Wedding Flowers: Finding a Last Minute Wedding Vendor
Guess what, bees? The Eels are two months out from our wedding and still do not have a wedding florist. That wedding stress I was talking about earlier? Yeah, some of it is totally self-inflicted. It’s our last major vendor to book, and I just haven’t gotten around to doing it yet. Flowers were always toward the bottom of the priority list for our wedding, and we set a budget of $2,000.

Rewind to January 2016 when I met with our first potential vendor and they quoted me a jaw-dropping $8,500. As someone who doesn’t even want her fiancé to spend $20 on a Costco bouquet of flowers, I would never have even considered this in the realm of possibility. I immediately nixed this vendor because: Know your audience. I felt that this vendor didn’t even consider our budget and my floral desires. They eventually contacted me again and were able to lower their proposal to half of the original proposal, but something about that smelled fishy and it wasn’t because we’re eels.
