- Wedding: May 2014
I have been having some difficulty in finding a florist. Some have been just not very quick to respond, or just entirely out of my budget.
I was pleasantly surprised today when I opened my email to find a quote from the florist I met last weekend.
Here is what she sent me. I need to know if this is a fair price. Because this came in way less than what I was expecting. Am I getting a good deal?? Or do I just not have a clue on how much flowers cost.
