then she complained that its going to be in the way and that she only wants something really tiny. I thought it was standard to get moms/grandmas flowers but if she wants something that you can hardly notice, do I really have to spend the money on it? I’m not sure about my FMIL but I know my grandma will rip hers off because she won’t stop touching it. This would save around $60, not much I know but I figured it was worth asking Bees for advice.
Do the men all have to have flowers too? Can’t I just give the groom a boutonniere and not worry about all the groomsmen/fathers? This would save me $100 and right now, I just have simple white rose boutonnieres.
I chose 2 different table arrangements. Large centerpieces and smaller underwater centerpieces. I was thinking that I would only do the large centerpieces on the parent tables (2) and then the remaining tables be the underwater centerpieces. This would save $400. Do I have to have half and half or can I make it unbalanced?
Thanks for all advice!
