I highly HIGHLY recommend going with Flowers by Nancy Joslin. She is SO insanely sweet and will definitely work with your budget. I think she does flowers for fun or something because she mostly charges for just the flowers and a bit
more for her time. My really good friend recommended her to me after seeing her work from a co-workers wedding pictures. She has a ton of experience too!
Here's a breakdown of my floral costs:
Bride: Dome style bouquet with white calla lilies, white/pink throat cymbidium
orchids, and vendela roses. Stems to be partially wrapped in ivory
ribbon with pearls
Bridesmaids (4): Dome style bouquet with white calla lilies, green cymbidum
orchids and stems partially wrapped in green ribbon
Jr Bridesmaids (2): Nosegay style bouquet with white calla lilies, and stems wrapped in green ribbon
Flower Girl (2): Wand with hot pink gerbera daisies, green button mums
and 12” tail in green and ivory ribbon
Groom: Two white calla lilies with bear grass
Groomsmen (4): One white calla lily with green button mum
Fathers (2): Same as groomsmen
Ring Bearer (1): Same as groomsmen
Mothers (2): Wrist corsage with two white calla lilies and green button mums and

14 blooms of green hydrangea and 14 blooms of white hydrangea

vases and using brown curly willow with mini green
cymbidium orchids and green dendrobium orchids

$360.00 w/only dendrobium orchids
8 - Renting florists 10” clear glass footed bowls with
foot and surrounding inside of bowl with bear
grass and using 2 white fluffy seasonal blooms,
such as dahlia.
I'll be providing 8 more centerpieces of my own that won't be flowers. We have to do corsages and bouts for the family but one of my FSILs will be doing those for me. Nancy will order the roses for me and also
provide me with the pins, green tape, corsage band, etc totally at wholesale cost!
My total without the family flowers will be $1202 including delivery/set-up (and if I do the tall centerpieces with just dendrobium orchids.. we're adding 2 hydrangea balls on each as well for only $3 each!!).
PM me if you want her info!!!
