ANYWAY. When I last wrote, I had addressed our plan for minimal floral, and what Disney was quoting us. The biggest chunk of change was in the personals, which is the one area of floral/decor where we are allowed to use an outside vendor.
At first, I thought- "Do I really want to incorporate two different florists? Is it worth the trouble?" Because Disney would still be providing ceremony/reception floral, no matter what. After some light research and quick calculations, though, I found that I could save myself around $500 by working with another florist for personals. So, um, yeah. IT'S WORTH THE TROUBLE.
