Q: Is the budget enough for flowers and décor?
A: The budget is very limited, to keep the all inclusive package affordable. The allocated budget is sufficient for a basic and minimalistic set-up for 70 guests in the reception area and gorgeous décor in the chapel. If managed correctly, the budget will be enough for the bridal bouquet, bridesmaids boquette and boutonnières as well. Its important to remember the availability of a flower as well as the different prices of flowers during the year. A Peony will be much more expensive than a carnation, which will make your budget even more limited. You are however not limited to the allocated budget. Zetties Daydreams will provide you with a quote and any additional fees can be paid directly.
