- Wedding: October 2013
So this is what I am asking for:
1 Bridal Bouquet: – 11″ in diameter (large size) made with real touch calla lilies in dark orange and purple, real touch fuji mums in purple, silk bells of ireland in green, real touch and silk french rose bud in orange, mini sangria tiger lilies, sangria cosmos, green with burgundy striped orchids and hypericum berries. Wrapped in ivory with brooch at the top of the handle.
2 Bridesmaids bouquets: each- 8″ in diameter (standard size)Smaller versions of your bouquet minus the tall bell of ireland. Wrapped in your choice of ribbon color with rhinestone embellished handle.
4 Boutonnieres: Smaller purple calla, hypericum berries and bell of ireland petal wrapped in your choice of satin ribbon with a double french-knot overlay and rhinestone brooch. (minus rhinestone brooch I forgot to take that out and FI is not going to wear it LOL).
1 Wrist Corsage: for pin-on with 2 purple smaller callas, green stripes phalaenopsis orchids and hypericum berries. Wrapped in your color choice of satin ribbon.
1 Flower girl basket: in ivory satin with silk flowers in sangria and orange.
1 Cake topper: orange real touch roses, small purple callas, sangria mini lilies and green silk orchids and a bit of greenery
Real touch quote was $511
Live flowers quote was $ 565 – has to substitute one or two flowers since these were not around for October. This is invluding a $90! fee to my house and she is literally 10 minutes away from me. This is a woman that works out of her home and her overhead is lower than a floral shop so I know if I go to a floral shop they will charge me probably just as much or maybe even more that the $565
FI has asked me to contact the real touch floral woman that I got the $511 qupte from to see if she can make us one of the bridesmaids bouquet and ship to me and i will of course pay her for that beforehand ($80) to see what it will look like in person. She has no returns and I have only seen pics online. He said he wants to see it in person and if we both like it we will order the $511 package. If we don’t then we are only out $80 for one bouquet. At first he was hesistant to do real touch but now looking at cost and also having to worry about another vendor on day of and other reason why people go with real touch it is making more sense to him.
So I contacted her and waiting on her response to se if she can make me one bridesmaid bouquet and ship to me beofre I order entire package.
