I made my own. It really isn’t too hard, just a pain the butt to hold all together. I bought them all from Hobby Lobby for 50% off so with 8 bridesmaids bouquets and my own pretty detailed bouquet I spent around a total of 125. For my bouquet I even purchased the “real touch” flowers to make it seem more real for photos.

I got mine on afloral.com. Their prices are great and the often post coupons.

For my upcoming wedding I was planning on doing ivory rose bouquets for my bridesmaids and then I’ll be carrying red roses. Quotes for my bouquet alone were running around $175 (for real flowers), and then I have 7 bridesmaids! I’m not a flower person, so I just didn’t want to spend over $1000 on something that is going to die in a day anyway.
I actually ordered all of my bouquets on Etsy. A lovely woman named Lily has a store on there and she makes gorgeous arrangements. She’s awesome to work with and is very thorough with any customizations you would like.
She’s doing my 10″ round bridal bouquet, my MOH’s 9″ round bouquet, and 6 bridesmaid 8″ round bouquets, plus a 7″ toss bouquet (so 9 bouquets total), all for $257. I believe with shipping it put me around $275. It will take her about 4-6 weeks which she let me know of ahead of time, but my wedding isn’t until October so I’m not worried about it.
Here are some photos of her work. This one is the bouquet I’ll be carrying (but without the black pearls and with ivory ribbon under the black lace instead of the red shown):
Then here are my bridesmaid’s bouquets, but the ribbon on the bottom will be red:
Most of her packages included boutonierres for the groom, groomsmen, FOB and FOG and then corsages for the MOB and MOG but I didn’t want any corsages or boutonierres. She’ll also make matching ceremony/reception decorations if you’d like.
If you’re interested send me a PM and I can link you to her Etsy page. 🙂

@Saria213: I have just decided to use fake flowers for my wedding in October and have come across the same seller, her prices seem REALLY reasonable compared to what else I have seen

I made my own bouquet, 4 wrist corsages, and 5 boutonnieres for about $40 using coupons at Michaels; also look for sales around Mother’s Day, etc. if you want to DIY.

@zeniadb82: I decided to go the dake flower route as well but I got fake flowers called real touch flowers instead of silk ones. Everyone thought they were real when I used them at my wedding! I got them from a website called bloombridal.com

I made mine…and I used one of those floral foam holder thingies as a base. And then wrapped that. The bridesmaid bouquets are just long stemmed callas wrapped together.

@zeniadb82: I made my own at hobby Lobby because there is a smart phone coupon for 40$ offf regular prices and then most of the time the flowers are 50 to 60% off. So I got away with 3 bouts, 2 bridesmaids bouquets and my bouquet for about $70 all supplies included. Mine has 21 roses, theirs have 12 each and then the filler lavender and floral tape. All inclusive in that pricing.
