WEDDING FLOWER BUDGET:
NOTES:

It is always helpful to talk to your florist about your wedding flower budget.

This means they will listen to your desires, look at your floral requirements, and make the right suggestions for you, giving you the best value for money and making your budget go as far as it can. 

It doesn't mean they will try and spend up all of your budget!
