Hello ladies! I know this has been asked a lot, but I guess I'm hoping to get more up-to-date repsonses and opinions. Like all brides, or most brides, I am trying to do everything I can to keep the budget as low as possible and so I'm toying with a few different ideas. We're not doing floral center pieces, or I may add some float flowers to the bowl with the floating candles. What I do need is: bride's bouquet, 3-4 bridesmaid's bouquets (I haven't decided on my complete WP yet), groom's boutonniere, 5-7 other boutonniere's (WP and fathers), and 2 corsages for the mothers, +/- 6 other corsages/boutonniere's for the grandparents and for FSIL.
Here are the ideas that I am considering
1. DIYing the flowers. Would this be too many flowers to DIY?
2. Making the bouquets, but ordering the corsages/boutonniere's from a florist/grocery store.
3. Going to a florist for the required flowers and getting the 6 extra corsages/boutonniere's from some place cheaper (Jewel or Dominicks) depending on price.
4. Getting everything from a florist.
I'm looking for a bouquet that looks like this, possibly with more pink with smaller, but similar bouquets for the WP:
So, what are your thoughts and who would you recommend regarding a florist? FYI, I'm looking to spend $500-$600 for that...
