Purchase synthetic flowers instead of the natural ones. Synthetic flowers may cost a bit more when you buy them in bulk, but they could save your money as they last longer than the natural ones. Here is how it will be worthy to buy the synthetic ones; when you buy the natural flowers for flower girls, bridesmaids, as well as for yourself, they tend to whither rather quickly, more so in case of indoor weddings. As a result, you may end up buying more fresh flowers. One more advantage of buying synthetic flowers is, you can chose any petal color, any bloom shape as per your preferences and thus giving you more freedom in planning the decoration at your wedding.
The judging of the designers work is extremely subjective. Each person that sees the design will make their judgement based upon personal preferences for design styles and flower choices. There is no set of common criteria used in making decisions about whether a person likes or dislikes a floral arrangement. In fact, there is not a standard criteria list which is used by everyone. To further convolute matters, judging actually comes from more than just one or two people _ they come from the recipient, the customer who placed the order, and third party observers (anyone else who sees the arrangement). Therefore it is virtually impossible to please everyone with each design that is created.
