Response: You have done nothing wrong. In fact, you are being quite generous by offering to pay for the bar and the limos. Today, there are no traditional things that each side of the family must pay for. Instead, just as you have done, each family offers to pay for certain things or they give the couple a sum of money to spend as they need.
I would ask your son why the parents and grandparents will not have flowers. If he responds that it is your responsibility to provide them, which it isnt, you can still go ahead and offer to pay for them and get them ordered.
There may be another issue, however. If there are step-parents and grandparents on both sides, the number of flowers and who should get one may be an issue. I just spent time with a bride who has two sets of parents on each side, making 8 sets of grandparents. They dont know how many will attend and who to purchase for.
You still have plenty of time to fix the situation if the bride is expecting you to pay.
