We’re paying $ 1,200 for my bridal bouquet, 6 BM bouquets, 5 corsages, 11 bouteniers, toss bouquet, and 2 large alter displays Including delivery. It really depends on the types of flowers you want. Here’s my boquet and BM bouquet inspiration

@brittanyandjoe:  we originally budgeted 5,000 but only ended up needing to spend 3,000.

ceremony: shepherds hooks with hanging flower vases lining the aisle and a chuppah decorated wit’s flowers. 5 bridesmaid bouquets, 7 MOG/MON grandma, 10 boutineers 1 bridal bouquet. Flower crown for bride and flower girl. 

Reception: 8 tables wirh trees with tea light, crystals, and flowers (has a moss base) as centerpieces . Then 8 tables with lower center pieces full flower arrangements with 

my must have flower was peonies. Other than that I gave the florist free reign to create arrangements with different textures and colors. I’m going for an enchanted Forrest feel (my venue is a historic bed and breakfast with a catering hall- which looks like a little cottage). She’s very talented and i saw several pictures of her work with the exact look and feel that I wanted. I feel because she has a lot of choice that it helps keep the cost lower. 

The picture is just some things she threw together. I have been to bridal showcases and her work is usually more elaborate. But when I said I want it to have a “wild flower” enchanted feel and stressed “not roses” she really understood.

@brittanyandjoe:  I ended up using silk flowers and had a vendor I met through another forum arrange them for me. They were awesome.
However, in Seattle, I recommend Ravenna Blooms. I had a consultation with her before changing my budget and she was fantastic.

Paid under $700.  1 huge bouquet, MOH bouquet, 3 coursages, 6 bouts, 12 tall CP, 4 (I think?) short CP, petals.  Cake florals.  I didn’t want to spend much on flowers but I got so much more than I ever expected.

@BrandNewBride:  where did you purchase your flowers from? I am thinking of DIY my flowers!

@Jas00:  Wegman’s! But I think any gorcery store with a big floral department would work. And I’ve heard awesome things about Sam’s Club roses, too, though some people have said they’re not de-thorned.
