    As I mentioned my photographer/venue owner and the florist have been wanting to advertise their businesses so she is doing my flowers at cost.

    I didn't go too crazy here but I did want real flowers and I didn't cut many corners. I am a bit under budget here so I feel good about that! Smiley smile

    Save. Although I still feel like I'm spending a lot on flowers, I cut costs where I could and my total cost is less than others that I've heard of

    Our venue does offer flowers as part of the package for the centrepieces or to place around the venue, but knowing I would still need to get ceremony arrangements and bouquets, etc. I decided to splurge a little on the flowers. I did save on that too because I won $500 off my flowers when I caught a bouquet at a bridal show.

    Save. We'll be paying a florist to put together the bouquets, but I think we'll do the centerpieces and other decor ourselves!

    Save. We are doing the absolute bare minimum of flowers, and are planning to just go to a farmers market the day before for a few small arrangements, and for me to make my bouquet.

    Save but looks like I splurged - my florist is AMAZING and the price is even better. Compared to the two other florists I spoke with, the quote I received from my florist is less than half of what the other two quoted me, for the exact same things. I also am renting some decor pieces from my florist and the prices are fantastic. I helped that she lives super close to the venue, and so delivery and setup fees are minimal, but her work is stunning and she charges absolutely amazing prices.

    I am not sure what the average cost of flower is so I just gave my friend a budget and she stuck to it and I can't wait to see what she comes up with Smiley heart I would say save on this one.

    Splurge! I love hydrangeas and they're apparently one of the most expensive wedding flowers out there.

    Splurge, even though we're using a lot of eucalyptus and greenery our florist is very pricey

    Splurge - I think the look of the flowers is important. I was able to find the look and flowers I want for such a great price!!

    I'm having silk flowers and my FH's aunt will actually be making the bouquets for us. I've already ordered a good chunk of the flowers and I've only spent $140.

    I'm planning on ordering bulk flowers from Cost-co then arranging them myself. In the end all of my flowers for bouquets, and decor will be under $500.

    Really saved on our florals by making our own bouquets and other décor. I got most of my flowers from the dollar store, the thrift shops, or given to me free. Everything will be colourful with the fall theme.

    We went to a florist and didn't really splurge but got what we wanted within our budget. I think we were able to put a bit more money toward them than anticipated since we saved in other places.

    We will be getting our flowers for the centerpieces from Costco as well as the ceremony. The bridal bouquets and boutonnieres will be from a flower shop.

    This is a definite save for us. I prefer fake flowers over real flowers for the most part and did not want to put a ton of money into florals for the wedding. The venue includes our flower centerpieces for us.

    This is a splurge for us. Our quote was just over $2000. This also includes her decorating our outdoor ceremony though and then reusing a bunch of our decor and flowers outside indoors during our reception.

    I want to save on florals. I have already gotten a $2500 quote for flowers which are expensive. Thinking of going to Safeway or small business floral store to get flowers. Want to spend less than $1000 on flowers total includes the centerpieces.

    This is a splurge to me but I'm sure I could've spent a lot more. My grandma offered to pay a portion of the flowers which is wonderful.
