    WOW, I haven't priced flowers yet but I might have under estimated how expensive they are. I thought I could find something for $50, I might need to redue my flower budget. I read that one bride mixed real and fake flowers and no one could tell.

    Here are fake flowers from hobby lobby for $20, if this could be mixed with a better ribbon and spiced up a bit that might be an idea. I also heard that you have to make sure your real flowers don't bleed on your dresses.

    I'm sorry to say but these flower shops must be jacking up the prices b/c they know we are getting married. At work I use 1-800-flowers to sends arrangements to people that had a baby. I spend $75 and get amazing flowers, a crystal vase with free delivery. So compared to that I just don't see where the money is going?

    Mine will be $319.  Ridiculous I know.  Vegas wedding chapel up charges and labor intensive wiring of orchids adds up.  I wish I didn't have champagne taste.

    WOW!!! I'm really surprised by these prices as well. I plan on DIYing my bouquet which will have 2 dozen red roses with burgundy dahlias and peacock feathers mixed in. I don't plan on more than $30 to complete all of that.

    Maybe flowers aren't just that important to me, but I just plan to stop by a local rose shop a couple of days before and purchase my 2 dozen which won't cost more than $20.

    Of course I plan to practice ahead of time.
