    Are those prices for the exact same flowers? What are those prices based off of. I think its important to have a good florist and one that you like their previous work. Also sometimes florists that are just starting out or are not as well known lack the creativity of the more well known florists. On the other hand I think there is only a certain amount you should pay for a more experienced florist. If you think the cheaper one can do the same quality of work there is no need to go with the more expensive one. No one at the wedding will know who the florist was, It is only important to have pretty flowers. I dont think its important to pay alot more for a florists name.

    Woah, that’s a pretty big price difference! I’d say if the cheaper florist is still going to achieve the look you want, go for it with her! Spend that extra money somewhere else – either on the wedding or somewhere it’ll last (shoes???)!

    I am having a similar conundrum with two florists (they gave similar proposals for the flowers themselves, but one has labor costs 4x the other!)  I would say that with such a big difference, if the less expensive florist will be meeting with you so much and working with you so carefully, it might be better to go with her–it sounds like you’ll have so much control over everything anyway that you can make sure everything looks stunning. Another thing to consider though is your space–does it really need a lot of gussying up or do you feel like your flowers can be de-prioritized a little bit?

    As much as I absolutely LOVE beautiful florals, I just wouldnt be able to stomach spending $5500 on flowers.  But then again, if your budget allows it, I say go for it!  However, I did vote for the $1500 flowers.
