maybe you could do a diy bout ffrom the garden for those that may feel left out, or do the ones from hobby lobby w/a 50% off coupon? we are eliminating all flowers for our family too. they will live and so far, no one is offended, but our wedding is a little more low key and non traditional

I dont think that they would be offended!  Save your money!

I do think that approximately $22/each (~$260/12)  is a little on the steep side for corsages and boutineers.  Have you asked if there was a way to lower the price?  Maybe carnations instead of roses?

How about non-flowers for corsages and boutineers?  You could do a nice “pearl” bracelets for the moms and grandmas.

Fiftyflowers.com offers corsage and boutineer packs in a lot of colors.  You could get 16  rose boutineers/corsages (combo pack) for only $159.99 – http://www.fiftyflowers.com/flowers/WeddingFlowersBoutonnieresandCorsages_471.htm

Hi, girls! I am also currently planning my September wedding and have spent days trying to figure out a way to deal with flower arrangements. A friend of mine recommended Flowerbasket . They are affordable, prompt and easy to cooperate with. Maybe you should check them out, too.After you contact these guys, I honestly don’t think you will need to cut back on your flower budget at all. Best of luck!

@Christy42213:  Could you try doing fake flowers for the family or feathers or just something for them?

I got all silk flowers for my “Wear and Carry” and when I showed it to my grandmother she was really happy and wanted to keep it that day so for her its more of having a memento to keep in her apartment after the wedding.

I ordered from Tammy at SilkBridals and she did a great job, all my “wear and carry” totaled 201 + shipping and if you just wanted boutineers and corsages it’d be pretty cheap from her (and shipping to the USA is much cheaper, mine was $32 shipping to canada) could be something to consider? Here’s the link to her shop… http://www.etsy.com/shop/SilkBridals

To save money we are cutting the flower centrepieces. We can hire candelabras for half the price with candles and a mirror tile to stand on.
