So I almost fell out when I saw my florist quote the other day. Now I’m brainstorming on all the options possible to bring the cost down. I know that there are many factors to the over all cost of flowers (i.e. in season, easily attainable, etc.) no matter how small or big the bouquet may be. Besides making fabric flowers, I thought of smaller bouquets.
Did you have a small bouquet for you and your girls? Did you do single or a few flowers? Would you mind sharing pics? Pretty please…with sugar on top 😉

These are a couple of the inspiration pics I have. I want small, all-rose bouquets. No filler and short stems also reduce the cost. I realize the first picture is not a *real* wedding…

If you are looking for silk flowers, mine are from a seller on etsy they are about 10″ across and cost $25 each. For:
1 Bride bouquet — $69.99
4 Bridesmaid bouquets —$32 each
1 toss bouquet — $40
1 Groom Bout – $6
3 Groomsman Bouts – $4 each
2 Bouts for dads – $6 each
2 Mom coursages – $8 each
3 grandmother coursages – $8 each
3 grandfather bouts –
Total $307.99. Package discount: 20% OFF, so the final package price is $246 plus shipping.
Alot cheaper than buying real flowers, and I love the fact that you can keep them forever, no dead flowers two days after the wedding. Hope that helps ya 🙂

I’m hoping for something like this for my BMs…these are dahlias (not this color for mine though). You could probably do something inexpensive with gerber daisies too.

@milesbella: I love those! I’m using billy balls in my flowers too 🙂

is it a possibility for you to order in bulk??? I ordered my flowers through Sams Club and was able to get around 300 stems of roses and mini lillies for about $200

@ruby.cosmo: yeah, I thought of that. But I’m not sure if I want to deal with putting the flowers together the day before/of… Was it easy for you?

It cost $250 for 6 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets. These are calla lillies and an herb from Isreal that smells like black tea…. forget the name of it!
