- Wedding: September 2013
It seems like the things I never thought I would care about end up making me completely indecisive. I have met with 5 florists and I am really ready just to choose one.
I am looking for my bouquet, 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, 4 corsages, 10 bouts, 2 larger-ish “altar” displays (I don’t have an altar as it is not in a church), and 8 centerpieces (4 willow branch type ones and 4 smaller ones). My colors are dark purple and bright green.
I have attached photos of some work they have done. The problem is I couldn’t find anything as similar #1 has done as I am able to do with the others.
$1360 (all of my requirements, except 8 branch centerpieces (these were mazanita rentals that would be decorated-she showed me some she had) and no smaller ones)
This is the cheapest, but I am not sure I like her photos of her work as much as the other ones. However, she has does about a 4.9 on wedding wire (with 50+ reviews)
$1850 (all of my requirements, with 4 branches and 4 birdcage centerpieces, plus 10 chair sashes and cake flowers. Also lists things like candles/floating candles to surround. So it seems these include candles).
I like the pictures of her work the same as #3, but I feel she might include more (candles). This one also has about a 4.9 rating with 50 reviews on weddingwire.
Deposit is HALF of the total.
$ 1780 (all of my requirements). However she does not mention candles, so I am wondering if this could be extra. Obviously to add cake flowers to 10 chair sashes would increase the $. So I consider them about even price wise, I just wonder if I could more for my $ out of #2.
I like her pictures the same as #2 (which is to say I like their photos more than #1). This one also is the same review-wise.
Deposit is only $200
So which one would you pick? Should I just go with the less expensive option even though I like the pictures of the others work better? They all have glowing reviews.
I feel like I want to pick 2 or 3 simply because I like their pictures better, but I really don’t know if it’s worth the extra $ in the end. And even between them I can’t decide which one. All prices include delivery and tax.
I really feel like I have wedding brain about this now and I can’t think clearly. Anyone care to help me out and bring me back down to earth?
