We are using them for bouts. I wanted to do button dahlia bouts but the florist said it is hard to do those as they are often way too big (and look like clown bouts that spray water at you!).
So we are doing freesia bouts for groomsmen and fathers and the groom will have a lilly in similar colors.
I’m sure the types of flowers I’m using are adding to the cost of flowers, but they will all be locally grown and I’m sure they will look stunning.

The prices you got are very normal for the area in which you live. If you look at these boards you can’t really compare your prices with others because where you live/weddi ng is determines prices in southern states things are cheaper than New Jersey. You can’t compare Northeast to other places in the USA. In that case mine is in NY and have about the same prices mine is $200, bridesmaids are $80 each corsages are $25 each boutonnieres he is throwing in free, centerpieces are $80 a piece. It ends up to be over 2,000 dollars.

That sounds like such a pretty combination! I Googled the stephanotis and I’m glad I did. They’re such beautiful flowers. We’re getting married in Hawaii (I guess it’s a semi-destination because my family lives there but his is coming from NJ & CA) and for some reason I was thinking that tropical flowers – orchids, plumeria & mini roses would be cheaper since they were local. But I guess I was totally wrong about that!

@Lisamr: That’s a good point about regional prices. After looking around the board I am seeing a steady variation in prices for venues/catering etc…Just my luck that my families are living in expensive wedding states. Boo!
