My wedding budget got slashed…we no longer have the $2750 budget for florals that I had anticipated. I want simple florals and yet every florist I have spoken with has quoted us $200 for just mine….
Any really affordable florists to recommend?

A lot of bees have had success with Sam’s Club bridal flower deliveries. They have a nice variety and are very budget friendly. DIY is also a good option, there are many sites for buying bulk flowers, but I think it only make sense if you have the time and really want to put them together yourself. And as a completely different option, have you considered non-flower centerpieces? Many bees have done candle centerpieces for example. Maybe if you could post more details on your theme/color, etc, other bees can chime in with more helpful ideas?

You could look into Bella Foral Design (Westwood) or Tangled Web (Pembroke). Both are highly recommended, but are in the Boston suburbs. I got quotes from both (plus another in RI) and the bridal bouquet quote were $145 & $160. Both seem to be willing to work with any size budget. I choose to go with Bella.

We used A Whole Bunch Flower Market (Burlington) – the bride’s bouquet was the most expensive item (can’t remember how much it was right now), but the centerpieces were only $40 each and Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets were $50 each, which made the overall expense much more affordable than other florists that I had researched.

This might be too late but I used Kelly at Beautiful Blooms in Medford http://www.beautifulbloomslive.com/default.html Kelly was awesome to work with and quoted us half the price of other florists.

Have you thought about going to Whole Foods/Trader Joe’s for flowers and making your own bouquets?

Having received both Wholefood’s and Trader Joe’s flowers recently, I would recommend Trader Joes (Brookline). I use to provide wedding flowers by referral prior to having my kids. Let me know if you have any questions. I have a fairly new facebook page. (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Celebration-Flowers-By-Suzanne/190056031006135) Please feel free to visit and provide feedback as I add pictures of my work. Congrats and good luck with your wedding planning!

Yep, $175 is about average for a bridal bouquet. I like the other suggestions here (costco is alwas great), but did you check out Last Minute Wed? We spoke to a few florists there and the pricing was really reasonable.
