Good news! One of the other bridesmaids suggested that to save some money we make our own bouquets and the groomsmen can help make their own boutonnieres, still buying the bride's bouquets and the groom's boutonniere. Sounded like a great plan to me, our bouquets are really simple (just 6 white roses each, so three dozen and some ribbon), and the bridesmaid who suggested can get a good discount through her work on some very nice flowers (I know we got them for our last friend's wedding!).
Of course MOB is well...not pleased with that idea. What will people think?! Well, nothing if we don't tell them. And if we do, oh wow what a great way to save money. I'm guessing. Bride suggested silk a while back, that went over as well as the make our own plan.
Flowers...who knew they were such a big deal? Got her off my used dress...though she probably assumes I went out and bought a new one because why would I not she told me to after all. Eh, the emails stopped I'm happy.
