So, we all know how big pinterest has gotten in the wedding planning world…I mean, what Bride-to-Be wouldn’t want to spend her days looking at endless amounts of wedding porn?! But we also know that many of the things we see on pinterest aren’t exactly doable or affordable for the average person or Bride. That’s where we come in! With the help of Maya Violet, our resident wedding flower planner, we are starting a series called Look for Less! It’s exactly what it sounds like…We (or you) find some wedding flower inspiration on pinterest, Maya Violet will then breakdown that look, plus, give you a shopping cart for a less expensive version of that look!
So, today’s look was found on Pinterest, courtesy of 100 Layer Cake, however, I was not able to locate the original post, so if anyone knows who the photographer and/or floral designer was, please let me know so I can give them credit! But anyways, here is the look… then read on for Maya Violet’s breakdown and look for less!
I looove this look, really for any time of the year – but the petite size of the container here would be *totally dwarfed* by a 10 person table…So, let’s pretend that we are doing a 10 person long table (6 feet long) and pretend that we’re using a rectangular or long oval container to echo the shape of the table. This is going to run about $70 per table and you could do 10 tables.
Here is the order you would need to place:
- Arabacum Star of Bethlehem White Flower – 10 bunches
- Mini Cymbidium Green Ice Orchid – 10 stems
- Dusty Miller Green Filler Flower – 10 bunches
- Kale White Bulk Flower – 30 to 35 stems
- Mood Moss Green Filler Flower – 10 pound box
Now, the look for less option costs less than $50 per table (again for 10 tables) and has just as much color and texture:
- Green Dianthus Flowers – 10 bunches
- Papier Mache Textured Filler Pack – Medium Pack
- Sea Foam White Orchid – 60 stems
- Pink Forest Peruvian Lilies – 10 bunches
Both of these costs estimates include a 5% Discount, so don’t forget to get yours before you checkout!
