    Is it the same company your sister used? If so that seems kind of weird that they would charge you so much more for so much less…

    Im afraid of when I go to price flowers! Everytime I ask a florist about prices, they tell me “dont know right now, better estimate closer to date”…well thats great! It almost is like flower prices change like the stock market!

    Maybe if you arent under time constraints, wait? I think flower prices depend on the season…

    Where we are having the wedding, said that I should budget $5000 minimally for flowers, decor and lighting.  MINIMALLY!  Sheesh!

    Instead of doing them myself, I found a local woman who does wedding flowers “on the side” (she had plenty of pictures of previous weddings she has done to show me the quality of her work).  She buys the flowers at wholesale prices and does all the wedding party flowers, centerpieces, church flowers etc. herself and then only tacks on a fee of $150 on top of how ever much the materials cost.  Ask around a lot and see if you can find someone to do them for you who isn’t necessarily a florist… That way you will have the DIY price without the DIY headache.
