VERY Pretty!! Are you building them yourself? Or, are you having a florist do it?

Hyrangea can get pricy because they are sold by the head, where as roses are sold in bunches. I love your inspiration though, very similar to where I’m going, but I’m going blue with my colors instead of brown.

Is this what you’ve been quoted already?

Able to offer a bit of insight into the rose/hydrangea problem, (I worked in a floral shop for 5 years during highschool/college..)

$3 per rose is not a bad price. Roses that you pick up at the grocery for $10 per dozen are poor quality. They have a lower petal count and they will often have imperfections. Quality long stem roses will have a high petal count, and the florist will select the best from the bunches for your bouquets.

Roses (at least at the shop where I worked) came to us in 25 packs, and the roses that would be on the sides of the box, etc, would still be bruised just because they had come such a long way. (Usually from Brazil or Colombia!)

As far as hydranga…. Hydrangea are delicate. They wilt and bruise easily, and you pay a premium in shipping costs as well as grower costs to get quality blooms. They will probably run you between $5 and $10 per head.

Hope that was helpful and not just a big rant! 🙂 I absolutely love your colors, I am doing the same shade of green and medium pink!
