I made my bridesmaids bouquets for about $60, but I used silk flowers!

I ordered my bouquet online in natural touch silk flowers for $65.

Decorations, centerpieces bouts, and corsages all came out to about $200. Also, silk flowers.

Soo approx. $325 total.

I’m not sure if you’re doing silk or real, but that was my silk floral budget ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ Flowers aren’t a big deal to me. Not that I don’t like them, I just wanted to save money in that area so I could put more towards food. ๐Ÿ™‚

But the silk flowers actually turned out great I’m really happy I did it (well, most it) myself.

$500. Everything is being done by the florist except the centerpieces (coming from friends). Our wedding is outdoors in a garden so decorative flowers are already there. My bouquet is $100, bridesmaids are $50, and the rest is boutineers, corsages, etc.

I got all the 4 bouquets, 8 corsages, 8 bouts, and 2 flower girl baskets for $750. Then I ordered orchids from fiftyflowers.com for $130 for the centerpieces and bought vases from Ikea for $50. That makes it about $930 total.

Overall budget is $25,000 for a wedding of 180 guests. We chose to spend more on food and photography, less on flowers and music. I thought about diy bouquets, even bought fake flowers to try it with, but couldn’t imagine the stress of doing that the day of or day before, and my wedding party wasn’t very interested in helping.

My budget is about $1000 for 20 tables, my bouquet, and 5 bridesmaid bouquets.  I am doing the flowers myself, so I’m ordering flowers from Sam’s Club, Costco, a local peony farm, and a local florist.

I did pick simple arrangements so I won’t tear my hair out a few days before the wedding!!

$800 for two ceremony arrangements, about 17 floating orchid centerpieces, bridal bouquet, 6 bridesmaids bouquets, 8 bouts, 4 corsages, flower girl basket and all rented glasswear/mirrors/candles for the centerpieces.

I hired a retired florist, so her costs are a lot less than an actual floral shop.

@Neele – – do you have someone here in Seattle helping you plan?  A great way to save is to order from Metropolitan Market or even Pike Place…They’ll order you flowers at wholesale and then you can do them or you can have them do everything…Just a thought!!!

Im also asking her for the petals that shes going to peel off from the bouquet/bouts for the aisle flowers. I forget what its called but i hear its free to ask for them since they are going to be tossed anyway.

Wow! Those prices are great ladies!

I’m going to come out at $2,000, but I’m getting a lot of design for the money, so I feel good about it.

1 Bridal bouquet; 3 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets; 2 corsages; 10 centerpieces including 30 mason jars total and 10 pitchers with flowers, 10 bowls of iced lemons; 18 small buckets of flowers to line the aisle; 4 cocktail table centerpieces; 2 wreaths to hang over the entryways.

That total is with me providing all of the containers for the florist to use.

I am trying to keep my total under $400 for bouquets, centerpieces, etc.  I am ordering my flowers in bulk from Costco (they have great flowers there) and then my MoH and I will be doing the arrangements and bouquets.  I feel very confident about the centerpieces, I’m a little more worried about the bouquets, but my MoH is very crafty and she assures me that she knows what she’s doing. 

 

In the end, they’re flowers.  Flowers are pretty.  I’m pretty sure we won’t screw it up too bad, right?
