everyone knows a trip to the florist is typically pricey. yet, the more i look at wedding flowers and the price tags that are attached, the more i want to find an alternative ... that's cheaper. it seems that whenever the word 'wedding' is attached to something, vendors maintain the right to inflate the price as they see fit.
i'm looking for very homogenous bouquets (white peonies, white tulips, yellow mums and a few others) and i started wondering if i could pick up a few bouquets at a local market ... they typically have nice, fresh bunches of flowers that are in season. and i think if you cut the stems fairly short and tied them together with some ribbon, they'd look fine.
i don't know - does anyone do this?
