"Never skimp on your bridal bouquet. It is the one floral design that will be on your mantel, your bedside table, at your mother's house, your in-laws' house, and on your desk at work in photos for the next 50 to 60 years --
you had better like it!
- Katie Martin, Elegance & Simplicity (Washington D.C.)
The flower variety and quantity are the major factors in determing a price for a bouquet
If a flower is not in season - it will usually cost more per stem
Contrasting colors provide for more eye-catching photos
Larger flowers may cost more, but you would need less of them to create a fuller bouquet than a more inexpensive flower
