I’m planning on doing my own flowers for my our renewal and buying the flowers from Sam’s Club. We have a $6000 total budget and will be spending about $400 for 125 roses, 70 gerbera daisies, 40 hydrangea, 70 dendrodium orchids. Ribbon, floral tape, and vases will probably be another $100, which will still leave us at less than 10% of our budget, which is what I’m aiming for.

5%, $500, thats for centerpieces (3 blooms total per table) 7 bridesmaids, 7 groomsmen, 4 corsages, bridal boquet and 2 flower girls baskets. We got married in a garden and so luckily didnt need alter arrangements.

Ours was pretty low because we didn’t want to spend a lot on flowers…probably about 1.5%.

Budget is 300. I dont care if bridesmaids go down the aisle with only one flower(yes Ive seen that done,and I like it).And I dont care if the guys dont have a boutinere or the moms have a corsage. After my bouquet,if I dont have any more money for those things, then we arent doing them.Get the freak over it!!

And no I dont want u to give me money for it. I want to do what I can on our budget. If u dont like it, then dont be in the wedding and dont go to the wedding. Y cant u just be happy and stop telling us what we should have and/or do?!?!?!

Thats what I want to say to some people.
