Got quote from florist - what is your floral budget?

Natalie, on September 27, 2019 at 9:56 AM Posted in Planning 1 9

So one aspect that's been hard to budget for us is floral, including centerpieces. I just couldn't really get a feel for "average" prices. That being said, we were quoted $2,929.00 for all bouquets (8 total), 2 wrist corsages for the moms, and the following centerpiece descriptions:

Centerpiece- Short

Design #1: Duo set of gold mercury candlesticks with vases and floating candles on top + 2 large gold votives, each filled with x-small petite size bouquets of floral + set of 5 tiered vases and votives mixed into design.

Centerpiece- Short

Design #2: 1 clear glass square vase (8" tall x 4" wide) filled with a small+ size bouquet of florals + 2 glass single stem vessels with 2-3 stems in each + set of 5 tiered vases and votives with candles mixed into design. (7 guest tables + 1 sweetheart table)

I really like the company, and we are also booking planning services through them & will most likely use them for floral, I'm just wondering what most brides are paying. We are in San Antonio TX.

(Forgot to mention, this also includes rental of a large wooden arch for our ceremony with Large size floral spray to hang on upper left portion of arc + Medium size floral spray to hang on lower right portion)

    I also asked if we could possibly re-purpose the bridesmaid bouquets by incorporating them into some of the centerpiece designs to save some $.

    That sounds like a great deal! Flowers are so crazy expensive 馃槱 we鈥檙e doing tall centerpieces, 7 bridesmaid bouquets, the bridal bouquet, 11 boutonnieres, an arch, and florals for the staircase and ours is just under $5,000. We鈥檙e in LA so everything is insanely expensive, but flowers are crazy! I think the price you were quoted though sounds pretty reasonable with everything you鈥檙e getting. Unfortunately everything鈥檚 marked up when they hear the word wedding!

    That's pretty reasonable! I was quoted about $2500 for 5 bouquets, I think 8 bouts, 3 or 4 corsages, 2 flower crowns, an arch and decor, aisle runners and chair decorations, plus 8 modest centerpieces.

    I just personally didn't want to pay that much so I'm doing Etsy flowers for the wedding party and arch, and skipping flower centerpieces.

    We paid $4,000 in Denver for wedding party flowers (6 parents, 9 bridesmaids, 10 groomsmen), 8 centerpieces (mix of tall & short), greenery runner, ceiling greenery decor, and a few other arrangements (dessert table, memorial table, etc.)

    To me - this sounds fairly reasonable! I also found trying to estimate floral costs tough! & I'm a BIG flower person so I was just anticipating paying around $2,500-$3,000.

    We are paying (sorry can't remember exact cost) around $2,400 - our package includes 4 bouquets, 4 corsages, 6 boutonnieres, fresh petals for aisle & flower girl, 4 flower crowns, florals for arch, 8 centerpieces (varying in size), lots of additional greenery on tables, minimal flowers for brownie bar & guestbook table and a garland for the sweetheart table.

    Sounds like a decent deal to me. We are paying about $2700 for our florals... my bouquet, 3 bridesmaids, 1 jr bridesmaid, flower girl, 3 groomsman, 4 parents, plus florals and rentals for tables (forgot how many tables). The price also includes delivery and teardown. At first it felt like a lot for "just flowers" but I think they are going to be beautiful in the space and I don't have to do a thing to set up or take down. Good deal in my book!
