Did you know that the average person spends $1800 on flowers for a wedding? That sounds absolutely insane to me, considering I don’t even like it when my husband buys me a single bouquet of flowers..these things die folks, so let’s not go crazy spending our hard earned money on things that die!
If you’ve got a little DIY skills you can do the flowers for wayyy cheaper than going to a florist. Warehouse stores like Costco & Sam’s Club offer great deals on bulk flowers. You can get 200 Stems of White Roses for $178 or you can purchase an 8pk of a mixed bouquet for only $104.98! Then, all you have to do is cruise Pinterest for a few ideas or check out videos on YouTube about how to put together your own flower bouquets!

A typical bouquet has anywhere from 15-20 flowers in it along with some greenery & filler. All of these can also be purchased in bulk and assembled at home with a few friends and family..and several glasses of wine! Make it a fun event.
Here is a list of bouquets and corsages featured in a typical wedding:
