    My flowers cost less than £300 and for that i have got;

    1 hand tied bridal bouquet with lisianthis, gerberas and other purple flowers i cant think of!

    2 brides maids same as mine only smaller

    2 flower girl wands (large gerbera with ribbons etc on)

    5 button holes including a more fancy one for the groom

    2 corsages

    2 thank you bouquets

    and 8 table center pieces (6 large lily vase with a single gerbera, bear grass and coloued cube things in the vase and 2 small square vase with the same types of flowers in my bouquet for top table)

    I live in the North east if that helps as i know prices vary depending on where you are.

    Also get a quote from more than one florist as the first one i went to was extrosionate and the one i went with is the more "up market" if you like out of them both.

    Also providing 40 confetti cones in a basket that will be filled with purple ivory and hot pink petals!!

    £250 in total for:

    My Rose, Freesia and Lisianthus bouquet

    BMs Rose, Freesia and Lisianthus bouquet

    Mum and MILs orchid corsages

    7x Rose button holes

    7x table decorations (orchids)

    2x thank you bouquets for mum and MIL

    I'm only paying for the cost of the flowers as a family friend is doing the arrangements as a gift to us! It has meant I can have some fabulous flowers without spending a fortune! We were quoted well in excess of £500 by a number of florists initially.

    £800 for the following:

    1 x bridal bouquet

    2 x bridesmaid bouquets

    1 x flowergirl bouquet

    2 x pedetals

    10 x table centre piece arrangements with vase hire included

    15 x botton holes

    3 x ladies button holes

    They're all roses- no other flowers. We got a few quotes that ranged from £500 through to £1300. We decided to go with our florist because she understood the look we were wanting and I felt confident she would do a good job on the day.
