Between those two, carnations are cheaper and more hardy.  Freesias “bruise” easily, and their stems aren’t very solid, so they bend/droop quickly, especially if it’s hot.

My first choice for my flowers was carnation pomanders, exactley like the picture you have above. Carnations are pretty dang cheap, but they are still flowers which still makes them pricey. Before I chnaged to a more colorful look for my wedding and my flwoers, my caterer (who is doing food, flowers, and cake) said that they would be around $15-$25 each depending on the size. So I don’t know if that helps?

It also depends on where you live, as each month there are flowers in season in one part of the country that are not in season in another part of the country.

Speak to a couple of florists in your area and ask them what the most cost effective flowers will be for you in June and ask to see some pics using those flowers.

Have you looked at the pre-made wedding bouquet packages offered by Sam’s Club, BJ’s or Costco? If you’re flexible on the types of flowers you use, you can find some very inexpensive options, and they arrive already made into bouquets/bouts/corsages/centerpieces/etc. FiftyFlowers.com is another option – a bit more expensive, but they have a broader selection of flowers and more flexibility in the items that are included in the package.

My cousin did all baby’s breath bouquets and they were so pretty! Very delicate and lovely. If you aren’t have any flowers excpet for the bouquets, baby’s breath would be a great way to go. They are pretty inexpensive and they look VERY cool. My vote goes for those!

I second JM… they look so sweet and feminine! Thrown in a carnation or 3 and I bet it would be close to your budget! 😉 Plus, who feels guilty tossing out Baby’s Breath???

@GeekChic: Love the sentimental factor!

FWIW, Freesia also has a VERY strong smell, so if any of your girls have allergies, etc – It would be best not to use it!
