£950 I was quoted for flowers for the wedding. I was horrified. Near on a grand for something that is going to die within a week.
With that in mind I set about doing my own.
"You're absolutely crazy!"
Etc etc. insert quotes similar to above from majority of the world.
Nevertheless, I was not deterred.
So with maids of honours in tow I dragged them to covent garden flower market in Vauxhall (no idea why it's called covent garden flower market when it's not even in covent garden?!) at 6am (on a saturday) for a trial run...
The flower market was one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. It was like a secret garden. Absolutely outstanding. And a fraction, and I mean a FRACTION, of the cost.
We then set about making the flowers. Which was incredibly rewarding. I like the fact that me and my maids will have made them. I think it makes it much more personal and special. Not to mention saving my myself about £700.
