I am sorry, but I haven't received one realistic quote for flowers. It's absolutely amazing to me. What is it about hearing the word wedding and thinking to yourself, why don't I just add an additional zero to the price that would normally be???
So I have come to a decision. I am scrappping the flowers. The practical part of me that realises these things will be wilting before the day is over knows that more than triple digits is too much for to pay for flowers. And since I won't be able to find any flowers for less than that, I have decided that I just don't need them.
We are fortunate that flowers will be decorating the church anyway, as it is Easter sunday. The bridesmaids will be holding custom made clutch bags to match their dresses, as will I. The men will have a simple handkerchief in their pockets and pocketwatches.
I don't know what to get for the mothers or the wedding coordinator, because they normally would be getting corsages.
I also hate the idea of scrapping the bouquet toss, so I really have to come up with alternatives for that. But I already feel better knowing that I haven't spent a truckload of money on something that won't even last as long as my honeymoon.
