Just a pure vent…sorry peoples!
I nearly thought I had everything sorted, turns out I dont.
Florist I was going with who I had every confidence in has decided to pull the pin.
Her reason was they hadnt done too much silk flowers before and it was too hard to put it together. (only reason im going with silk, because one of my BMs is allergic to flowers, and 2 of my BMs didnt like my idea of walking down with a clutch purse instead, also.. trying to half my cost)
So fair enough if she doesnt have the confidence to do it. Thats fine, I appreciate that she even gave me a phonecall.
Gives me 4 months to find silk flowers, I really dont trust many other florists in my small city. They tend to have the habit of ripping people off. Im thinking about DIYing them myself but I just dont want to put the pressure on myself with another DIY item.
FH reckons I will be fantastic to put it together. Im just losing motivation! well actually I just dont want to do it! Id rather for once in the wedding stuff that its not left up to me to do something??
Anyone feel this too?

somethingspectacular.com – some of the best silk arrangements I’ve ever seen!!!!! Most of the flowers on their site are artificial. I considered them for a while but I’m deciding to go with real flowers

Are you doing just the bouquets or are you also doing centerpieces? You may be able to find nice silk flowers for not too expensive if you look around. I’ll try to find out where my FSIL buys hers normally as she doesn’t like how fake some of the silk flowers look and only buys the ones that look realistic.

Sorry. Also im not in the united states.. so shipping would be a problem if I had to go overseas.
I just really dont want to do it tho. But I think I will. The hunt for nice silk flowers is on! Lucky I dont have to do centrepieces tho! what a relief!
