@RaeTRud: Depending on what our final cost ends up being it’s between 6 and 10%.

Less than 5%, and our flowers were beautiful…It was mainly bouquets and boutenieres /corsages…We used the venue’s centerpieces so we didn’t have to spend on that…

The florist delivered everything and also set up my aisle runner, and the tulle alongside the aisleway on the chairs so people wouldn’t be able to step out onto the aisle runner…

Altogether, with delivery:  4 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, Bride bouquet (peonies! I loved it!), 10 boutennieres (sp!), 4 wrist corsages, and a gorgeous throwaway bouquet:  $475

We did use hydrangeas for bm bouquets which are very inexpensive so that helped:)

Not totally done yet, but it should come out to about 10%. We are at about 5700 hundred right now for overall dollars spent, minus my ring and his suit. Our flowers are $550.
