    I think it depends what area you live in and what flowers you want. I am getting married in a small town in a rural area and was quoted $640 for 2 bouquets, 7 corsages, 8 bouts, 2 altar arrangements and reception flowers for 18 tables. This is my bouquet inspiration so you get an idea of the type of flowers we are using.

    I got 5 bouquets, 5 groomsman/groom bouts, 6 corsages, and 5 dad/grandparent bouts for $200. I went with artificial flowers and a friend arranged them. They look amazing! We are doing candles for centerpieces!

    Reception flowers are included in my venue’s package, so I’m DIYing the rest. Plan to spend ca 300 on armfuls of flowers at the flower market, to make:

    My bouquet, 4 bm bouquets, one mum’s gift bouquet, one arrangement for my mum’s grave, 2 large arrangements for the church, and about a dozen boutonnieres.

    To save costs, the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets will be either tulips or carnations. I’m going with roses and peonies for mine. Bouts will be roses, with an orchid for Fiance. All others then a generous mix of tulips, roses, carnations, sweet peas and freesias. Banana leaves to wrap some, and maybe some jasmine and a few bits and pieces.

    I’ve priced most of this at supermarket prices, so the market will be that or lower.

     

    ETA: Sorry should have clarified that: that’s 300 euro, so ca $430/450, I think.

    I got my bouquet, 2 bridesmaids bouquets, 5 bouts, and 4 coursages for $300.

    We did DIY centerpieces, I think we spent around $400 for those and random flower arrangements on the gift table, ect.  Here’s a pic of my bridesmaid putting together the centerpieces.

    $300, but I am ONLY doing bouquets, bouts, and corsages. All decor will be non-floral. 

    ETA: I don’t know exactly what the flowers will be either… I didn’t really care so I told my mom I was fine with whatever and she is taking care of this. I think there was talk of calla lilies and hydrangea?

    I think everybody’s getting sick of looking at my flowers, so I won’t post pics but we spent about $450.

    All in all, we spent about $300. This included three boquets, six corsages and seven bouts, 10 (huge) potted mums and two arrangements. We had an outdoor ceremony in the fall, so we used a lot of the natural elements around us. The flowers were ordered from a local grocery store and a talented cousin put them together.

    I set my budget at $1000, but I’m at $450.29 right now so I think I’m doing pretty good! That’s for garden roses, dyed baby’s breath, and tulips.
