Wedding Planner Connections


This week we finally booked our florist and yes we only have 2 months left. Why did it take me so long well like most couples, we have a budget. Unlike most couples I do not like flowers that much. I know crazy! So, this is where the complication arises. I still wanted everything to look wonderful but not with a ton of flowers.

Also as a wedding coordinator, I know too many vendors. I started my search off with pricing out how much greenery would cost and then reached out to 3 different florists to execute my vision.

Our budget was $1500.00.

The first florist I contacted never got back to me... It happens during the busy season. They forget. I know it's not cool but it happens. The second florist took 2 months to respond. Good thing I started my search early. This is what I received.

Florist B

  • 9 boutonnières

  • 8 Tables with greenery and berries

  • 8 Tables with greenery and floating white flowers

  • 1 sweetheart table garland - 10 ft

  • 2 window sill greenery - 12 ft

  • 2 extra palms for large candlesticks

The cost came out to $1750.00

Then by some miracle, my normal contact got back to me and she gave us a quote.

Florist A

  • 9 boutonnières

  • 8 Tables with greenery and berries

  • 8 Tables with greenery and floating white flowers

  • 1 sweetheart table garland - 10 ft

  • 2 window sill greenery - 12 ft

  • 2 extra palms for large candlesticks

The cost came out to $862.00

We, of course, went with Florist A. Yes, it took forever to get the quote but I know her work and I know she can create something wonderful for us. In the end, most florists would have been Florist B's price range. However; as a wedding planner I am lucky to have known this florist for years and I only provide the very best. If the very best is also price efficient so be it.

And we have FINALLY booked our final vendor. I can't wait to show you next week for our design.
