WTH!!!???? Flowers are annoying!

OK, so I met with two florists this weekend thinking I was going to like one of them for sure. So the first one we hated and the second one we loved, but he just sent over his estimate and it is 5 times as much as our budget!!!!  WTH!??

I'm willing to go all DYI on this stuff, I only have nine tables so I think it's doable, but I'm afraid of what will happen that day with setting up. Can someone recommend a dirt cheap (but beautiful, lol) florist? Our budget is 1k (secretly 1.5k) but we only have 9 tables, 2 bridesmaids and one groomsmen. Shouldn't that be possible!!!??

Also, if anyone is buying wholesale and can recommend something please do, but let me know what are you planning for arranging the stuff that day.....thanks!!!

    Try creations by blanca - 954-972-1993. She's great and really inexpensive. Flowers were the worst for me - they weren't a huge priority and everyone was either rude or too pricey. She fit our budget perfectly and had really great ideas of how to save. She quoted me just over 2,000 but that's for 15 tables, 8 bridesmaids, 8 groomsmen, 2 junior bm, 1 jr groomsmen, and 2 ring bearers and flowers for the moms, grandmas, and dads, and ceremony flowers. Also she had these blinged out candels I fell in love with! I was really not into her website and almost didn't meet her because of it but I was much more impressed with her and her showroom. Good luck!

    What kind of centerpieces are you looking for?  I had 13 (mixed high and low) tables, 4 bridesmaids, 4 groomsmen, 2 extra bouts, 3 coursages, my bouquet, 2 large pieces for the ceremony that we moved inside for the reception, sweetheart table and cake flowers for $1,650...  There are several people that can work with your budget.  I went through several rude and overpriced people too.  One person didn't even give me a proposal after we met.  She just laughed at my budget.

    I was'nt happy with flowers by Bianca. I do however have a terrific lady who has a shop at the swap shop. Her name is Dolly. She does beautiful work. I too am having a small wedding and she only cost me $263.00. Of course she is not doing our personal flowers but that includes the price of my roses, hydrangea and orchids for that. She is however doing beautiful center pieces for our tables. And she even showed me a sample. Her numbers are (954)600-3792 or (954)600-3795. I bet she can do them for half your budget. She is terrific and she saved the day for me.
