@sfchick: ouch! Yeah, there is no way around that if you are going through a florist. I have no advice. Right now I’m hunting down real touch peonies. ^_^

Maybe you can order wholesale?

what if instead of floral bouquets, you embraced the fact that it is mother’s day and put framed photos up of the most important mothers to you?  or a bunch of photos of your mothers with you as babies, your mothers with your siblings as babies, your grandmothers with your parents as babies, etc…

My wedding is also Mother’s Day weekend (Friday, 5/6).  I know our florist mentioned the holiday and that it was a busy weekend, but she never said anything about it costing more.  If I were you, I’d keep looking into florists and see if you can find one that you can say “this is our spending cap, and this is what I want” and they’ll accomodate you.  It’s not like flowers are naturally more expensive that time of year–it’s Springtime, they should be cheaper because everything is in bloom!
