Oh my goodness, I got the quote last week.  I opened my email and saw that it had come in, but I was at work, so I didn’t look at it yet.  Instead, I went to grab the customer invoice I had just printed.  I was focusing more on the floral quote, though, than on my job.  I was worrying about the cost of the flowers, wondering how much it was going to be…  And then I looked down and saw that the piece of paper I was holding said, “Total: $10,583.00”.  I just about fell over.  So glad I was looking at the customer invoice instead of my quote!

I am realllly cutting back on flowers. My wedding is in the winter so the BMs are holding muffs instead of bouquets. I am also making the bouiniers… $12-$15 for a bout? Forget it! I’m buying either calla lillies, or roses, cutting them to size, putting some floral tape arounf them and voila! Keep them in the fridge and spray them often ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m also getting simple corsages probably from the grocery store for my mom etc..

That being said, since I’m only really paying for my bouquet, it’s going to be gorgeous.. a whole $160-$175 worth gorgeous ๐Ÿ™‚ However it may also be reduced in price as I want a hydrangea in it and they aren’t in season, so I bought a fake one from Michaels to include with the real flowers ๐Ÿ™‚
