@mariebee14:  I’m not sure what that is but we spent $550 on our flowers– it probably could have been cheaper if I would have went with a local florist with cheaper flowers but I fell in love with Frangipanis… in case you are interested in where we got them… http://www.loveflowers.com.au/                     Miranda is the absolute best and a sweet heart.  She made me feel 100% confident even though she was in Australia- we are from the Midwest!

@mariebee14:  it’s really hard to say without knowing how many in the bridal party, how many corsages, etc. Can you give numbers?

Does that include delivery and setup charges?  If so I think that number is great.  We ordered about the same plus one large floral piece for the church and are paying 700 total (including taxes and setup and delivery charges) and it definitely was a good deal compared to other options.

@mariebee14:  I spent $320 on my flowers, but I went DIY.  I think you’ll find a lot of savings if you decide to do the DIY route.  In fact, my flowers were one of the easiest DIYs I did and it saved me lots of money (I ordered from fiftyflowers and costco).  I was able to get 5 bouquets (1 bridal, 2 BM, 2 nosegays for moms, and 1 toss), petals for my tables, and these ceremony arrangements.

@housebee:  Very pretty. I was thinking about DIY. About how far in advance did you have the flowers delivered, what was time to put together boquets and centerpieces? I am so worried about the flowers wilting before the day I need them, but that is probably my irrational stress.

@Bella83:  I ordered them to be delivered 2 days before my wedding, we did the bouquets the day before and kept everything in water until just before pictures (keep the stems long, then cut 2-3 inches from the bottom so the flowers don’t drip).  However, I didn’t do boutonnieres or corsages, which I believe have to be made the morning of the event and kept refrigerated (I didn’t refrigerate any of my flowers).  Instead of corsages, I did nosegays (small bouquets) and instead of regular boutonnieres, I made boutonniere alternatives since the guys are all gamers.

@mariebee14:  they are Lol love them. We got a bridal, 5 bridesmaid, and extra flowers because I made the corsages and boutonnières. It saved a ton!

@lynnielou33193:  That is the most I want to spend. Probably around 500.

@mariebee14:   They are gorgeous- I love them!  This is the corsage– I put these and the boutineers together! 

@tm21308:  ya there were cheaper flower options but those were my favorite!! I included the corsage I made with the flowers I got but I don’t have one on my phone of my bouquet

@mariebee14:  that sounds reasonable. I paid around that for my bouquets, corsages and boutineres. It starts to really add up when you get centerpieces
