Cheaper than $300? 

Maybe go to a local farmers market but that’d mean DIY.

You could order flowers online and make your own bouquets, etc.

We are considering going to the flower market and doing our own flowers to save money. My friend did the same thing for her wedding. That would be a lot cheaper than $300, and then they would be real and good quality. Obviously, that’s DIY, but if you have each bridesmaid assemble her own bouquet and a boutiniere, you would be finished in no time. I personally couldn’t justify paying more money for fake flowers.

coachhw:  Sam’s club and costco have wedding flower collections that you can order online. They are pretty inexpensive and have great reviews. They have different packages based on your individual needs, and many colors. This is an option that I’m considering because I don’t want to spend a lot or DIY. Check them out!

This is more for Canada, but if you live in an area with a large ethnic population, you can check out the middle eastern/east asian/south asian/etc.  neighnbourhoods for cheap florists.

Def check out costco and sam’s club’s collections.  You can probably get everything you need for about for that price or lower. http://www.costco.com/wedding-event-flowers.html 

Here’s a purple/pink/white collection for $199: Sweet Moments Wedding Collection

And a purple/pink/green for $245 http://www.samsclub.com/sams/wedding-collection-bright-10-pc/prod1480820.ip?navAction= 

 

You could also contact a local florist letting them know what you need and your budget and see if they could do anything within that.  Maybe wildflowers, baby’s breath, stock flowers, think inexpensive fillers. They can look pretty on their own!

Another idea is to go to a grocery store or farmer’s market and pick up flowers the day-of or day before and tie them together with a nice ribbon.

coachhw:  I would second Farmer’s market – Just get what is in season. I mean the whole DIY might be as simple as just tying a pretty ribbon on.

 

OR get the bridal bouquet online ( and get the rest something at the market?). So many times local supermarket has most amazing bouquets! I always stop and stare and wish I could just get one of them!

are these silk? They look like silk in the photos. If they aren’t silk this is a GREAT deal. so good I’d be worried about the quality.

coachhw:  If flowers are not important to you then don’t have them.  If you want a boquet that’s fine but men do NOT need to wear them.  And those ones shown look really bad.  It would be much nicer without those on the suits/tuxes.  You could save a lot of money.

coachhw:  That’s really rude of you and uncalled for.  You literally said “That’s all I care about” when you mentioned bridal bouquets.  I thought my suggestion of going without them after you said “I don’t care about flowers” was usefull.  If you didn’t think it was helpful fine but you don’t need to be insulting.
