- Wedding: October 2010
So we had the meeting with the florist. I went in with a printed color collage which was a huge help. I knew in my head I wanted calla lilies, gerberas and tulips… or a combination of those. However, I wasn’t sure those flowers would work together. The florist showed me a pic of callas and gerberas together… perfect!
Sooo, here’s what we’re getting…
My bouquet will be hand tied dark purple callas, orange gerberas (with the dark centers), dark purple lisianthus, monkey tails and some kind of grass that will loop over the top (can’t remember what it’s called.) The stems will be completely wrapped in white.
My bridesmaids will have orange gerberas and dark purple lisianthus. Their bouquets will be partially wrapped in orange. My Maid/Matron of Honor will have a bit extra added to her wrapping (not sure what).
Fiance will have 2 dark purple callas wrapped in black as his bout.
The groomsmen have non-traditional bouts which I’m excited about. The fathers have non-traditional but are different from the groomsmen.
I can’t remember what we’re doing for the grandmother’s corsage for fiance’s granny. I just know there is a dark purple calla in it.
So, we went through everything then the florist explained the payment deal (she’ll call tomorrow to let me know what its all going to run us.) We are using the florist our wedding/ reception location recommends so it will break down something like this:
Bridal bouquet – $150
Bridesmaids bouquets – $50 each
Bouts – $10 each
Corsages – $15 each
So, that will add up to $405 or so to go to our ceremony site then anything above that goes to the florist. Now here’s where I get really excited…
My fiance is a tattoo artist (haha amongst other things) and the florist wants work. If she likes the draw up he does for her, she said we can probably do it in trade! Yay!
I just wish I had some pics to post…
Oh, and sorry for the long post, I’m just so excited!
