What color dresses are your bridesmaids wearing? Have you choosen a general color palette for your wedding yet?
You can save a LOT on flowers by buying them from Costco, Sam’s Club, or the grocery store. Here in Houston, Central Market and Whole Foods both have BEAUTIFUL flowers! You can discuss your bouquet ideas with them in advance (print out some photos of some flowers you like!) and the day before the wedding, have a bridesmaid or family member go pick them up.
There are so, so many flower options out there! Let me know what general colors you like – pink, white, blue, green, multi-colored… and if there’s any flowers you love (roses, tulips, orchids, calla lillies…?) and I can help you search for some inspiration.

Roses, carnations and daisies are affordable options and like PP said are available at Costco in bulk. $99 for 100 stems. A large grouping of one type of flower would look gorgeous.

Sam’s Club online has wedding collections that has premade bouquets, boutineers, corsages, petals etc. They have basic colors – white, red, pink, yellow.
EDIT: There are also a lot of user reviews with photos if you are weary!

@Mrs. Wallaby: yess they are very cheap at those stores. But cant i go online for sams? Or i can pre order them at the store. And well my colors are black and white. Its a damask weddihg them. The pop color im doing is red. Ibwas wondering if there were black flowers available?
I wanna be affordable and do the bouquets on my own. But would i do that the night before? I dont want my flower to be all dead the next day or so.

Everyone has you covered! I would personally do red roses as they are very affordable and when put together en mass they are gorgeous. Black flowers are rare and that makes them costly. Stick with red.

I would do all red roses. Thou could make them the night before as long as they are in water and in a cool area overnight. All roses will be the easiest DIY bouquet to make, even if they are a little pricier than other options, they will look more expensive.
