Before I start, let me state that I know calla lillies are expensive, especially when out of season. However, after soliciting three bids from florists all for essentially the same package of personal, ceremony, and reception florals, I decided on one I love and trust implicitly.
The problem? I want my bouquet and my three bridesmaids' bouquets to be solely calla lillies. I envisioned about 20 mini flame callas to make mine and 5 large white callas for each of the bridesmaids. The designer I want to go with quoted prices for these four pieces that were significantly more than the other two designers.
I don't really want to call her out on overpricing (the difference is way beyond slight price changes due to diffierent suppliers), but would like to know if any knotties had a similar bouquet(s) and how much they cost. The location of your wedding would be helpful too!
