From what it sounds like, it would look nice. Who is paying for the wedding?

If you are paying for the wedding then she has no say. If she’s concerned about being “embarrassed” in front of her friends then she should pony up and pay the difference. If she is paying and she is willing to spend the extra money, then let her and save yourself the trouble.

If you’re paying for the wedding, explain to her that you are trying to save money! 

Plus, i highly doubt that she would be embarrassed with the floral design. I mean, really…. people will be looking at you and seeing how happy you are.. not if the floral design was PERFECT..

Embarrassed in front of her friends?  It’s your wedding, you’re paying for it, so why are her friends even invited? 🙂


Do what makes you happy.

Gosh, hope my poor mum isn’t going to be embarrassed! I’ve ordered two dozen jam jars online and we’re putting posies of roses in them! LOL Total cost $80 plus some dosh for a bit of ribbon to go round them!

If your mum is worried about you embarrassing her she should pay the difference. That’s such a harsh thing for her to say. Perhaps you could find some pictures to show her what you’re picturing. Maybe then she’ll come round.
