Why is a bridal bouquet so expensive?
People often wonder why is a bridal bouquet so expensive? Couples inquiring for wedding flower styling options always feel that if they drop the word wedding or bridal bouquet the price suddenly increases. And they are partly right. The price is higher than if you just buy flowers in a flowershop. Here is why…
Only the very best for a bridal bouquet
When we make a bridal bouquet we only use the best of the best flowers we can find. Every detail is examined. For bridal bouquets we have dedicated plower purchasing sessions where we go out and buy the flowers we selected for the wedding. We choose only the most beautiful flowers and out of those we select only the best ones. And as with many other things in life; the best is often a little more expensive.
It takes time to arrange a bridal bouquet
If you compare arranging a bridal bouquet to arranging a bouquet from the flowershop, bridal bouquets take a lot more time to create. Of course it has to be perfect. Everything should fit seamlessly and the finishing must be superb. That takes time. We often need an hour or even one and a half hours to arrange a bridal bouquet.
Plus, the time leading up to production also takes a lot of time. For instance; when couples visit our flowershop for a Wedding Flower Styling Session, we don’t want to rush you into making decisions. We take the time for it. And because couples always want the best too, and because everybody’s choice sets are unique, there is always a lot of correspondence and communication going back and forward. All considering; a bridal bouquet takes approximately three hours to make.
