Flowers and weddings are synonymous, right? You expect to see masses of blooms in the chapel or church and macnificent centrepieces of fragrant blooms at a traditional wedding. But do you know the price tag that comes with that?
I requested a quote from the best florist in Jozi ( as voted by the public) and to my dismay the quote came to more than R6000-00!! And I don’t even want a lot of flowers… Since then I have been too scared to get more quotes as I am afraid they will be more or less the same ( or even more???)
My idea for the flowers at our wedding is simple: I want small loosely arranged centrepieces (2 per long 8 seater table), 1 x bridal bouquet, 1 x bridesmaid bouquet and 6 buttonholes.
The rest of the reception hall should be decorated with autumn leaves and grasses etc. Some pics as examples of what I would like:
Above: My Dream Bouquet!!!; Bridesmaid Bouquet with Ranunculus but in creamy white.
Above: My ideal centrepieces – Cream & White Tulips & Ranunculus loosely arranged!
Above: Autumn Leaves for the rest of the venue; Chocolate & Cream colour scheme
Does that really have to cost almost R7000-00???? I am sure if I buy the flowers myself from MultiFlora it won’t cost that much…. But then I have to arrange them myself, which isn’t an issue but TIME is! I need to get cracking on this though, as time is fast becoming less and less…. as of today only 135 days to go AAAAAAGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!
