  • About $800. My flowers were the only thing I really wouldn't cheap out on. I wanted real flowers that looked really nice. I had my boquet dried and framed and its hanging on the wall in my living room lol. We only spend about $4000 on the wedding total though.

  • when we renew our vows (in 1 year and 9 months) I have set a $350 limit for flowers. most likely i will be doing my own arrangements though so probably not even that much.

  • My parent have a huge back yard and My mother and I planted our owe flowers and we paid next to nothing. It pays off when your parents live on a moutain top.

  • $0. we had a beautiful inexpensive wedding. i didn't see the point of spending all that money on flowers - although some find them very important. my MOH bought me a simple bouquet of calla lillies for me and some other pretty flowers for herself.

  • We spent $700 on flowers. We didn't actually pay for flowers but that's how much they cost.

  • Less than $100. A friend from church made beautiful bouquets from silk flowers for my bouquet ( he even put my grandmother's handkerchief in it for "something old") and for my bridesmaids' bouquets. Everyone thought they were real flowers, not silk because they looked so nice. I had 3 live arrangements in the church, one was flowers and 2 were just ferns in the church, but they weren't big or showy, I don't like big fancy things.

  • I only spent about $130. We got married in the mountains here in GA where the Mountain Laurel's were blooming all over the place. So, i used a bunch of those. I also bought a huge blue hydrangea bush. It was so much cheaper than buying them at a flower shop. I spent $20 on my bush & i had more flowers than you could imagine. The bush had about 20 HUGE blooms on it. I also bought daisy's, small white roses & blue delphiniums. I had plenty of flowers! They were gorgeous!

  • it was less than $100. I got married outside at a cabin in the mountains in Gatlinburg right by the river and it was already so beautiful. Too many floweres really wouldve been over-doing it.
