    Hols, have you looked in to a local Costco doing some of the bm bouquets (gerbera daisies) for you? I have heard that their prices are very reasonable. Just a thought! :)

      This is just an idea in my head but maybe they could carry little pales with flower petals and drop them as the flowers girl would. Then you would have an aisle with lots of flowers and you could use the pales as your centerpieces and put candels or something in there!

        Kathy reminded me, but my sister made my bouquet for my AHR from a bouquet at Costco. We bought them the day before and she just picked a few of the nicer ones, trimmed the ends and wrapped ribbon around them. They were actually nicer then what I had at the resort. So that would def be a cheap option, and if you are doing all one flower, it doesn't even really take any skill to be able to put them together.

          What about those little pomander ball things, similar to what a flower girl would carry?

          I've seen some DIY sites that make them with silk flowers or paper/tissue:
          DIY - Pomander Ball - SHARISOSWEET's Black Wedding by Color Blog
          DIY - Crepe Paper Pomander Balls - MISSTIFF's Black Wedding by Color Blog

          Hmmm...now I've just given myself another DIY project! lol

          btw, I think you can also purchase the bigger ones at Wal-Mart

            I worked in a floral shop so I have actually dont flowers before but I dont want to add any more DIY but I think I will be on this one.

            I was thinking about Sams and Costco today. They actually have really nice flowers!
            I helped do a wedding last year that they got flowers from Sams!

              I wonder if they girls would do this.....I like re-using things for the head table.
