Would you share with me what you spent on the flowers for your wedding? I’m really not looking for the fanciest of fancies…. but I can’t seem to get a grip on an average price for this stuff! Any florist recommendations, especially inexpensive yet delightful florists? Any wholesale floral finds?
I’m dreaming of poppies and curly willow with lavender…. sigh.

I’m going with Costco who makes all the bouquets, bouts, corsages, centerpieces — no fuss!
Also, I’m getting additional flowers from Grower’s Direct florists. They sell flowers at AMAZING prices (cheaper than online wholesale!).
Are you in the LA or OC area? They have locations in both.

I am going with Bebuds Florist because they frequent my venue every week. I guess they are THAT good that brides ask for them at that venue! My wedding is in Palos Verdes and I’m spending a little over 2k for flowers. It’s the centerpieces that are expensive! They are throwing in free flowers for the sweetheart table, down the aisle and for the cake.
A friend of mine went with Commerce Flowers, a guy by the name of Eddie. It’s like a family business and heard they were really good. I didn’t choose them because they are pretty far from my venue and I am having a morning/early afternoon party.
I think you can’t really go wrong with vendors for flowers…the flowers are always pretty nice!

I’ve posted before about this lady, but she works out of her home and thus is really cheap. Note that I am only using roses, but for 1 bride bouquet, 3 bridesmaid bouquets, 1 groom bout, 3 groomsmen bout, 2 corsages for moms, 2 bouts for dads and 30 bouts for family members it came out to about $250. I am also having her make two large arrangments that will sit on columns that she is letting me use for $100/each. I am making my own centerpieces so I’m not sure how much she charges for those.
Her name is Lillian and the company is LKD flowers. http://www.lkdflowers.com/
In the "Special Packages" link you will see the $200 package I got. Mine came out to $250 because I had to add 2 bridesmaid and 2 groomsmen flowers since the package only comes w/1 of each and some more bouts for family. If you do give her a call, let her know Elaine referred you. Good luck.

We spend just under $2k from a floriest in the SF Valley. It included: 12 bouts, 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, my bouquet, 4 bags of pedals, 16 centerpieces for reception (tall big ones), 2 centerpieces for church, and centerpiece for the sweetheart table. Oh, flowers for the aisles and a floor runner for the church.
You can go to my profile for the link to see it all. Hope that helps.
