Hi, just wondered if anyone had any tips when organising the flowers / centerpieces. We've already had a meeting with one florist recommended by our venue, but I found her a little rude which makes me not want to give her any business. We have another consultation with a different florist on Saturday, so wondering if anyone had any tips on saving money on flowers.\n\nAlso, if anyone would be kind enough to take the time, does £780 sound expensive for the following? ( I know it depends on species of flowers, size etc, just imagine "generic" and "average" :), we're having anything out of the ordinary etc)\n\nBrial bouquet with crystals in the roses, 2 X bridesmaids bouquet, buttons holes for men X 6, coursage for MOB and MIL, 8 X centrepieces of just flowers stuck into an oasis, 1 X top table arrangement, silk petals for scattering on top table.\n\nI know it's difficult to estimate based on that, but wondered if that's the kind of going rate for flowers. We will have the second quote on Sat to compare, just wondered if anyone had any tips on getting it cheaper, and whether £780 is a lot for standard wedding flowers.
