need cheaper flowers...PIP

Can anyone suggest an alternative to the orchids in this bouquet? I don't know a lot about flowers and my grocery store florist hasn't offered a less expensive alternative..TIA![img]http://i38.tinypic.com/303iich.jpg[/img]

    Maybe some small-ish white lilies? Search google images for "white asiatic lilies"... Or, you could use a different type of orchid... the pictured orchid is a cymbidium orchid. Dendrobium orchids are much cheaper... they're smaller, but, you could do a grouping of three or so - instead of a single bloom.

    White lilies, hypericum berries, seeded eucalyptus. That "viney" greenery and "branchy" looking stuff looks really neat with the grapevine wreath material and feathers.

    yes, cymbidium orchids are way more expensive. have you looked for these online,? there are awesome deals at wholesale prices online. they deliver fresh flowers to your door! and them you can give them to your florist. dendrobium orchids are also a cheaper option, as well as Asiatic lilies. now Peruvian lilies are much more cheaper flowers and they come from the orchid;s family. Calla lilies could also work with this bouquet.
