You should check your contracts and/or call both florists. Usually vendors do not want to “share” a wedding.

Thank your family member for their gracious offer and explain that you’ve already gotten a floral contract but perhaps they could apply their gift to the DJ or something. If the “dream” flowers were not enough of a deal-breaker that you would have been willing to sacrifice other purchases to make room in the budget when it was your money, then it doesn’t make sense to inflate the budget now that it’s someone else’s money.

I was also going to say to check the contract – normally they say something along the lines of no other florists or whatever. I probably wouldn’t go the route of 2 florists.

If given more of a budget, can you original florist execute the bouquets on a higher scale?

Also, is your “dream florist” going to be ok with only doing the ceremony flowers? I couldn’t imagine a florist wanting to waste the time to do only half a wedding when she/he could get paid for a full scale wedding job.
