You should be asking this question to a florist in your area. Prices vary wildly by locale. Give a few a call and tell them what you wrote here. After you get answers, then talk to the one you are most comfortable with/can afford and get it all in writing.

I agree with above. It depends on your local and what your florist does. I spent several thousands for roses and similar flowers (no peonies or anything crazy). If you are hoping for a cheapwe option work with something like whole foods florist department or another grocery store.

It depends on your florist suppliers, how full and dramatic you want your bouqets, etc.  I have roses in my bouquet, my bridesmaids bouquets, and centerpieces  along with other flowers, greens, and berries for filler and our bill is $1300.  You’re best off going and meeting with some florists to see if what you want is attainable.

If it’s monochromatic bouquets, they are pretty easy to make, esp with a lower budget. White and red roses are very cheap and good quality from Sam’s club! They also have HUGE bags of flower petals ~$80!

babybearinhipss:  check fiftyflowers.com – they have solid colored rose packages for a great price plus you can get petals in 3000 or 6000 quantities. Order them to arrive a few days before the wedding so they bloom and you’ll be able to stretch your budget

I did 12 roses in my bouquet and 6 for each bridesmaid and it was the perfect sizes. I used silver dollar eucalyptus as filler and it worked out well! The grocery store charged me 40 for my bouquet and 16 each for my bridesmaids. Very affordable!

Check out Costco, they have 100 roses for around $70. I made my own bouquet,  4 bridesmaid bouquets, 3 corsages, 9 centerpieces, and aisle decorations using assorted Costco flowers for about $500, not including vases and supplies. You just order online and they deliver to your house
