So trying to figure out the logistics for flowers here. I am ordering 300 white roses from Costco and making all of the flower arrangements myself. I want to make sure that 300 is enough so I’m trying to break down how all of the flowers would be used. My question is- how many roses should be in each centerpiece? I want them to be full and pretty with no other flowers or filler, something like this:
Also, side note- If I were going to make some nice arrangements for the alter for the cermony, how many roses (and yes probably filler in that one) should I use??
Thanks in advance!

The top picture you posted is probably 2 dozen. The bottom picture is probably about a dozen, but it looks like there are some other flowers in there as well (lisianthus maybe). So it depends how full you want them to be and whether you are looking to use any other flowers as “filler”. How many centerpieces do you need to make? And don’t forget the head table or the sweetheart table. Can’t beat Costco’s price on roses!
I’d need to see a photo of what you had in mind for the altar. You could use a lot or you could use a little depending…
>>Duh I just saw you don’t want filler flowers LOL

For the last one you posted, I can count 7 flowers, so assuming there’s about 3-4 on the other side, 10 or 11, maybe a dozen roses, and some type of filler flower.

Ok, 2 dozen doesn’t sound too bad. We only actually need 5 centerpieces like this becase the other 5 will be floating candles with petals and submerged roses. The head table I think we will use the bridesmaids and my bouquets as well as floating candles on the head table.
As far as the altar flowers go… I have no idea. The space is REALLY blank so I have to add something… it’s literally a blank canvas! Any ideas/pictures would be greately appreciated 🙂

The top arrangement looks like a little more than two dozen. Maybe thirty. I would do a few practice ones just to be sure.

I agree with the others. I think the top one is about 25-30 and the bottom one has about a dozen or so. The amount will depend on the size of your container….mainly the opening. You can achieve a full look with less flowers if you choose one with a small opening. I would choose the container you want to use and then do a practice run to see how many stems you need.
