1 bridal bouquet
3 BM bouquets
1 throwaway bouquet
Flowers included a special type of roses (not sure their name), orchids, stephanotis and magnolia leaves (maybe other stuff that I don't recognise? ). The flowers alone were about $450 I think?

& 1x complementary throw away.
Mine were roses with a mixture of white, pale pink & hot pink.
This is great considering one quote was for $700 and andother for $550.

Thanks all for you posts, girls! There really is a huge difference depending on where you go, and what flowers you are having. I have definatley decided to go with my first quote:
$288 - this is for:
My Bride's bouquet
2 X BM bouquets
4 X corsages
1 X buttonhole
Complimentary throw-away bouquet
and delivery on the day.
And the lady is amazing, too - and she also does all the flowers aleady for my reception venue (included in reception price), and is able to co-ordinate all the reception flowers to mine!

I got four quotes from florists on I-DO, so you could say that they are the popular bridal specialist florists and they come recommended. I was shocked by their quotes. They all averaged at $200 for my bouquet alone and $98 for the bridesmaids. As our wedding is pretty small we have a small budget and I couldn't justify spending almost $800 on flowers.
I went to my local florist near where I live and I got her to quote for exactly what the others had. She quoted $190 for everything! That is my bouquet, bridesmaid and three buttonholes. She also quoted for flower petals and optional centrepieces if we wanted them. So I am going to go with her. PLUS I will save on delivery as I will just collect them myself on the morning on the wedding as she is near by.
I think it pays to talk to your local florist, you would surpised what price you can get and they must be good at their job or they wouldn't be in business. I think some of these 'designer' florists are just charging you for their name.

Bridal bouquet of white frangipanis and hot pink lilliums
BM bouquet of hot pink and white frangipanis
3 frangipani button holes- 2 white, 1 pink
5 single hot pink lilliums (have used these to make fscinator and for decorating FG dress)
postage from melbourne included
I have then also spent another $80 on silk frangipani heads for table decos and cake.
this included 2 white stems and 1 pink stem with 8 flowers each of better quality for the cake (will be taken off stems)
and 60 single fower heads to go around our centerpieces.
so a total of $196. I am very happy with that.

If you know anyone who can do them for you, I imagine you can save a fair bit of $$$.
