    I’m doing parasols for the BM’s instead of bouquets.  The parasols are about $7;8 with shipping and totally fit with their dresses (which I got from Mod Cloth).  I’m doing a bouquet for me though.  An option to save money is a wildflower bouquet, which I think is gorgeous!!

    Costco and Sam’s Club have some bulk flowers that, if you have family helping you out, could make beautiful bouquets yourself.  I priced out the bulk DIY way and actually had a florist that came really close to my budget (this was after I was rejected by 3 florists for not meeting their $2,500 minimum). I ended up going with the florist that was really open-minded, just a couple hundred over initial budget, for the sake of less stress.

    I did however, attend a wedding that had silk flower bouquets… and I could not tell at all! It was only because the bride told me.

    Best of luck on your decision!

    I’m planning on doing a boquet for myself with different flowers that I like (hydrangeas, peonies, etc.) and my bridesmaids are going to have pretty simple boquets, at first I was thinking babies breath, but now I’m leaning towards lavender and something else. There are cheap options out there for great looking flowres!
