Bridesmaid Bouquet Ideas

Hi Everyone!
I just received a quote from my florist. For my Matron of Honor plus 4 BMs bouquets it will be $85/each not including tax. This would total $456. It would be a small replica of my bouquet and they would have a ribbon wrapped around it. These would be repurposed as centerpieces for the reception. I think that is too much to spend on BMs bouquets.
To save on costs, I’m thinking of ordering a bundle of white Calla Lilly stems from Sam’s Club (35 stems for $60). I could then take about 3 or 5 Lily stems wrap a piece of ribbon around them and use them for the BMs bouquets and these would be repurposed as centerpieces. The remaining lilies from the order could be used as centerpieces on my sweetheart table. By doing this idea NO the BMs bouquet wouldn’t match mine and I’m fine with that but I would rather pay $60 vs paying over $450 from the florist. Has anyone else did something different with their BM bouquet vs their bridal bouquet especially to save on costs?Here is an inspiration picture of what I’m thinking about doing.

    I love calla lillies! Very simple and elegant. I haven’t done much research into getting flowers from sams club, but is there a way to order them for a specific date? To guarantee they’ll have these in stock and make sure they’re available 2-3 days prior to the wedding. I say if you have the time, go for it!

    Hi Natalie, I agree Calla Lillies are very elegant. Yes Sam’s Club do advise of what delivery date you should choose based on your wedding date. For a Saturday wedding they advise to choose a delivery date of Thursday. Plus, one of my friends would take on the task of putting them together with the ribbon for each BM.

    Calla lilies are a personal favorite of mine, so I’m a little biased but I think it’s a great idea! We have to cut costs where we can!

    Haha Exactly Samantha. Plus with the cost of the rest of my florals and everything else I just feel I can easily cut the costs on my BM bouquets and have something that is just as beautiful yet cost effective.

    That seems very doable!


    Also, a single lily stem as the BM bouquet would be very elegant.

    Thanks ladies! I was hoping it wouldn’t look too far off with my girls having a different bouquet than mine. But again looking at the savings I’ll take it. 😊
