We spent $460. $416 included one bride bouquet, three bridesmaids, 7 bouts, and two corsages. The other $48 was for centerpieces. We bought white hydrangeas from a local grocery store, and used 2 stems per jar and it looked so perfect!

We ordered realtouch flowers from “LoveFlowers” in Australia! They are gorgeous and we only spent $500 and now we can sell them afterward 🙂

We will have oodles and oodles of flowers, probably for less than $500.
Ceremony: in a park so we only need bouquets. Buying flowers from a wholesaler, and a friend is making the bouquets.
Reception: we will have neutral coloured fillers from my garden and Future Mother-In-Law garden (we don’t have large gardens, but between us already have a nice range of wildflowers), and will buy accent flowers in our colour scheme from the wholesale store. We’re using a range of flower types, and generally whatever is in season in the colours we want so its really affordable, compared to using only roses or peonies (I only recently discovered what a peony is!). Making vases out of wine bottles to show them off for free 🙂

I spent about $400, but we had a very small wedding with no bridal party. The florist did a fantastic job with that budget.
My bouquet was beautiful, we had flowers on pedastels at the altar, heavy on the mums because they’re cheap. My centerpieces were gorgeous martini glasses with a beautiful orchid in each one– our theme was old Palm Prings. The glasses came from ebay. My bouquet was put into service as the flower arrangement at our table after the ceremony in a beautiful vase, also from ebay, originally from Belarus– real crystal.
So it worked fine for us.

I got a quote for about 500 on my flowers and that includes all the bouquets, boutineers, altar flowers and reception decor flowers. All my pew flowers for the church and centerpiece flowers are all going to be fake so that saves me some money. My friend who got married did the same thign and honestly she said it’s the best way to save money because half the people didn’t even know her centerpiece flwoers were fake!

@gromble: Spent 500. But that is also because my husbands cousin did them for us – so we only paid the wholesale cost of the flowers.

I LOVE those asian boxes with the pretty floral print that are holding the flowers on your arch. Where did you get them?

My mom ordered them from somewhere like fifty flowers and arranged them for us. They were about $850

I’m getting my flowers from sams club as well.. they have packages that include all the bouquets & corsages for a very affordable price.. then we’ll just order bulk roses as make our own centerpieces.
The package I am looking at is like $275, and then the bulk roses are around $100 or maybe a little cheaper.
