Lemme break it down for ya.. if I was to tell you that a bouquet costs $180 exactly, then you are going to expect exactly $180 worth of flowers in your bouquet. But designing your bouquet is a unique process. It isn’t based on a formula or template, because let’s face it, no two weddings are the same. And we’re dealing with nature, which can be pretty unpredictable at times (thanks heaps, global warming!).
Sometimes flowers arrive and the bloom is HUGE. Much bigger than normal. But you asked for a lightweight bouquet so your arms don’t fall off while holding it for hours on end.. and these big-ass blooms are freakin heavy. So now I need to change the original design. Instead of ripping you off by giving you fewer flowers than what you paid for, or giving you a massive $180 bouquet that doesn’t match your request for a ‘lightweight’ bouquet, I now have extra flowers that I can throw into your bridal table arrangements to make that look bigger and better.
Or maybe your venue includes 24 guest chairs for your ceremony included in your hire fee. Most ceremony ‘packages’ come with set items. Every venue is different, so we don’t want you to pay for things you don’t need.
Are you catching what I’m saying?
