We are paying somewhere between $2000-2500, probably closer to the lower end of that estimate, depending on what we choose. We haven’t sat down to discuss basics, so I don’t know exactly what to expect (commenting to see what other Bees say!).
My advice to you is to bring lots of inspirational pictures. Bring pictures of what you like, and maybe even bring pictures of what you don’t like! Try to find pictures of flowers you’d like to incorporate. I truly don’t know much about flowers, and we selected our florist because I trust her work and I know that she knows what she is doing. I feel like I can convey to her a general feeling/guideline of what I want, and she’ll make it amazing. Good luck!
