    I’m only spending $380, but that is because I’m only getting personal flowers for myself and the guys and gals (no reception or ceremony decor).

    We spent a little under $250 on ours.  However, we needed only two bridal bouquets, one Maid/Matron of Honor bouquet, and one bout.  And we were using roses, which are pretty much available year-round.

    At the reception, the only flowers we had were some freeze-dried rose petals scattered on the cake and the tables.  We bought those for $50, used less than half of them, and sold the rest for $25 after the wedding.

    My flowers were $381 and included the following:

    -bridal bouquet: with bright blue hydrangreas (apparently a little more expensive than powder blue?), white gerbera minis and I’m adding an elephant charm to it
    -3 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets: just plain white gerbera daises (the large ones)
    -1 toss bouquet: similar to the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets but smaller
    -6 bouts: white gerbera minis (a little extra something in FHs bout to match my bouquet)
    -2 corsages: white gebera minis (I think)
    -6 centerpieces: light blue hydranges, another white flower (its a filler– I forget what its called), and white gerbera daisies
    -delivery

    I thought I got a pretty decent price too.

    I did the flowers for our wedding myself. I ordered 350 roses from theflowerexchange.com and my Maid/Matron of Honor and myself did the bouquets and centerpieces the morning before the wedding. I did get the bouts and hair flowers from a florist because I didn’t want roses for those. Loved how everything turned out!

    For 9 bouquets, 10 corsages, and 16 bouts, we’re paying about $700. That includes; cabbage roses, ranunculus, lilac, lily of the valley, iris, sweet pea, lavender, rosemary, and other flowers. We plan on DIYing 25 floral centerpieces for an additional $400.

    Monny,

    My Maid/Matron of Honor and I are planning on doing the same thing.  Did you have trouble at all ordering flowers that way?  And if you had any examples on how to put the bouquets together, can you share the site you used??

    I budgeted $1K for flowers, and we managed to come in just slightly under budget. We purchased a lot, so I think it’s a pretty good deal!

    @baybejen: Hi! I have the same amount of people in my bridal party as you, but I am also doing centerpieces on 16 tables, my price is about $800. Cutting centerpieces it would have been around $400. I was really surprised as well at how much flowers didn’t cost, thought it would be a lot more, but I also am not doing anything too eloborate at the tables.

    Everything is silk in my wedding. All my bouquets (5 of them) were under $100 and centerpieces were uner $10 a piece. 😀 Granted they aren’t real but who cares?
