Cakes and Flowers

So, just when we got past my wedding, my brother and his FI set a date!  They are getting married on 9/17 at the Filter House!!!  Yay for another year of wedding planning! 

Unfortunately her parents are not going to be assisting with the budget, so my gracious mother has offered to help them.  They are needing to go pretty cheap for flowers and cake.  I looked at the vendor list, but there isn't any information on pricing.

For cakes, I know someof you have talked about some great bakers that are very inexpensive.  Are there any that fall in under $300 for 100 people? 

For flowers we are going to make the centerpieces ourselves.  I remember someone saying they used an online wholesale site to have them shipped, and gave great reviews.  I think it was fiftyflowers.com.  Please let me know if you have used them, or have any other suggestions for bulk flowers (not sure what specific flowers she wants to use yet).

Thanks everyone!

    I think the cheapest cakes are Texas Star Bakery and Tabitha Ballard.

    There's also Farms to go or Flower farm (or something like that).  One of our former Knotties (almoyo) recently posted down the page and you might still be able to see her bio and her website.  Also, Marissa did that too.

    My friend made my cake, so I'm not 100% sure on her prices, but it was very moist and tasty.  Let me know if you want her information.

    farmstogo.com has a lot, mostly roses but with a few other types thrown in. Fiftyflowers has a wide selection but are a little bit pricier. Marissa loved farmstogo if I remember right.

    Ugh, I just went to Farmstogo and their site has been under reconstruction since August.  That seems a bit long.

    Thanks for all the leads!

    You should look at Hot Chocolates in Hurst. It's www.hotchocolates.net
    They have pricing on the website.

    Hot Chocolates cake starts at $3.50 a slice! WOW.  I vote Tabitha Ballard too.

    Or go to Facebook and find "Manna's Cakes" - she's a culinary student, but her cakes are pretty awesome.

    Yes, I ordered my flowers from Sam's and was more then pleased! I got 700 white roses for $530 including shipping and the membership.

    The flowers were packaged well and they lasted about a full week after the wedding. For roses no other place (Fiftyflowers.com, Farmstogo.com, or Market Street) could beat that price. And trust me, I did my research!
