@KayDeee:  Define small budget? I am using Forget me Knodt and my budget is 600.00. Flowers on Halsted was also willing to work within my budget.

Keep in mind that I only wanted my bouquet, 3 bridesmaid bouquets, 2 mom corsages and 4 mens bouts.

@KayDeee:  I would definitely call asap, May is a busy month! Good luck!

Would you be willing to pick up your flowers or drive a little bit to get them? There are probably places maybe an hour outside of downtown proper that would give you a much more reasonable deal on flowers!

@KayDeee:  I’ve heard good things about Ashland Addison – definitely check them out! We’re spending close to $5k on our flowers, and I think our florist does have a minimum that is in the $4k range which is unfortunate because I would definitely recommend him!!! Good luck!

The Bread  & Butterfly is a newer business and great! She does affordable floral designs and did my friends wedding this past fall. I’m not sure what they spent on it but I know they were on a budget. good luck!

@KayDeee:  Holy shit. I wonder why this is the case. I’m sorry this didn’t work out for you 🙁

@KayDeee:  I’ll cross my fingers for you! I always pass Flowers on Halsted whenever I get my hairdone and the shop looks so pretty.
FMK hasn’t been getting back to me lately, so maybe I’ll have to visit Flowers on Halsted too.

I LOVED my experience with Asrai Garden.  They even have a “manifesto” on their website about everyone deserving beautiful flowers, regardless of budget.  I had an even smaller amount to work with than you did, and they did a gorgeous job with our bouquets, bouts and corsages.  Here’s a pic of me and my ‘maids with our bouquets.
