Comprehensive Check list for Shopping for your Wedding Bouquets and Floral Decor
When you visit with your potential florists you will want to have some idea of what florals you will be needing for your wedding. What follows is a basic shopping list for your personal, ceremony and reception florals. Use this list to help you create your wedding flower budget.
Who Pays For What?
Although there are no longer any hard and fast rules on who pays for what, traditionally the brides family pays for the ceremony and reception flowers, the bridesmaids and flower girl bouquets, and the groom’s boutonniere. The groom’s family pays for the brides bouquet, the fathers, grandfathers, and groomsmen’s boutonnieres, the mother’s corsages and any rehearsal dinner flowers.
