    @laura.batty:  I see lots of dollar signs and imagine a production more than a wedding from this company.  Sure a wedding is a fun an event, but it is only one day so I can’t see going into debt over this.  Not my thing, but if it’s yours then go for it. (ps. fyi. a helpful hint is to pick a main catagory and then add tags to the post.  it avoids the appearace of spamming the main board and if you have a poll it ensures that everyone voting will be voting on the same poll to give you a better picture of how the votes stack up).

    There is always a trade off involved.  How you decide to balance to two is up to you. In my case at the same time we’re saving for a house and our honeymoon all while being determined to not go into any debt because of our wedding.  I’d say meet with her (there’s no harm or cost in that!) see what she has to offer and decide if it’s worth it. Also remember that she is a salesperson so it’s her job to push right to the edge of the budget and say what you want to hear.  Remember that this is a business transaction and you have to be able to work with her.  Plue DIY for some things can be really fun.

    I am hiring one to style both my ceremony and reception. The flowers, stationary, and decor comes with the stylist . I am not the DIY type of bride but If I were you I would compare the cost of doing things yourself to the price of having some one doing it for you. If the price of hiring some one is out of your price range you can reduce the price by doing some of the decorating yourself. Also my venue offered me nicer chairs and linens so this reduce the decorating cost for me. My ceremony is in a artium with lots of trees and flowers. So, I didn’t need much decor for that. Also bring the price of the decorating down. See what type of services your venue offers 1st and go from there.

    I think that if I were to go this route, I would hire a wedding planner/stylist rather than a florist/stylist.  The former would also be there the day of to handle everything, and the days leading up to the wedding to make sure all is done (e.g., venders paid, rehearsal coordinated, etc.).

    if she will work within your budget go for it.  i met with one of these stylist florist and she said she only starts working with people’s whose budgets are $6000 or greater.  i said, see ya….

    actually i didn’t, i finished the appointment, she already knew she was out of my budget.  we did finish dicussing everything.  she said she thought she could be close to my budget maybe $1000 over,  like in the $3-4k range.

    i get the proposal in the mail and it was close to $10,000.

    i threw it in the recycle bin.
