All I know is the hydrangeas I ordered were $5.00 a stem. 

We are not having many flowers.

My bouquet, groomsmen corsages, ceremony decor, parent and grandparent flowers, and a few flowers here and there at the reception are costing me $1000. 

My girls and carrying lanterns…

My main centerpieces are half lanterns and half branch lit tea lights. 

We are having two hydrangeas on each table in mason jars to accompany the centerpieces…(total of 26)

I like flowers..but they are really expensive considering their life span =(

I also am doing Hydrangeas as my main flower theme!

i’m having 100 guests(12 centerpieces)/3 bridesmaids bouquets & 3 groomsmen bouts/bridal bouquet/1 flower girl basket with petals/2 corsages for mothers/extra bout for Fiance, grandfather and 2 brothers/aisle flowers/cake table petals/2 larger arrangements for around $1325.00.

Prices do vary by region. I’m in California.  I shopped around and flowers are just expensive. Good luck!

My flowers (bouquets, bouts, flowers for moms/grandmas, and ceremony decorations) came to between $750-800. I didn’t order any for my reception/centerpieces. It would be helpful to think about how much you’re willing to spend and be upfront with your florist ahead of time so they can accomodate you. I don’t know how much hydrangeas are. Good luck!

My bouquet was $80, Bridesmaids $4x$45 so $180, Groom Bout $9, groomsmen and dad $8×5=$40, both mom corsage $20×2=$40, Rose for Grandma $3, toss boquet was free and we has a $25 off with our postcard, plus delivery/set up was $15 for a grand total of $342.

We did our own centerpieces so this is helping is save cost a lot.

You’ll be able to save money if you don’t lock yourself into a certain flower. Determine your budget for flowers, and then have a florist work within that budget. If you’re open to alternate flowers, they can make some really beautiful arrangements using less expensive flowers. You just need to let them be creative.

Double post. Weddingbee was going slow and I was impatient!
