I have somewhat of an etiquette question that I wanted your opinion on! For our reception, I have my heart pretty set on decorating with greenery garland all around the room. When I initially met with our florist, all of her prices seemed fair besides this element. She charges $10/foot of garland that will just be placed on surfaces around the room, not installed or really styled in any way. Wholesale, I have priced the garland at almost half that which would save us hundreds of dollars! My question is would it be insulting to our florist to order the garland wholesale and have a family member pick it up and be in charge of placing it around the room? I know it will have the same effect as if the florist did it, I am most concerned about insulting our florist the day of the wedding or causing a major faux pas.
Thanks for your advice!
