Have you spoken to the professional florist to see what you options are to bring the price down. The reason I say that is because I love orchids but they were out of my price range but she showed me so many other types of orchids that I didn’t even know existed and I was able to do something I love and at a price that I could afford.

i think like you said, it depends on how much you care about your flowers. that was a big priority for me. i wanted a garden wedding but couldn’t find an affordable location so i dealt with it by adding my own flowers to the space. i also couldn’t afford a florist so i did diy, and it turned out beautiful.

So what we did was order flowers online but get the corsages and bouts done by the pros. 

Honestly, the bouquet were really easy to do and it felt really relaxing.  I’m kinda glad we DIY because people or at least my friends seemed to love flowers, even the non artsy ones so it was fun taking a bit of time and everyone doing a BM bouquet.  Sure, they weren’t exactly matchy matchy but I was really happy with how everything turned out and it was a good time.

Have you gone to a florist in a big box store ex. costco.

They have proper florists and cheaper prices because they have less overhead.

I am getting an all calla lilly wedding (usually costing 2500) for 1100 by going with our local grocery store!

Do you want real flowers, or are you willing to go with “fake” (natural touch)- we are going with natural touch and they worked out much cheaper than paying for real ones (I ordered a sample and even a friend that works as a florist couldn’t tell they were fake until she picked it up).
