we had them, but we did diy and bought them wholesale which cut the cost down a LOT. i’m not a tallented florist so we just chose one type of flower, cut the stems, and plopped them in a vase. they looked beautiful!

Artbee had a good suggestion with DIYing – especially since you can get vases for cheap at dollarstore.com and a couple hundred roses for cheap at fiftyflowers.com

I guess I would be curious what you would have if you didn’t do flowers? I thought about doing baskets of treats but realized it would be MORE expensive than doing flowers.

The only other option I can think of would be branches in tall vases – but even then it seems like you might need something to decorate them with – so that might end up being the same price as flowers (unless you went totally DIY and made flowers or found cheap beads).

ooh that sounds delicious – I don’t think I would notice the lack of flowers if there were chocolate centerpieces. I’d be too excited!

I think if it bothers you then maybe you could get a few flower arrangment to put on focal points in the room (cake table, middle of your table). Plus reusing your bouquets is a great idea because after pics who wants to carry them around?
