    For myself, I’d like less baby’s breath, more roses. It’s definitely a lot of flowers, but I think for $75 you should be getting a bit more bang for your buck. I like the leaf they’ve wrapped around the stems, do they have a wider one they could use?

    It seems a little high to me.  I’d think something like that would be around $50

    I agree with trying to get less filler flowers, and asking for a wider leaf or using more leaves to create a more “wrapped” look.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    You were charged $75 w/ a vase rental, but after you bought your own vases, the price was still $75?

    Or maybe i’m just confused ๐Ÿ™‚

    I work as the wedding director for a florist, and unless there is a hidden flower I can’t see somewhere in the back, you are definitely not getting $75 worth of flowers.

    Too much baby’s breath. If you go to most florists, you can get a similar bouquet to that for $75 that is mostly tulips (much more expensive than the filler). I think it’s a terrible deal, but it is still a pretty arrangement, so at least it has that going for it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Are you using flowers that are out of season?  Is that why it’s so much?  I thought gypsophilia (babys breath) was rather inexpensive and there seems to be a lot of it in your arrangements.

    One Thing I would like to note. These buds (look like lilies) haven’t opened yet. It looks like she put a lot of these in the arrangement. Ask if they will be open buds on your day. This arrangement is going to look so much fuller and look more expensive once the buds open.

    I think it looks like something you could do yourself. If I was paying $75 I think I would expect something more extravagant

    No, I dont think you should be paying $75 for this…maybe $50 but not $75! It is very pretty though!

    I don’t think it’s worth it. I gave my florist a vase (regular 5 by 5) and told her that I didn’t want to spend more than $25 on the arrangements. Can’t wait to see what she comes up with ๐Ÿ™‚

    NO! but that’s because I helped put together floral bouquets for way way less!

    I helped my friend put together centerpieces like this for $25 dollars (she borrowed the candelabra from friends).
