I’m new to the board, happy wedding to you all.
We’re getting married in June 2023. We are having a church wedding followed by a reception at a near by venue.
Our church is costing almost £1000 which shocked me to my core but anyhow that’s not the issue. (Kind of is if they want to keep my flowers too lol).
The leaflet that we were given on booking and all information online says ‘contact (lady’s name) for floral requirements in church’. This has baffled me a bit as to whether or not I’m allowed to have an alternative florist? Are churches strict about who provides flowers? I have an upcoming consultation with a florist I met at a wedding fayre but don’t know what to say about the church flowers!
I also read somewhere that wedding flowers should be left for Sunday service? Has anyone come across this? Surely not when paying all that money for the church considering the basic CofE fee is just under £600.
Any help would be appreciated .
