@Skittles131:  ask how many garden roses vs. carnations you’d be getting. Carnations are really cheap ~$0.40 stem, roses ~$1 stem, and garden roses ~$3 stem retail. So if your getting only 2 garden roses, a dozen regular and the rest carnation then $70 I would consider high For the bridal bouquet.

That sounds amazing.  I thought I had an amazing deal at 700, and that didn’t include table centerpieces (though it did include large floral pieces for the church)

These seem extremely low to me. My bouquet alone was $250 (although it was all peonies) and the BM bouquets were $75. I am unfamiliar with prices in your region of the country but definitely seems like a good deal.

That’s a GREAT deal. I have fewer guests than you and I went professional florist route (flowers were important to me) and for 1 bride’s bouquet, 1 boutonniere, and 10 centerpieces I’m $1000. Granted I also have some more exotic flowers

Good deal! I got my flowers from whole foods, too. They were awesome.

@Skittles131:  I’ve heard whole foods has pretty good deals on their flowers, and the quote seems fairly reasonable.  However, my entire flower budget was around $300 (including ceremony decor), so I’m pretty stingy when it comes to flowers lol.
