Our total is WAY more than we originally wanted to spend, but we are getting a lot more than originally planned as well :).
My bridal bouquet:$185
Bridesmaids: 45 each
Flower girl: 35 for bouquet and 35 for her "crown"
Bout’s for the guys: About 10, all 7 or 9 dollars depending.
Small bouquets for the mothers (versus corsages) 35 each
2 grandmother corsages: 18 each
the toss bouquet is free!
And two blue hydrangea wreaths for 125 each to decorate the church.
The total was somewhere around 1300 with delivery.
We are also hiring a lady at the local farmers market who has an AMAZING flower "patch" for the two large bouquets for the altar. That will probably be approx. 60 bucks total. She did the flowers for my bridal shower and they were absolutely GORGEOUS!

Rendez-Vous Florist near the Beverly Ctr. was our florist and they were amazing. They were way more reasonable priced, but had the phenomenal quality of the big fancy florists like L.A. Premier.
Your arrangements will be full of good flowers and not filler flowers. They are creative on their own, but bring pictures if you have ideas.
8100 West 3rd Street , Los Angeles ,CA 90048 (Corner of 3rd Street and Crescent Heights ). (323)653-4166 and ask for Lily or Tiger.

I went to the LA Flower District for my flowers. For pics click here.
I spent $695 for:
- 18 Center Pieces
- 10 Boutonniers
- 6 corsages
- 4 bridesmaid boquets
- 1 Bridal Boquet
- Flowers for the arbor
This includes delivery and set-up fees. If I pay cash, tax (8.25%) will NOT be added to the $695.

One more thing — I didn’t go with the cheapest vendor; I went with the one that did the best creation of what I visioned. Here is the info:
The name of the company is Casa Blanca Flower Shop, phone: 213-955-9227, 536 East 8th Street, Los Angeles, 90014. It helps if you speak spanish, or bring someone who does. They made a mock-up of what I wanted and then we negotiated.
