Alternative to bridesmaids bouquets...

Another thing you can do to save costs is have your bouqets do double duty. I'm thinking of doing that myself. After the ceremony I will have someone put them into vases and they will be part of the center pieces (floral centerpeices are like $60 at my venue). So you still have to buy the bouqets but at least you will save a bit on the center pieces.

If you want to go the flower route I would just have your bridesmaids do a single flower.

I like the idea of reusing the bridal bouquets. I am planning on having approximately 100 guests and 8 bridesmaids. So, reusing their bouquets to double as the centerpieces is a GREAT idea, especially since the resort is charging $75/centerpiece and $75/bouquet. That means that I would be paying half of their quote if I could just get them to transfer the flowers from the bouquet binding into the glass cylinders.
Thanks Tissey for the idea!

Thanks. I will check them out too. I've been searching ways to lower the costs of the flowers. I also looked into a florist near the resort where we're getting married. I'm just waiting on their response now.

I like the pinwheel and parasol idea. I am more inclined to the parasols though. I was originally going to get my bouquet in clay and give my MOH my free bouquet since it was her. Now it looks like I will definitely have 1 maybe 2 bridesmaid as well so I think I may do parasols since I was going to do that for my flower girl to eliminate the costs of flowers.

I think I might use parasols. I think they just look so neat!
