How much would someone in Chicago say is typical for floral arrangements and reception decorations? I just received a quote for 11,000!!! I nearly died at that. I did not want to spend over 3,500. Any suggestions for good, reasonable places?

    Well I’m getting married in Arlington heights and I’m paying $3,000, but I’m having primarily greenery for my centerpieces as I already have marble and terrariums for centerpieces. This high price isn’t really unheard of in Chicago, but I would DEFINITELY look around. I’m using a Perfect Petal in Arlington heights. I also really likes mkuzma designs in Brookfield, her pricing was very appropriate!

    Hey Stephanie! Congratulations on your engagement!

    The quote you received does seem quite high, but I’m sure this is dependent on what type of flowers were selected, and the amount that is required to achieve the look you want. It’s no surprise that fresh flowers are expensive. If you love this florist, perhaps you could ask for a second quote with different flowers but the same color scheme?

    I checked the WeddingWire Flower Cost Guide for Chicago and linked it so you can check it out too.

    What type of flowers do you want to include in your bouquets?

    I second what ChiBride said, we are also using A Perfect Petal in Arlington Heights! Rebecca is great to work with and we are spending about $2,500.

    Congratulations! We just got married on July 26. We hired CATTELYA floral and design on wedding wire. We paid $1750 for the flowers and the arch. Candy did an amazing job.
