Why Are Flowers So Expensive?! How to Select Your Floral Arrangements and Budget Accordingly
Flowers are considered one of the more expensive purchases for your wedding day. Mary Simmons, owner of Persephone Floral Atelier, breaks down what contributes to the cost of your floral arrangements and how to budget accordingly. She also shares when you should start booking, current trends, and what arrangements (aside from your bouquet) you should consider.
Get to know Mary:
Mary is a trained artist and oil painter who combined her artistry with her passion for flowers when she began helping friends with their wedding flowers. Shortly after her daughter Sibyl was born in 2015, she quit her office job and opened up Persephone Floral Atelier-A floral studio dedicated to sharing the natural beauty of flowers through our wild and evocative designs.
Since then, she has served numerous couples, helping them create the wedding of their dreams. Originally based in Chicago, she recently moved the business headquarters to Connecticut. Persephone continues to serve discerning clients in the Midwest and East Coast.
