Times are tough and so are wedding budgets. Recently our friend Brett at Forever Blossoms was asked to do a small wedding for a friend. The wedding was intimate and took place at a private home with only 20 guest. The bride originally wanted white phaleonopsis orchids, but being on a budget, couldn’t afford the cost. She opted for green and white dendrobium orchids instead, keeping her cost down without sacrificing the simple and elegant look she wanted to achieve. An assortment of tropical greens including ti leaves, aspidistra, and bear grass helped give the arrangements volume and texture.
Brett took a sticky situation and made these marvelous arrangements, our favorite was the elegant and fun bouquet. We often hear brides asking for expensive varieties like Callas, Hydrangeas and Orchids but tend to get sticker shock when they hear the price. Several florist told us that they use color schemes to keep the customer happy when substituting flowers due to budgets.
