I wish I could help – but the sticker shock got me too.  Initially I wanted lily of the valley in my bouquet, especially since my birthday is in may (it’s the flower for the month) and have always loved them.  Maybe you could use just a few of them?

Maybe thats what the cost is right now because of the season.  Have you tried to talk to one of the reprosentatives maybe they will be cheaper come your wedding.

unlike some other flowers, I think you could find some silk ones that would look realistic…since you are making your own, that would save you the stress the week of the wedding.  Do you want it to just be Lily of the Valley?

I’m using vintage paper lily of the valley. I made all the boys bout’s and they look pretty good (i’ve tried taking photos and haven’t been able to yet but I’l keep trying). Nothing as lovely as real lily of the valley , but it’s a lot better price. I got 300+ on e-bay for 15 bucks.

I’m using lily of the valley for my bouquet out of season too.  I was willing to cut down on other floral expenses in order to be extravagant on this one, but my florist suggested either combining real and silk LOV (you get the scent and the fullness, but at a smaller price) or having a bouquet of LOV and mini white callas or roses.  That said, I think my florist manages to get them for about half the price you are quoting – out of season – so it is worth it to me to pay her about twenty dollars to hand tie the bouquet rather than paying twice the price for the flowers and DIYing them.  Maybe you can shop around for florists’ quotes?
