Budget Savvy Brides: $5K and Under

Real flowers on a 5k budget??? I hope so...

Whenever I close my eyes and see my dream wedding, it's filled with beautiful soft pink and white flowers....  I sooo badly want real flowers!!!  Is anybody else out there trying desperately to fit fresh flowers into their tiny budget?  How did you manage to do it? I have an appt. w/ a florist on friday, hopefully i can afford it *crossing my fingers*

Thanks cmfrantti!  The flowers are LOVELY!  I'm so inspired now!  Was it difficult to store and deliver all the flowers??

Just in case anyone was interested the florist quoted me for $580 which includes hydrangeas, roses, freesia, dahlias, peonies, & tulips.  It also includes storage & delivery.  


Oh also, it's all diy so I'm not charged for labor or design.

I told my florist my budget is $300-325 for flowers.  I want all roses - 4 bouquets, 6 boutonnieres, and 1 corsage.  Plus I believe she's going to bring flowers for the cake and petals for the food/cake tables.  I'm not going any more elaborate on flowers.  The bouquets will double as the centerpiece on the head table.


First of all, know what kind of flowers you want (preferrably ones are are in season) then shop around until you get the price you're looking for.
