WEDDING FLOWER BUDGETING | Ever wonder why your bridal bouquet costs so much?

Ever wonder why your bridal bouquet costs so much more than any other bouquet you have ever bought? Some of you might think you’re are being taken advantage of …. but trust me my lovelies … that’s not the case! Think about this … we here at Sue Gallo Designs take the time to get to know you, your likes, dislikes,  your tastes and personal style, your over all wedding vision and help you curate a bouquet that is simply perfect for you, your gown and your wedding day.

Your bridal bouquet has 2 to 3 times more flowers within it than you might think. and we use the highest quality of product of course! Because nothing but the best for our lovely brides!  After taking time to understand your vision, your wedding and your dreams, we custom order your bouquet flowers from quality farms and hand pick your blooms for the highest & freshest quality and prettiest blooms to create your dream bouquet. Your bouquet isn’t created with just whatever is available at the flower market that week. We have fostered amazing relationships with growers and suppliers who have the highest quality and freshest blooms around and work with them to ensure that we have exactly what we are looking for.  With our years of experience, we know just what blooms will look best, what colours will compliment each other, and what textures work best together to fulfill your vision.

Once we have the prettiest and freshest blooms in studio, it takes us time to carefully clean and condition those gorgeous blooms. Then we set to work on hand crafting and carefully curating your bouquet. This always take us 3 to 4 times longer than it would for us to create a market bouquet … because we want to get it just right … perfect in fact!

Then it’s perfectly and beautiful bound with the loveliest ribbons and wrapped up super pretty … just for you.

It has taken years to hone our craft and to perfect our methods to create beautiful florals. So when you receive a quote for your wedding flowers … stop for a moment, look beyond the bottom line and consider this,  the value of our work and  your time spent with us and how we inspired you, the time it took us to carefully plan the most perfect wedding florals along with you … the experience & knowledge behind our florals. We here at Sue Gallo Designs are fiercely passionate about our work and helping you to create a most remarkable celebration!
