What is the difference between a planner and designer?
Your wedding planner assists with the planning and logistics of your event. Most commonly budget tracking, contract negotiations, timelines, vendor referrals and the “how” of the wedding. A planner’s role is to help you plan your event within budget and without any “oops, we didn’t think of that” moments. Your wedding planner is an unbiased opinion who has only your best interest in mind when making suggestions and giving advice. Most importantly, your wedding planner will ensure that you’ve tied every loose end, so the event runs smoothly. Many times planners have great relationships with vendors and can offer preferred pricing and other perks that a client may not receive on their own. You can rest assured that the vendors your planner recommends are seasoned professionals who are sure to deliver above your expectations on your big day.
Your wedding designer is the pro who helps with the jaw-dropping aesthetics. A wedding designer works with you to develop your vision and bring it to fruition. Colors, décor, lighting and custom design elements are handled by this pro who has all the rental connections and the tools and team in place to also make unique custom pieces as well. If you’re dreaming of rustic glam and don’t know where to begin but know chandeliers are a must, a designer will help you take your ideas and turn them in to a well-styled and polished event that will have your guests raving long after. A well-styled event has a cohesive feel, without being to “matchy matchy”.
Tips for what determines cost of flowers
The costs of your wedding or other event flowers are largely determined by two factors:
- the price tags of the flowers themselves
(which includes shipping them to your florist from where they were grown, often not locally)
- and the cost of the labor needed to order, receive, preserve and arrange them.
Certain flowers cost less, typically because they are easy to grow and are produced in abundance throughout the year. Some examples of inexpensive flowers you might choose for your wedding: carnations, baby's breath and alstroemeria.
Others are especially cheap at certain times of the year when they are in season, like chrysanthemums in the fall. Seasonal offerings will vary depending on your geographic location. Mums will be at rock-bottom prices in September in the Northeast but they'll still cost a pretty penny in Montana, where almost every flower needs to be trucked in.
Flowers are much more expensive when they are difficult to grow and thus produced in smaller quantities. An example is the peony, which takes two years to bloom. Orchids and calla lilies are also among the higher-priced varieties. If you choose these for your bouquets or boutonnieres or centerpieces, you'll see your florist bill rise accordingly. However, don't let price alone be your deciding factor. A single peony might be expensive, but it fills out a centerpiece differently and makes more of a visual impact than a single carnation. This is where we customize everything to your likes and budget. Extensive or elaborate arrangements might also increase the labor component of your flowers. A cascade bouquet takes more time and attention than a basic nosegay. A complicated alter piece will be priced to account for the time and effort required to get the look desired.
