My goodness! There seems to be so much discrepancies around the cost of wedding flowers. How many times have you heard and read comments such as:
"as soon as you mention wedding the price doubles"
"negotiate with the florist on the price of your wedding flowers",
"this is how to d.i.y your wedding bouquet and cut the cost of your arrangements"
The impression we are left with is that wedding florist tend to rip you off and you can really get what you want for so much less or even do it yourself for a fraction of the cost.
So as you consider ordering flowers for your wedding, I suggest you ask yourself the following:
1 WHY DO I WANT THAT BOUQUET?
2 WHY DO I WANT THOSE ARRANGEMENTS?
3 WHY DO I WANT THOSE FLOWERS?
4 WHY DO I WANT THAT PROP?
5 WHY DO I WANT TO D.I.Y?
6 WHY DO I WANT THOSE PLACE SETTINGS?
7 WHY DO I WANT FRESH FLOWERS?
8 WHY DO I THINK MY WEDDING FLOWERS ARE TOO EXPENSIVE?
As with most things, there are no hard and fast rules and by keeping the end result in mind, you can achieve your vision.
