How Much is too Much?

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies, I'm getting married in Vegas on August 15th, 2009.

 

I have hired a florist and given her a deposit but am finding that her mockups for my wedding leave a lot to be desired and are slightly overpriced

(I think)...$340 for my bridal bouquet?

I have found that she will listen to my request and then do a mockup or send me a photo of something that is not even close to what I had asked for.

 

As you can imagine this is leading to some feelings of frustration on my part.

I want to enjoy this process - Not be frustrated by it.

 

That being said, I have 2 questions for you...

 

Do you think $340 is too much to pay for a bridal bouquet?

 

Have you worked with a good florist in Las Vegas that you can recommend?

Well, my bouquet is only going to be $120. But the price can vary from low to extremely high depending on the types of flowers you want.

 

What flowers did you request to have in your bouquet? (My bouquet is going to have roses which helps keep it reasonably priced).

Also, the price for flowers may be alot more expensive in Vegas because they are not grown there. It's nothing but desert and everything has to be brought in.

That does seem like a lot. I thought the islands were more expensive since everything has to be flown in, but Vegas is right here! That is unfair that they charge that much, just because they can. This may be a weird suggestion, but they have Costco in Las Vegas. Why not order their bulk bouquets and centerpieces? The prices include delivery and they are very inexpensive.

Thanks for your replies Ladies. My bridal bouquet was to include some roses and some lilies and some dried filler. It was nothing out of the ordinary. I looked at the costco website and found that basically for the price of my bouquet I could get the entire wedding flower ensemble.

 

1 Bridal bouquet

2 Brides Maid bouquets

1 Toss Away bouquet

6 Corsages

6 Attendant boutonnieres

3 Centerpieces (vases not included)

1 Rose Petal bud

 

$399

 

What a Deal!

 

Also, I can order 100 stems of Roses for $100. Or 50 calla lillies for $90. The options are endless. My super talented MOH and I can put together our own bouquets!

 

The $1500 I was going to spend on Flowers is now looking more like $500....So What to spend the extra $1000 on is the question.

 

I Love it! Thank You!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
