    Hi!! I’m calculating this too. I just found a great post about this, and the consensus was: (based on a regular rosé…)

    24 for bridal bouquet

    18 for bridesmaids bouquets 

    2-3 for corsages

    1 for boutineers

    centerpieces it totally depends on the flowers, vase, type of table, ect!

    @violetandlotus:  ?  i think this is about how many flowers you used, not how much it cost

    how many stems you use will depend on the size of the blooms. For example, bigger flowers (like in season hydrangeas, peonies, or garden roses) will require less – probably only 10 for a really good sized bouquet. If you’re using smaller flowers, like ranunculous or traitional roses, you’ll need more.

    For me it was 20 roses + a bit of greenery

     

    15 per bridesmaids bouquet (3 bridesmaids)

     

    4 boutineers

     

    I bought my flowers at our local Farmer’s Market for $1.25 each which costs about: $100 for everything
