Now that it's 2017 and brides-to-be are getting serious about their upcoming weddings, tough decisions need to be made.

Let's face it, flowers are expensive but what other options are there? Is the dream wedding complete with fake flowers? For most, in my experience, the answer to that question is no. Real flowers are the way to go especially since Kukka has made it incredibly easy to do your own arrangements.
By using Kukka, you can pick out a wedding flower package or create a custom package. If you select a wedding package, most of the work is done.

You receive the stems and arrange according to the instructions. 2-3 hours of work for $2,000 in savings? I definitely value my time, but not always by that much.
