    but I’m DIYing the flowers… My bridal party is WAY smaller than you… 2 BMs, 2 GMs, 8 center pieces and my bouquet… I’m getting it all done for 300$

    I think that’s totally realistic.

    My parents are taking care of our flowers, and they set aside $2500 in the budget for florist expenses, but I think they’re being really generous.

    I’m not sure… I kind of want to DIY my bouquets, and maybe do non-floral centerpieces.  But I think I need to get some quotes and see what they look like.

    I am DIY-ing all the flowers since I didn’t want to pay super marked up prices for a florist! I got all flowers for boquets, bouts, corsages, and centerpieces for $725 through growersbox.com

    @MrsRedPumps:  Ahh!! I was around budget on most, went over on dress but the most on floral. I had cut it down to $2900, but after I did my mock up I said F it, what’s a little more when I am already spending soo much. Butknow I have the look I love,but it’s still not a ton of floral, I am even doing 6 high centerpieces of baby’s breath to save. I am no help.

    I think we’re at about $4Kish for flowers, but I think that’s fair for what we’re getting/location/type of flowers.

    Less than 10k, but it includes a decor for 3 locations as well as aisle runner, chair covers, cupcake display, ceremony decor/ rental…reception decor/ rental… and all linens.  My awesome flower decorator is also a day of planner….among helping me with a ton of other ideas….best part is that I totally trust her.  Great style and taste!

    I’m at 950 for 5 bridesmaids, 1 bride, 11 bouts, 7 corsages, 2 big ceremony arrangements, 2 big bags of rose petals for my outdoor wedding aisle, 6 tall centerpeices and 4 short ones (rest are just glass and candles).  But, my first quote from a different florist was 1900, for the same amount or a little less.

    Im spending 8000, but that includes the candle holders… I am having 4 tall, 4 short arrangements, then I have flowers for my ceremony that will double as a table runner. I have one of the premier florists though. I have gotten quotes from other places too and they were all around the same amount for what I want.  I am in So Cal, so everything cost so much more…
