    I went to my local grocery store. For peonies, Ranunculus, and roses (the first two are not cheap flowers) she estimated 50-60 for mine, and 35 for my bridesmaids. I get that florists might make them SLIGHTLY prettier, but man, grocery store, do it!

    Until a friend of ours stepped up to make our bouquets from flowers bought from the farmer’s market, I was thisclose to just grabbing some bouquets from the nearest supermarket store, then trimming and wrapping the stems myself (the night before the wedding).  I think it would’ve worked.

    My bouquet was under $100 (I think $85?) and was composed of hydrangeas and roses. Simple and beautiful!

    This is a picture of a bouquet I showed my florist to give her an idea of what I was looking for. My bouquet is costing $250. yikes.

    I don’t know how much my flowers will cost, but we will not be forking over tons – our budget is tiny! I’m hoping that my taste for small, filler wildflowers and lots of greens will help out. Roses are very expensive, I understand, but I don’t really like them anyway. 🙂

    Also, a family friend is doing them for us based off inspiration pics I’m giving her. I’m not giving her super strict guidelines, and she’s a florist by hobby only, but the way she arranges things is exactly the look I love so I’m not worried. That’ll help bring the price down, I think!

    Bridal bouquets are such a racket. That’s why I’m making my own fabric flower one. If  you want fresh flowers though, I’ve heard of other brides using services like 1800flowers.com, still expensive, but you can get arrangements for more like $50-ish.

    That sounds like pretty normal pricing unfortunately.

    I’m so grateful I found my florist – she’s mostly retired, but she gets her materials wholesale and has no overhead because she works out of her house. My bouquet was beautiful and it was $75 – for mine, six Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, ten bouts/corsages, a huge altar arrangement, two pomanders for FGs, and 20 something table arrangements we paid $1200 flat. I would not have paid regular prices for florals – totally would have DIY’d it!
