- Wedding: June 2013
Over the weekend, I met with two florists. I’m very early on in my planning with a June 2013 (yes, 2013) wedding date but I figure why not start a bit early?
So, still uncertain of my exact color scheme, I bring along some inspiration I’ve collected from Pinterest (LOVE that site), which includes an image of a french tulip centerpiece I adore (::sigh:: see image below).
The first flowers tells me I can get these no problems and quotes me about $250/each. I am assuming the centerpiece wouldn’t be this large but nonetheless, she makes no mention of any difficulty getting these. The second florist, however, knows for a fact that the centerpiece I’ve been eyeing has 120 french tulip stems at $5/each. She’s also convinced that I won’t be able to get them during that time of year and suggests I have dendrobium orchids instead to give me a similar shape.
I suppose I’m just in denial since I do adore the centerpiece below but at $5/stem, I think I will have to start looking for alternatives.
