M&S has become the UK’s first major retailer to start selling wedding flowers, which is great for couples on a budget.
Prices start at £125 for the simplest collection, which includes a bridal bouquet and two bridesmaid bouquets. The most expensive collection (which is still very reasonable) comes in at £340. It includes a bridal bouquet, two bridesmaid bouquets, four buttonholes, two table arrangements and a vase arrangement. We call that a deal.
The news gets even better. If you’re in a rush, you don’t need to panic. Your choice of flowers can be ordered online up to 21 days before the big event.
There are currently three collections, ranging from traditional roses to bright calla lilies. If the venture is a success, M&S will add further designs to the range. M&S flowers expert Simon Richards commented: “While some brides will always want to design their wedding bouquets themselves, we wanted to create an option for those happy to let someone do all the work for them. Our collections cater for both the classic and contemporary wedding and brides have the option of adding extra arrangements or bouquets to their order too.”
So, you can pick up your wedding cake, stationery and flowers from M&S. We’re expecting budget bridal dresses next.
