@mrsjordan53014:  We have spent less than $20 per centerpiece.  Here is my inspiration:

I am DIYing using Sam’s Club roses in place of the mums and hydrangea.

Total cost for flowers was $105 for 125 stems.  I am using them to make 10 centerpieces, 1 bridal bouquet, and 3 bridesmaid bouquets.  I am skipping bouts and corsages for the guys and parents to save money.

@mrsjordan53014:  I had 17 centerpieces. I had 8 boutineres, 3 corsages, 5 bouquets, a dais arrangement for our sweetheart table, and 2 baskets for the church. 

Here are some pics for our flowers

1st pic is the boutineres for the guys (white roses)

 

2nd pic is my MOH bouquet – the other BM’s had everything except the white roses

3rd pic is my bouqet- cascading ( i love it)

4th Pic- our centerpieces! They have little candles going up the spiral 

5th pic is our sweetheart table and the floral arrangement. It was very romantic

 

All together, we paid $2800 which was quite low for where we live. This was the best price we found for everything that we wanted. We paid $125 per centerpiece. I don’t remember the breakdown of all the bouquets, but I believe they were around $45, and mine was $65. The boutineres and corsages were less than $10, and the basket for the church i think were around $100.

We got my bouquet, 5 BM bouquets, 3 nosegays, 2 corsages, 7 bouts, 2 huge ceremony flowers (almost 3 feet tall), and 12 centerpieces for just under $1800.  For reference I’m in western NY.  My pro pics aren’t back yet and there aren’t any great guest photos of the flowers.  My centerpieces were low and to give the overall look some height I had taller stands for my table numbers.  My tables were named after buildings at our alma mater (where we met, got engaged, and got married) so in addition to the table number and building name there was a printed black and white picture of the building.

I DIY’d our centerpieces. Collected wine bottles, took the labels off and spray painted them and then we got the black twigs/flowers at Ikea. Flowers were so expensive so we settled for doing it our own way 🙂

Here are ours.  We went to a local flower shop and rented the vases with the flowers.  For 26 centerpieces, my bouquet, a throw away bouquet, 4 bridesmaids bouqets, 5 boutineres, and all the petals for the ceremony, we paid around $2,200. Flowers are a give and take and it all depends on your vision.  Personally, I love fresh flowers so I was willing to cough up the change for it but if you’re in a tight budget, you can easily just get flowers and buy your own vases somewhere cheap.  I just didn’t want to have 26 of those babies laying around my house after.
