Are you renting them or buying them? I would not buy them becasue it’s a waste of money, if they use fake flowers so you can “rent”them that would be okay… at a dramatically reduced price of course, like $10 each?

I would just ask the florist. My sister is a wedding florist and she says all the time, If the bride will just let them know what they want to spend they can try and  give options to make it work.

Simply tell your florist exactly what you were looking to spend and she should be able to make it work for you. My florist quoted around the same price and I got her to go $10 cheaper just by simply asking. She just cut out the number of smaller flowers by a flower or two and was able to make it work.

I agree, for a $10 difference they should be able to work with that, either by filling with the cheaper flower or making it not as full. Another option would be to change the vase, or ask if they have containers you can rent.
