I’m overwhelmed with the choices and prices for flowers. What is the best advice you have for me as a destination bride coming to Anna Maria Island?

For this one, we reached out to Mark from Flowers by Edie to gain some expert advice. He suggests, “Look at magazines and Pinterest for photos you like, but don’t get discouraged with the price of recreating the exact floral combination. Many times a very similar look and feel is achieved with more budget-friendly florals.”
He also suggested picking a style and color and being more flexible with the actual blooms. Market conditions and seasonal plantings determine the stock and pricing of individual flowers. If you give your florist flexibility, you may even find their buyer could source a typically expensive stem at significant savings, and they will pass that onto you.
