I lucked out with Carlos, my wedding decorator/ florist, who is one of Mami Boa's best friends best friends.He did the decorations for both of my cousin's quinceañeros (We will be reusing the glass vases from one of these) a couple of proms at their school. Since he has become a friend of the family and knows I'm on a tiny budget, he quoted me a fixed price for his labor and
offered us all the materials, linens and flowers at cost. This made it possible for us to outsource
all the decorating to him and avoid some crazy intense DIY projects.

Thankfully, awesome wedding decorator had the same idea for centerpieces and he recommended we use white hydrangeas and roses on top of a tall square glass vase topped with curly willow. Clean, Modern and inexpensive if we only use a couple of hydrangea blooms per arrangement.
For the bouquets, he thought of adding a pop of color and dimension against my white dress by using lavender hued hydrangeas and some white calla lilies, while Lil Boa would have a small all-white rose bouquet.
