What's in your bouquet?

Recommended Posts

Never wait until 2 months before your wedding to start working with your florist; even if it's recommended... Now that I'm a month out I received a quote for a $2000 definitely not what I'm looking to spend. I reminded her that my budget is about half that, so she keeps pushing "red ginger and orange tropicals." after a google search I'm not too big a fan of the gingers (although I don't know what they'd look like in a bouquet) and I'm still not sure what she's referring to as tropicals. On top of this are colors are orange, yet she keeps pushing red and purple...

 

Anyway, what I'd really like to know is what type of flowers are you using and any pictures would be great? Any links or info to indigenous JA flowers would be great so I can chop this bill!

 

 

 

Thanks!

I wish i could offer some suggestions, but I plan to just go with the bouquet from my free package.

 

good luck though!

Do you need to go with that specific florist?  I'd suggest getting some competing quotes from other vendors.

look into taking flowers with you.  I did clay flowers for my bouquet.

Here's some example.

This vender is back up until September but you might be able to find another one on Etsy or searching the web.  I've heard of other brides doing real touch flowers too.

 

They look so real- I had someone try to smell mine.  And they are a fraction of the cost.  Mine was only $150 I think... or $165. I bought it a couple months ago and all the prices run together after a while.   But I really like that you can keep them forever then.  Mine is the center piece on our dining room table.

 

Good luck!

Ack!  Is that $2000 quote from the florist that the resort recommends?  I'd just thought we'd figure out flowers when we got there.

Have you considered fake flowers?  I'm going through wedideas.com and they have a pretty good ready-to-order section.  I think there's a rush order charge but you might still be able to get an order in.  Even with the rush charge, you won't have to pay anywhere near $2k.  Probably more like a couple hundred dollars.

I got my bouquet and bouts from wedideas. It is en route as we speak. Here is a pic of my bouquet. Its not the finished product, as they hadn't put the ribbon or jewels on it. I got mine and six bouts for less than $200 (girls are carrying parasols to save some $$):
