Well, I can’t offer much help, but I know for my maids bouquets, they are all having 20-25 roses, and sams club’s website sells like 100 for $78

I’m doing the same thing and using different colored roses. I am doing about 15 roses for my bridesmaids bouquets and about 25 for mine. I did purchase some roses from the local grocery store just to play with and see how many I liked for each piece. I’m then ordering from Gammaflowers.com. They are the cheapest I found with great reviews. I can give you a 5% discount code if you want too.

Anyways, I am doing 2 roses plus some foliage & pearls filler for each corsage and 1 rose for the boutennierres. I’m going to hang approx. 3-4 roses on every other chair in the aislway for the ceremony too.

Because the roses were so cheap, I’m ordering 300. This is a lot more than I need, but I figured I’d leave room for error.

I’m DIYing the flowers for our wedding and am ordering them from wholeblossoms.com and fiftyflowers.com (I used whole blossoms for my brothers wedding and ordered mini calla lilies. The quality was fantastic).

We decided on hydrangea (50 stems), orchids (6 stems), and roses (50 buds). Total cost is around $400. I know we will have more than enough flowers, but our wedding is a destinations for us (from PA, married in NC) and we don’t know the local flower seen to get extras. I’d rather have more than enough just in case. Plus with ordering online your kinda locked into the quanities they offer unless you want to pay more for less.
