- Wedding: October 2010
I really hate to gripe, but I need to just get this out of me and it’s 2 am and nobody else is up when I get home from work.
Lets just say my coordinator has been less than helpful this entire time. I won’t bother to talk about the fact that she doesn’t really listen to me, or the fact that she seems to think that her ideas for my wedding should not be questioned.
What I want to talk about is her quote for the flowers and decorations for my reception. Although I understand that flowers can be one of the most expensive parts of a wedding, I wanted to get some real feedback here. She is not a magnificent florist, she is a wedding coordinator that happens to also arrange flowers as needed.
Bouquet (12 large callas, 6 monkey tails)
bridesmaid bouquets (5 large callas, 3 monkey tails)
table decor – manzanita brances
table decor -floral w/ branch container orchids w/calla
flower girl pomanders
Now I know flowers can be expensive.. I realize that, I really really do. But my question is what makes any of the descriptions she’s given worth as much as she wants me to pay?
I would like to scan in a picture of her idea of what an invitation should look like so I can give you an idea of what my fears are based off of. God only knows what she would have charged me for that monstrosity she had the nerve to call an invite.
Would anyone be caught dead paying $100 for 12 flowers and 6 sticks of fern? What kind of bouquet would that look like anyways?
