I know most of the posters are probably from the Chicagoland area or getting married in or around Chicago. I'm getting married on June 16, 2007. I wanted to let you guys know where to go for good flower prices. Go to Aberdeen's flower shop. www.aberdeens.com
They have a few locations throughout Chicagoland, but they are the best price and you get what flowers you want. They've been around for a long time. My mom got her flowers from there in 1980, my cousin got hers from there in 1987, and my grandma got hers from there in 1957, i believe it was. They are great to deal with and you can't beat $800 for a bridal bouquet, throw away bouquet, 3 bridesmaid bouquets (any after that are $55), 2 mother's corsages, boutineers for the grooms, broomsmen, and fathers, 2 church arangements, blessed Virgin Mary bouquet, 10 bows and streamers decorating church aisle, and a bridal consultant. They also like to throw in a few extras, just give them a call. And they book up fast!!
Hope this helps!
