@louanneandmike:

I would just buy about 6-9 stems of each of the flowers shown in that bouquet. That should more than cover it and you can make it bigger if you like. Buy more of the flower you like better. I count 9 roses in that bouquet but there maybe some hiding. Doing a bouquet or centerpiece yourself is a lot easier than florists want you to believe! Have fun!!

@louanneandmike:  I do recall, when I was talking to one florist about pricing, that she mentioned that odd numbers make a better-looking round bouquet than even dozens.  (We were talking about bouquets made primarily of a single type of flower, plus some greenery – I think that I had initially said small bouquets of 1/2 dozen roses for the BMs and 1 dozen for me, and she mentioned that seven made a better bouquet than six, and thirteen would make a better one than twelve.)

Since this bouquet is a mix of different flowers, I don’t know if the same holds true?

It looks like you have some time before you need to make yours … maybe you could go to a craft store with silk flowers and just grab a bunch of blossoms and try holding them in an impromptu bouquet to get an idea of how many you would need to make the size you’re aiming for? (If you’re not going to buy them, I would do the employees the courtesy of putting them back in the correct bins so that they don’t have to.)
