My ex boyfriends mom was a florist, and she was so happy I wasnt marrying her son, he was a huge mama's boy, that she did my flowers for free! He sat outside the church in his truck and called to tell me if I wanted to run he was there waiting for me, yeah he was a creepy guy, told me he was in love with me on our first date!

I had an amazing wedding and kept the cost down and than my parents gave me a huge cash gift. I enjoyed that more as we had fun decorating our new home

My parents spent 12K 18 years ago.  It was my Mommy's idea though.

Spoil your daughter.   You do this once for her.

I couldn't even imagine spending $500 for flowers, let alone $5,000.
