I am trying to figure out how much is normal to spend on my Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets to carry down the aisle. I am already getting fake flowers since i am having a destination wedding. if i wanted real flowers, the resort charges $60 per bouquet for BMs. I have 6 BMs, so that is just too much to spend.
then i found really nice looking fake ones for $30 each! still when i multiply it by 6, it seems like a lot to spend to be used only for 30 minutes max!
so, how much are you spending on your bridesmaid bouquets – real or fake?

I had real flowers, and if I remember correctly the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets were somewhere around $60-$75 and I’m pretty sure mine was about $150 because it was double the size.

I’m not sure my answer is helpful, but I only have 2 bouquets. 1 for me and 1 for my Maid/Matron of Honor.
Bride: Black Magic Roses (from Ecuador) = $250
Maid/Matron of Honor: White roses, spray roses and gardenias = $120.

The prices you have been quoted and have found seem reasonable. If you don’t want to spend that much, you might consider clutches or parasols for your girls. Or depending on the size of the flowers you are using, you could just get 1 to 3 stems wrapped in a single doublefaced ribbon for the girls.

@stephanie63087: well, some fake ones that i have seen DO look pretty fake! your pics look great though…..hmmm, maybe though i will hold off on ordering mine until i check with you about how they turned out? I hope you don’t mind me “using” you like that!!

I ordered mine this week and they are £40 for each Bridesmaid or Best Man they are rose bouquets with some berries. How old are your bridesmaids? I’m having two little flowergirls and instead of getting them flowers I have just bought them little bags. They also showed me wands at the florists for BMs these where £17 each.

I found my bridesmaids silk bouquets on afloral.com for about $13 a piece. I still wanted real flowers for myself and we had already put a deposit down with a florist so we ended up paying around $175 for mine. Looking back I wish I had gotten silk as well but we didn’t want to loose our deposit.
