Flowers

What im getting for our hard earned money...

1x Bouquet- Natural stem posy of: white lilianthus, champagne roses, white singapore orchids, lavender, magnolia leaves, lambs tongue, old mans whiskers and wrapped with silver ribbon.

1x Grooms Buttonhole- white rose with singapore orchid and old mans whiskers

2x BM Bouquets- Smaller than brides but with same flowers. Also a few florets of deep blue delphiniums.

2x Groomsmens buttonholes- white rose with a floret of deep blue delphinium

2x FOB Buttonholes- White rose with sprig of lavender

2x MOB Wrist Corsages- Mini Champagne roses, dusty miller, lavender sprigs, vine andsilver ribbon

TOTAL = $355

Then for the reception/ceremony im buying bulk white/burgandy singapore orchids at $4.50 per bunch of 8 stems and then large bunches of tall willow at $10 for 15 sticks. All i can say is that it works out a lot better than the $1,600 quote i got the other day for the phalenopsis orchids that i originally wanted.
