Flowers - in such a pickle!
Hi ladies, I need to vent and get some help.. All my planning has gone really well so far but I've hit a wall on something I thought I didn't give two hoots about - the flowers!!
I've had 2 quotes from florists.. one is more economic, sounds ok, I thought their centrepiece ideas sounded ok (the colours i wanted, tall vases / jam jars on alternate tables). The second florist is much more expensive but more modern, cooler, i get the feeling she 'gets' our theme more. She proposed some table centrepiece ideas designed to be more economic, but I'm not sure about them. They revolve around candelabra hire (to get some height without having to pay for a lot of flowers) but there's still a hire cost for those and it's not cheap..
I don't know what to do.. Has anyone got any tips of what I should be keeping in mind / good ways of keeping flowers effective but economic?? I'm in a bit of a stress as wedding is in 3 months and I need to sort it!!
Venue is an English country estate, we'll be getting married outside, marquee is quite modern.
Thoughts and moral support appreciated!!
