Carnations are pretty inexpensive, and they look great when they are used in large amounts, like this:

We are using hydrangea.  While they are 5 dollars a bloom, they can be up to 8″ in diameter, so you need less to make an impact.

They can also spray hydrangea to be just about any color.  Green hydrangea are naturally occuring, but more expensive than white ones.  So we are having white ones sprayed.  It’s cheaper.

Our wedding is June 19th

Have you tried Costco or something similar? You can purchase flowers online and have them shipped. We bought bulk flowers from them, and made 2 bouquets, 7 boutonnieres, 2 small bouquets, and about 22 centerpieces (30 roses each, with delphinium, moss, and ivy), for about $500. This was in 2004, but I can’t imagine prices have gone up *that* much!

Maybe check online (whole blossoms, sams club…) they have prices listed so you can compare prices (expect florist to be 50-100% more in my experience) and you might even think about ordering thru them depending on how easy your bouquets/centerpieces are to put together.

I second the hydrangea suggestion – each flower isn’t all that cheap but you don’t need as many of them.  My florist told me they can range in price from $3-$8 a bloom depending on what type you are looking for.  Apprently the ones I want are more expensive, but it’s still worth it to me to pay $8 a bloom when I will only need 3 or 4 to fill a vase.
