Low cost floral options

I am struggling with the quotes I get from florists- I just need 1 bride bouquet and 1 bridesmaid bouquet plus 6 bouttenieres, and I am getting quotes $400+.  I am scared to do my own flowers but I really am looking to spend around 150 to 200 dollars.... help please!?

proflowers.com or 800flowers both do inexpensive wedding packages.  I don't think they will be as cheap as 150 but at least they could save you some money.

Do you know anybody has the artistic ability to help wiht this as a DIY project?  They say up and coming professional can give a great bargain... try your local trade school, for instance we have CCOC in our areat that has floral class or the local community college... you might find great talent to low price... GOOD LUCK!

Don't go with fiftyflowers.com...one of the brides on here used them and they came in looking horrible and left her in a bind.


I got lucky and found a lady who does it for budget brides and justs charges you for the wholesale price of the flower and the materials...I got 11 bouts 1 bride bouq 4 bm  bouq 4 small bouq for the moms and gms and toss bouq and extra flowers for under 450.00 TOTAL. The only thing that went wrong was that the wholesaler got a bad batch of callas and their backstock was ruined by the hurricane so I had tiny mini calls and regular callas but she tried to fix it...and at the time if the wedding I was not going to allow myself to get upset over something so small.

I bought mine from proflowers weddings and they were already tied and arranged when they arrived at my house and their prices were great!
