I know that you can order the vases and glass pebbles for the bottom wholesale from the dollar store. My cousin did that and had a florist use them. It cut down on a lot of $.

Make sure you have A LOT of help. Make sure they are not only willing, but able. We did partial flowers for my wedding (9 arrangements, toss bouquet, 10 bouts, and 4 smaller bouquets) and then also had a florist do the rest (15 centerpieces, bridal bouquet, and 4 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets) We had some help from the fam, but they were a little clueless on what to do with flowers even with direction. It ended up being just my mom and me doing 90% of the flowers, and it was HARD. I only slept for 3-4 hours per night the 2 nights before my wedding. If you still want to do it, keep it really simple.

But to answer your question, hydrangeas, stock, snap dragons and silver dollar eucalyptus would go very well with your flowers. Good luck!
