So I just got a quote back from a local florist for the bouquets + such that I would like, it was just a rough quote so I can budget since wedding is not for 1.5 years. Anyway, talk about sticker shock! I knew florals were $$$ but I guess from the basic research I had done, I had gotten a number 1/2 what I was quoted in my head. Now I know this is just one place and I am waiting to hear back from some more but goodness me!
So then that got me thinking about the number of times I have already been sticker shocked during wedding planning (all of 2 months worth) and the fact that FH and I have already had to amend our initial budget.
What were your initial OMG sticker shock moments?
I think photography was the big big one for me, and we ultimately did end up going with a photographer well over what we initially budgeted but we just connected so well with her and love her work so what you gonna do. So then its just been a matter of deciding what we would be fine with cutting or going the more budget route for, in order to account for these "unexpected" costly items. So far we've nixed the cake and fancy invites, and FH has gotten super stoked about self DJing!
I guess its time to find something else to re arrange to make room for florals....
Have you cut corners on some items to make more room for others in your budget?
