If you are in the midst of planning a wedding, you are surely worried about the budget for flowers….and you should be!
I did a little research and discovered that the average cost for wedding flowers is a whopping $1500…Yikes!
Wait ’till you see what we were able to do for a fraction of that!
Tonia and Michael’s Wedding was two days away.
We were off to Market Flowers at the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market:
We had a plan….
We had vases…..
We had ribbon, raffia, floral tape, floral foam, packing boxes
The Bride and her faithful worker bees.
