How much did you pay for flowers from a florist?

Hi all! I'm starting to get quotes from florists and I'm just curious what everyone else is paying for one? I'm especially interested to know if you're in an area that's super popular for weddings so I can make a comparison. I was super nervous to look into flowers, especially because friends who have gotten married in this area kept warning me about these outrageous prices, but the quotes came in much lower than I thought...I think I got a steal and the florist has a good rep. I'm getting a lot of greenery and that also cut down on my price a great deal. Thanks!

Edit: I know not everyone is planning to get a florist. Unfortunately I'm not creative/crafty enough to put together my own bouqet and decor, but I'd love to hear your prices as well!

    I was quoted between 1,300-3,000 from different florists for very minimal flowers as my venue doesnt need a lot.

    Ours were close to $6k but we had flowers everywhere. Fewer (and different) flowers would mean cheaper quotes though!

    The numbers from the updated proposal I recently received.

    Bridal bouquet: $150

    Bridesmaids bouquets: 3 x $65 each

    Bouts: 11 x $10 each

    Corsages: 3 x $20 each

    "Altar" piece: $150

    Reception centerpieces: 9 x $80 each

    Cake flowers: $35

    It comes to about $1,500 including taxes, excluding delivery. It's a higher-than-average priced florist in a lower-than-average cost area.

    $850 for everything - including flowers for the cake, my centerpieces (I had the vases) all the BP flowers, and an alter piece. I found my florist through a chamber of commerce event. Even though they are located 30 miles away, they are waving the delivery fee!

    Check your local chamber!

    We're at $625 for a bridal bouquet, 4 bridesmaid bouquets, 7 bouts, and 7 simple centerpieces. Oh and a delivery fee. I am going to be adding 4 coursages though, so that'll bring it up to around $700. I'm in the Denver metro area.

    Location and the types of flowers that you chose makes a difference in cost. I am in NOVA area, paying $2100 for the following -

    1 bridal bouquet

    7 BM bouquets

    13 bouts

    4 wrist corsages

    2 flower crowns

    FG petals

    Arbor florals

    2 ceremony arrangements

    Enough flowers for 20 tables

    Fresh flowers for the cake

    Once all is said and done I am expecting my cost to go up to $2200 - $2300 after possibly adding additional centerpiece florals, a sweetheart table arrangement, and bunches of baby's breath (I may go through Costco for the baby's breath).

    Outside of philly:

    $185 bride bouquet

    $35 each for mother corsages

    $10 each for bouts

    (Centerpieces were included with venue and no BP)

    Types of flowers can affect prices too. Ours were mostly lilies and Cala lilies with some lilacs and lisianthems

    One tip I will share is try to find a florist that works out of their home. The first florist I looked at had a shop front, took 3 weeks to get me a quote, and had prices that were about 30% higher than the one I booked, who works out of her home. She also gave us a much more in depth and personal consultation than the first florist.

    All bridal bouquets and bridesmaids bouquets and GM bouts are all ecoflower. They made my bouquet and then we got loose flowers for the BP flowers to make our own. Those we got on a huge sale so it was $50 for mine, a mini replica, my FH bout, and 200 loose flowers.

    For actual flowers these were the prices:

    Fathers bouts $10

    Mothers/grandmothers corsage $20 each

    Centerpiece 1: $70 each

    Centerpiece 2: $90 each

    Vines for bar and sweetheart table

    Decor and drapery for entrance

    Decor and drapes for deck

    Drapes for the ceremony space

    Vines for aisle lining

    Overall we came in at $1200ish. I go back in Wednesday to make sure I like everything.

    It so depends on what you get and where you are. For ~$850 I'm getting

    My bouquet

    5 boutonnières

    A corsage for FMIL

    25 centerpieces (mason jar sized, there's mainly 2 tops)

    6 hugeass basket arrangements for food stations

    I'm in NE Ohio, and the most exotic flower I'm using is hydrangea.

    I'm in the DFW area in Texas and we are paying $1100 for ours. We don't have any for reception so it's basically for ceremony price only.
