    Well I went with DIY flowers, so my vote will always be to get more bang for your buck.  However, I’m not one of those “dreamed of her wedding since she was a little girl” types, so flowers, dresses, etc were not that important to me.

    I’m typically a quality over quantity person, so I’d go with the better one.

    Also, have you considered working with them to get the price down? For example, there have been sooo many threads that say that tall centerpieces are a waste of money (gets in the way of people talking, so they just get moved to the floor anyway). And you could also “semi-DIY” – the shepherd’s hooks seem like they’d be pretty easy to put together without having to pay someone to do it.

    Honestly… in my opinion flowers are pretty hard to not look pretty unless they are dead.  With most things I’m a quality person, but I would definitely go with the quantity here.

    @Meant2Bee:  oh in that case you should definitely get them and make your dream come true!

    Other than the shepherds hooks and gift box, it doesn’t really seem like there’s that much of a difference between the two? The second one just broke down the different types of arrangements (sweetheart table, candelabra, low centerpieces etc.), so I’d honestly go with the one whose work you really find stunning vs the average one. Heck, for $2500 to *not* get flowers that will wow you??

    In the case of flowers I would say quantity over quality. I never notice wedding flowers at any wedding I’ve been to. For our 20K+ wedding I’m spending like $100 on flowers lol I say go with the cheaper one

    I don’t know…it doesn’t seem like you’re getting that much more to me.

    The extras are: shephards hooks, gift box, sweetheart table decor. 

    If you really love the other guys work and prefer his centerpieces…I’d go with him.  Shephards hooks you can do yourself (or give up, the ceremony isn’t that long!) and I’m sure you can figure out something else (if anything) for a gift box and sweetheart table decor (such as placing your own bouquets on that table).

    I’d go with the one you like better.

    I’d go with quality.

    If you reallyyyyyy love the first florist, then go with him. But, if the other florist is almost neck & neck, go with him.

    Meant2Bee:  for me quality matter more over quantity you can go to the florist ask ask him to change flowers from the in season or flower that grow all year around that can help you save more or get more since you will not be ordering exotic expensive flower
