I am not sure where you live but I got a great deal on my flowers in San Francisco. We went to a flower market, where we got all of the flowers, which included 4 boquets, 5 coursages, 8 boutinneires and 3 arrangements for $250. We hired a student who was enrolled in a flower arranging class at the local college to arrange them. We paid a total of $350 for flowers that might have otherwise cost us thousands. Also, we ordered our wedding cake from Albertsons instead of a specialized bakery. Our cost for a 3 tier cake that feeds 200 = $150.00. Delivery and set up was included in this price. A similar cake from a bakery, including delivery and set up + $900.00.
