Where are you all getting your flowers from?
We only need wedding party flowers (centerpieces are provided by the venue) and I am looking to spend as little as possible without having to make them myself. I had asked my mother and sister to help me make them since they have done them before but since they are coming from out of state they want to pay someone to make them instead. That said, I don’t want to ask them to pay a lot. The wedding party is medium sized (bridal bouquet, 6 bridesmaids bouquets, grooms flowers, 4 groomsmen’s flowers, parents and flower girl, ringbearer).
I contacted the florist recommended by the venue and their prices start at $1500. I’m hoping to spend closer to $500. Is that even possible? I’m not too picky about what makes up the flowers- seasonal/local is fine by me.
Just not sure where to start. The wedding is in Schaumburg and I know i will probably have more luck with lower prices in the suburbs.
Thanks in advance.
