@jadealexaellis: Okay, I am OCD about budgeting, so I have a very exact breakdown of the flower costs. That’s how I knew when I priced out all my other options (high and low carnation DIYs, high and low baby’s breath DIYs), that this was going to save me a bunch.
Here’s the breakdown, including shipping costs – let me know if you need more detail:
Supplies (Wire, Tape, Ribbon, Pins, some wire/floral cutters): $23.83
Cake Topper Flowers: $6.20
GM/Dad/FI Bouts: 6 @ $1.67 each
Mom/Grandma Corsages: 5 @ $6.80 each (included the “pearl” wristlet)
Bridesmaid’s Bouquets: 3 @ $12.41 each
My Bouquet: 1 @ $22.74
Centerpieces: 20 @ $29.50 each (had to buy some extra supplies because they came in bulk – this includes flowers, vases, mirrors, LED lights, gems, candles, sinker weights, everything)
Head Table Decor (Silk flower petals plus LOTS of votive candles – ordered 72 and will use any extras on other tables like the buffet/bar/lounge area): $20.98 for the flower petals, $47.98 for the 72 votives
Total for all flowers and centerpieces/decor came to right around $800. Most of that expense was centerpieces/decor. Without the centerpieces and head table though, just for wedding party flowers, it was around $110 including supplies.
