Somehow I just can't get myself to pay €100 for a bouquet I'll only use for a day. It wouldn't have been fancy or complex, just peonies that are in season for my May wedding. Is it my Dutch blood that boils with this feeling of injustice? Am I just tired because everything for a wedding just seems to get so much more expensive?
You can always dry your bouquet. I remember we had a bouquet drying upside dow in our kitchen when we were young. But this doesn't appeal to me when it concerns my weddingbouquet. It just makes the flowers look old and dead. A framed picture of the bouquet would be a better reminder. But that's not for me. I guess my bouquet won't be made of real flowers, because I would like to keep it as a reminder.
There are so many options, and if you're not able to make them yourselve there is always Etsy.
