$10,000 in flowers, Lanc pa.

So I went today and got a quote for flowers, that will be a little under $3,000 and this was a decent amt of flowers.  I come to find ou that my Fiancee's parents were willing to give us 10,000 towards flowers!! WE Will NOT need that much in flowers.  BUT, I really want to make a "wow" entrance into the reception. How do we make sure we have enough flowers for that effect and say we only want to do 3500 in flowers?   We eally could use that money towards other things like our photographer (4,000)  and a dj  rings, etc. How should we really split the $$ up? 
I am open for suggestions!!
Thanks!

    <div>Agreed.  Before you even start thinking of spending the extra money on something else, ask your FILs if it's ok with them.</div>

    They agreed to 10,000 total to be spent on the honeymoon, flowers, and the rehearsal dinner.  The info I recieved earlier was miscommunication.  So we can split it up for anything.  I just want to use it wisely.  We are thinking - paying the photographer off, using 3000 for flowers, and about 1500 for the rehearsal and the rest toward the honeymoon (1500).
