Is this a doable budget?

I know I'm prematurely thinking about this but is $1000 a doable budget for the following:

 

1 bridal bouquet

4/5 bridesmaid bouquets

1 groom Boutonnieres

4/5 groomsmen boutonnieres

2 mom flowers

2 dad boutonnieres

2 grandfather boutonnieres

2 grandmother flowers

2 godmother flowers

2 godfather boutonnieres

2 alter pieces

place card table (arrangement or rose petals)

Cake/Cake table (rose petals)

 

 

Also can you think of anything I'm missing; I'm not having my florist do centerpieces?

    Totally, but where are you going?  I went to http://search.comcast.net/?cat=Web&con=homepage&q=santos+florist+nj and got all that plus all the centerpieces for  under 2K, you may want the "runner" for the church?  I'm taking one of my church displays for the sign-in table at the reception and donating the other, although everyone is saying to put it in the ladies room.

    I don't have a florist yet but recommendations that fit my budget would be great too.

    I used Avenue Flowers and spent 2 k on all of the above plus 20 tall centerpieces, candles and sweetheart table decorations.  I also had 7 BM and 8 GM.  The centerpieces were $60 each so subtracting them, I spent $800 on the rest of the stuff (that you need).

    Elizabeth.  They were by far the most reasonable prices I could find.  There are pictures of my flowers in my link.

    Definitely doable- just have to do your work and look around for a reasonable florist. Good luck!

    It's definitely doable.  But it also depends on what flowers you use as well.

    For just slightly over 3k, I'm getting:

    1 Bridal bouquet
    1 MOH bouquet
    7 BM bouquets
    1 Groom Bout
    1 BM Bout
    8 GM Bouts
    2 MOB/G corsages
    2 FOB/G bouts
    12 principal sponsors corsages
    12 principal sponsors bouts
    20 centerpieces (3 different centerpieces)
    15-20 pillar candles
    1 bouquet to Mother Mary
    1 throw away bouquet

    I have to revise the list soon b/c we're going to need at least 2 more centerpieces and 4 more bouts/corsages.  So I think it's a good price for what we're getting. 

    I'm using Laurie from Laurelwood Designs in Washington Township.

    Oh yeah, and flowers for the cake as well.

    We're using mostly orchids, roses, and gerber daisies.

    contact Stephanie from Floral Expressions.  She is very affordable,  I think I'm getting all that plus centerpieces for about 1700.  floralexpressions-sk.com
