Problem:

I have 7 bridesmaids but the packages only covers 4-5 bridesmaid bouquets, what should I do? How much extra do I need to add to my order?



Short Answer:

For small quantity changes for bridesmaid bouquets and centerpieces we suggest adding 1 bunch of greenery and 1-2 bunches of your favorite flowers to your order. The floral recipe disbursement will be a bit different than our suggested recipe, but you'll have more than enough to create the extra arrangements.
Long Explanation and Example:
Ok, so let's say you've fallen completely and utterly head over heals with the Large Bright and Cheerful package, but you have 7 bridesmaids instead of the 5 that are included in the package, what should you do????

Like we've said before 'floral recipes' are not an exact science. As florists, we create recipes for every event to ensure we order the proper amount, but we also know there's wiggle room.

Reasons for wiggle room:
  • Flowers are sold in bunches, and so counts are rounded up. For example, if a recipe calls for 15 stems ranunculus you will need 2 bunches which is 20 stems. See how it's rounded up?
  • Greenery bunch sizes can be larger than normal, giving excess.
  • The roses can open to be HUGE. Therefore, we may only use 7 stems as opposed to the 12 stems we originally calculated.
  • The ranunculus can be smaller than expected so it's a good thing we rounded up on our calculations.

So, if you find yourself in the situation where you need 1-3 extras just add on a bunch of greens and 1-2 bunches of your favorite blooms. Yes, your final 'recipe count' will be a bit different, but the bouquets/centerpieces will still be gorgeous and nothing will be amiss!

Example:
4-5 Bright and Cheerful Bridesmaid Bouquet: 3-5 Free Spirit Roses, 2-3 Bright Medium Pink Spray Roses, 2-3 Orange ranunculus, 2-3 Pale Yellow Stock, 1-2 Coral Spray Roses, 1-2 Light Pink Ranunculus, 1-2 stems Thistle, sprigs of Variegated Pittosporum and Seeded Eucalyptus per bouquet.

***Client needs 7 bouquets so she adds on 1 bunch of Pittosporum, 1 pink ranunculus, 1 coral spray rose

New Recipe for 7 Bright and Cheerful Bridesmaid Bouquet: 3 Free Spirit Roses, 1-2 Bright Medium Pink Spray Roses, 1-2 Orange ranunculus, 1-2 Pale Yellow Stock, 3-4 Coral Spray Roses, 3-4 Light Pink Ranunculus, 1-2 stems Thistle, sprigs of Variegated Pittosporum and Seeded Eucalyptus per bouquet.

If you need 3 or more bouquets or centerpieces than what is in our package we suggest adding on 1 bunch of each item that's in the original recipe.

Original 4-5 Bright and Cheerful Bridesmaid Bouquet: 3-5 Free Spirit Roses, 2-3 Bright Medium Pink Spray Roses, 2-3 Orange ranunculus, 2-3 Pale Yellow Stock, 1-2 Coral Spray Roses, 1-2 Light Pink Ranunculus, 1-2 stems Thistle, sprigs of Variegated Pittosporum and Seeded Eucalyptus per bouquet.

***Client needs 8-10 bouquets so she adds on 1 Free Spirit, 1 Medium pink spray rose, 1 orange ranunculus, 1 pale yellow stock, 1 coral spray roses, 1 pink ranunculus, 1 thistle, and 1 bunch of each green.
