I am planning on creating my own centerpieces (with my MIL since she has done this before) as I wanted more of a non-floral / tablescape arrangement. Wood accents, colored glass, fun boxes and vases, candles with some flowers.
Questions for you all:
-Have you ever done this for your wedding?
-Was it cheaper in the end or same price as booking someone?
-Where did you shop? Store or online? What websites did you use?
-How much in bulk did you get? How much extra did you get?
-Who set it up on the day of the wedding? You, other florist, reception person, family, friend, day of coordinator?
I would like your ideas for where I can go for (1) ideas & (2) purchasing the items in bulk / inexpensive.
Here is where I have gone so far:
(2) Christmas Tree Shoppe
I am planning on going to the Metropolitan Flower Exchange in North NJ for additional ideas.
Let me know!
Wedding is in Oct 2014.
