    I ordered 14 bouts (groom, groomsmen, ushers,gpa, and fathers included), 7 bouquets ( bridal and bridesmaids) 2 chest corsages for moms, 8 tall centerpieces, 8 short centerpieces,  and 12 pew markers.  Total quote was about $1,700.

    I ordered 6 very tall (renting vases), 6 short and rose petals for 6 tables; 3 bouquets (mine plus 2), 6 bouts, 2 corsages, and 1 altar arrangement. With taxes, set-up fee, the cost is a little more than $1,300.

    We DIYed and spent about a little under $300 for 4 bouquets, 9 bouts, 12 centerpieces (very simple) and we leftover flowers.

    I couldn’t vote in your poll because I spent less than $400 on flowers. I ordered in bulk from Sam’s Club & fiftyflowers.com, and we DIY’d two bouquets, a few bouts & corsages, and maybe 8-10 floral arrangements to decorate the buffet, bar, etc. Centerpieces were non-floral (candles) and bridesmaids carried $6 parasols instead of bouquets. (Only the Maid/Matron of Honor and I carried bouquets.)

    I can’t vote!  🙂  We only spent $180 on 7 bouts, 6 corsages, my bouquet, 2 bm’s bouquets, hydrangea for 5 centerpieces, and 2 dozen long stemmed roses for my flower girl to hand out.  🙂

    I don’t know what our exact total was (flowers were Mom’s gift), but I’d guess it was a couple hundred dollars. We did bouquets (bridal + 3 BM), bouts (groom, 3 groomsmen, 2 dads) and corsages (2 moms + 2 gmas), and nothing else.

    We chose candle centerpeices to save money and because it was hard to me to not see the florals as wasteful when considering the cost.

    The flowers were the one aspect where we went WAY over budget. I am too embarrased to tell you how much we spent. But there is not an amount on the poll that came close.

    i have a friend with a family florist business who is getting me flowers wholesale and i’m DIY’ing my bouquet, his bout and the milk glass centerpieces for our reception (50 guests, so 7-8 tables) so it’ll be less than any of those options. i won’t know exactly how much until i place the order, but the glassware has cost me very little and i don’t expect the flowers to be very costly either.
