there should be a specific budget for wedding flowers and decide of who

place the flowers? What type of bases would you like to use? What color
will be suiting my décor best?

arrangement, go for it. If you are using the DIY option, make super

and candles. Play around with the vases, the flowers and the other
elements that you might have, always vision your arrangements with the
rest of the décor and the exact place were you will be placing them.
