In the Philippines, when getting married in a Catholic church you have to pay for the church fee which includes a musician (pianist) or a singer or both if you're lucky and the flowers to be used during the matrimonial ceremony. While others have a separate fee for flower arrangements just like the case in St. James the Great Parish in Ayala, Alabang.
I mentioned on my past post that St. James have an in-house florist (The Mother Butler Guild) who will provide the flower arrangements for the wedding ceremony. They have different packages to suit your taste and the price ranges from Php 15,000 to Php 35,000. Wow!
So let's do a breakdown of the flower packages that The Mother Butler Guild (St. James the Great Parish) is offering. For this post, I will feature the Traditional Package:
#1 Traditional Package (Php 15,000)
- 2 big arrangements at the altar
- 2 big arrangements at the reredo (or retablo, behind the altar where the beautiful images and the tabernacle are located)
- 6 big arrangements on pedestals along the aisle
- 2 small arrangements for the sponsor candles
- 2 pcs. sponsor candles
Flowers used: White mums, asters, and tube roses
Accessories: white tulle

On my next post, I will feature the Classic Package which is an upgrade from the Standard Package. I have to make a separate entry to the Classic Package since it is more flexible when it comes to the type of flowers to be use and the arrangement. In short, there are different variations to choose from.
