If you're getting married in the near future, there's a chance you're about to drop a lot of money on flowers. Like, $2,379, to be exact. According to annual wedding survey, couples were spending nearly $2.5K on floral arrangements alone in 2017.
That is a ton of money. Something that could cover, let's say, your honeymoon. Or your mortgage for a month. Or a home renovation project. So instead of spending all that cash on an item that's going to die (they're beautiful, I get it!), consider these surprising alternatives.
To start, wholesale club will gladly be your wedding florist for $90. For not even a hundred bucks, you'll get eight handcrafted bouquets of yellow roses.

If you're down to spend a bit more, you can head to for a larger selection of flowers including bouquets and corsages, which start around $100.

Lastly, at Costco, you can buy their arrangement for $450. It's a 20-piece package with five bouquets, six corsages, six buttonholes, two centerpieces, and a rose petal bud.

Turns out, you don't need to spend everything you've got on flowers to have beautiful arrangements.
