With this, we are not trying to ask you to spend a huge sum of money on flowers. The only point is- don’t restrict yourself by refusing all the expensive flowers. Prepare a fixed budget and stick to it but do make a space for a few classy flowers as well. Don’t ignore the advice from your florist by thinking that he is charging you higher.

Don’t fall in the trap of unreal inspirations, make sure that the flowers last longer. Placement is again a critical point to note here, don’t place the blooms near the ripened fruits because it can make the blooms drop off.
