I’m going the silk route (allergies/eco-friendly/budget) and probably ordering them from thebridesbouquet.com.
Mine will look like this (but be 2 dozen roses) and cost $41.99:
And my BMs will look like this ($20.99/each):
They also sell boutinneres and corsages that are anywhere from $3.99/each to $7.99/each.
I might also throw in a few garland strands, bringing the total to around $250ish.

I just made these yesterday as a trial run. I am using silk flowers. I paid $140 for mine, Bridesmaid or Best Man, Groomsmen, and parents grandparents. That cost included all of the supplies to make them too (ie. ribbion, tape, pearls, feathers, etc.) I am sorry for how large the pictures are. The top one is mine, and the bottom one is Bridesmaid or Best Man. FYI I will have 6 Bridesmaid or Best Man and 6 Groomsmen

I am getting real flowers but am keeping the sizes small to keep the cost down.. Mine will be Bridesmaid or Best Man size and is about $140 because of the flowers being used. My BM’s will be $65 and will be smaller than mine.

We’re taking a HUGE risk… And buying whatever is available grocery store flowers the day before! Our location is near three HUGE grocery stores with INSANE floral departments. They were doing a 2 dozen roses for $10 sale, and I went “We’re doing this. We’re going to go with whatever is on sale the day before!”
We’ll have to see how it goes!

@Stace126: A good friend of mine used abridesbouquet and hers were GORGEOUS. That’s what gave me the silk idea. Luckily, my Future Mother-In-Law retired from a floral design business, so all I had to do is buy the stems, she’s putting them together.
Each dozen was $2.50 from the floral district here.

Less than $50 total for my bouquet, 6 bridesmaids bouquets, and 7 boutonnieres. BUT I am making them all from paper myself. All origami flowers. I looked into pricing for fresh flowers and decided it wasn’t for me and now my ‘flowers’ are unique to me Good luck!

Mine will be $200. But I’m doing a button bouquet and I’ll be keeping it to pass on 🙂

Bouquet prices are all over the map !!
A lot depends on WHERE you live, and WHAT Flowers you want… as well as WHEN… time of year (what is and isn’t in season etc)
Then there is the size of the Bouquet to consider as well… not all bouquets are created equally (WHY it is sooo important to visit a Florist in person and see what they have to offer)
My own small / medium tropical bouquet was aprox $ 100 for our recent Destination Wedding (Ivory Roses – Orchids – Alstromeria Lillies – mini Calla Lillies)

@katy13: WOW! Your bouquet is GORGEOUS and does not look like it is made of silk.
I believe I was originally quoted ~ $85 for bridesmaids and ~ $150 or so for mine. My maids bouquets are going to be all babysbreath tho and that dropped the price to $35. I have not chosen what mine will be made of yet.

@mrshollinger: Thank you! I was really bummed at first about not having the funds to have fresh flowers. But I love what I made. And I don’t think they look tacky Do you? Thank you! I made both of them in less than an hour. So for the actuall wedding day I will balance them out with the feathers and pearls and I may put some broochs in it too, and make them perfect of course. 🙂
