Mine is about 16″ and will cost about $250+tax. Definitely real. If you’re really trying to cut costs I understand considering artificial, but do you really want faux? Think of all the pics you’ll be in, if its an affordable option go real. This pic is what I sent to the florists for my inspiration.

Mine was probably about 14”…? Fresh flowers. 

Retail cost was about $250 (Peonies and garden roses aren’t cheap flowers but I absolutely had to have them!) a relative of mine runs her own floral business so we got everything at cost! 

Note: if you’re on a budget, you can still have fresh flowers.

Just keep in mind what kind of blooms and greenery are in season, less expensive, and consider possibly more greenery than blooms!

This won’t help with the cost, but size wise you can see how big it is and what it covered. About 22-24″

I don’t have mine yet, but it will be a cascade bouquet, about 11 inches. I am going with sola flowers, and the price for my bouquet is $135. I personally think sola flowers are very lovely when photographed (I know others disagree and don’t like the look of artificial flowers in pictures. To each their own!) and I personally love being able to pay less for something I can keep as a beautiful memory of my wedding, versus paying more for something that will die in a day or two.

Here is a picture of what my bouquet will look like:

So sometimes size matters and sometimes it doesn’t laughing check out Rose Leslie from GoT at her wedding in Scotland last year. Her dress alone was like $20,000+ and she has a small bouquet/nosegay.

 I had a 7 or 8 inch Sola bouquet. It was a little small compared to “traditional” bouquets, but I didn’t have a bridal party to compete with. I also liked the more “European” look of a smaller bouquet with my french lace dress. I like the look of the Sola flowers and the fact that they’re more “eco”, economical, and that I still have my bouquet as a keepsake. (Picture is from now, 6 months post wedding) I think my bouquet was $75.

Mine was on a smaller side but very heavy.

Not sure of the look you were going for but mine was about 12”x8”. I went to the farmers market the day before my wedding and bought them as single stems, then wrapped them up. It cost about $15. I wanted the wildflower look so I didn’t really care for it to be perfectly arranged. I’ve also had friends buy premade bouquets from grocery stores or small florists for >$50, then tuck in single stems of peonies etc to make them more “custom.” Lots of options out there!

I’m going to be wearing a wrist corsage.
