Let me start by saying that IMO flowers are a necessary evil for weddings. We need to have some form of decoration, and flowers are nice, but I can not wrap my brain around the cost. I always (not just for the wedding) think that flower arrangements are a big waste of money because they just die and there is nothing left to show. I'd rather have supermarket roses that look pretty for a week, and when they die, it doesn't matter because they were only 10 bucks anyway.
So, I've been procrastinating and now finally am getting down to finding a florist. The first one I met with never got back to me with a quote so I've pretty much decided to move on rather than chase her down (and yes, she had my phone and email contact info). I've been in contact with a second florist, and I'm just not feeling it.
I wanted to buy the feather centerpieces and do them myself, but my venue won't do much decorating so I don't have anyone to set them up on tables. Fortunately for me, my mom has offered to pay for the flowers (so I wont be as stingy with money) but I still just can't get into it.
How do I get over this mental block???
