wow, i feel like i should have started researching sooner....

especially finding out all of this information on this message board. seeing some of the prices you guys are spending on dj's and video/photog makes me feel like im getting ripped off a little. :(  i know its all dependent on packages and what not but i dont really think im going too overboard with those things..... i did a little bit of research but not much. so before i also spend a ridiculous amount of money, would anyone mind giving me an estimate of what flowers would cost (my bouquet, BM bouquet, boutineers, alter arrangements -for church, and centerpieces). thanks so much :)

    I felt the same way, so I am no good at giving costs and stuff, I went with reccos from friends, coworkers etc, which I am very glad I went with, but coming to this board 8 months out I was able to push on my DIY stuff, which helped me save.  Sorry I can't be of help but thought maybe it would make you feel better that there is someone else that realized that after the fact :)
