@Dreamteam17   it was much cheaper to do my self.  I purchased the small already made bouquets from either Michaels or hobby lobby.  they had different colors each had about 4-5 flowers in them.  I used clippers to open up the seal holding them, then purchased and added other color flowers I liked to make them bigger and to the colors I liked.   wrapped in floral green tape, then glue gunned my ribbon around the green tape to cover it up and seal again.

 

I had received a gift card from my electric company for being good customer,  watched for sales and clipped coupons.   After, all that my only out of pocket expense was about $60.    that was for my bouquet and 7 small bouquets.

with out the discounts I probably would have paid about $130-160

 

it is somewhat time consuming..  if you shop on etsy you can sometimes find great deals on there too. they will customize it exactly how you want.  Even if you find one that states its for a package of 10; you can email them and ask if they can make it smaller package or just one or two items..

 

another idea, bouquet for you, and single flowers for bridesmaids...

Lots of savings, I love it. I have decided to do the bridesmaid bouquets, you became my inspiration :) they had a sale this week at michaels for their summer flowers so it was cheap! my bouquet comes with my package so I don't have to worry about that. Thanks for the instructions I was wondering how I was going to get the ribbon to stay on without getting too messy. Looking forward to the end product. Thanks again !!

55 guests booked plus bride and groom :)
