Ladies, I was hoping you might be able to come to my rescue..!! I'm at my wits end looking for a florist! I'm getting married in the Heritage, Killenard next January and am looking for a reasonably priced florist with lots of ideas to give me some inspiration!! Anyone I have contacted so far is quoting up to €2k for church flowers only!! Is it just me or is that crazy?!! :eek Can anybody recommend someone in the Laois/Kildare area who could come to my rescue O:|

hey, i got this number of another wollie and the lady came out to me last week to see my dresses, match colors, went through everything and asked us what exactly we wanted or didnt. She showed me the best type of shape of bouquet for my dresses and how to compliment mine of the bridesmaid dresses. also offered to add loads of little touches like pearls and diamantes to the bouquets to match in with my dress. We told her our budget of hopefully max 1000 and she said that shouldnt be a problem. am getting 3BMs bouquets, my one, 12 button holes(and she was able to show me how to dress up the grooms one especially), 1corsage for baby flowergirl and 1 flowergirl basket full with arrangement, 2 MOB bouquets, 8 pew end bunches, 2 very large flower stands for either edge of the alter, 2 smaller arrangements for the alter and the unity candle stand. THink that was all we asked for but she did offer more. so I thought that was a great deal. the exact quote should be arriving in the post this morning but under 1000 anyway, so i thought that was very good. Her name is Eileen, she is in leixlip and her number is 0864041572

Just wanted to add I cant recommend Eileen enough, I have given her number to loads of girls and they have all been delighted with her. She is a pet to deal with.
