Ok, good to know. My wedding will be in Maine. I just need bouquets, boutonnières (spelling?), and a few other miscellaneous things for the ceremony and reception. Aisle runner, maybe some table runners.
@hol that sounds like a great price. Is it better to have the florist in the same town as your ceremony and reception? I have only looked in that town and do not have a ton of options. If you go a town over they must charge for travel? Looks like I have some more researching to do
$1800 in Boston (including taxes and delivery/set-up fees) for:
1 Bridal bouquet
1 Larger MOH bouquet
5 bridesmaid bouquets
4 mini bouquets for moms
4 bouts for dads
7 bouts for FH/groomsmen
8 mini vases for cocktail hour
2 pedestals with large flower arrangements for ceremony
1 pumpkin with our monogram carved into it (...my little splurge haha. I had to!)
I had some sticker shock at this considering we are doing our own centerpieces and I always assumed that's there the real cost was, but many friends who got married in the Boston area spent $5k-ish including centerpieces, so I guess I'm doing pretty well on that regard haha.
@alison I live in Boston too! We decided for a Maine wedding for several reasons, but cost has definitely worked in our favor. Everything is so much more expensive in the city, but I'm sure your wedding will be amazing!
I am in Northern California. My quotes were all over the place! First place wanted $4,000. Second place wanted $6,000! Contacted my friends mother in law and she's charging me $2,700. Whew!
I spent $850. My bouquet is front page magazine inspired (in other words I went way overboard on it) so it's $175 by itself. 4 bm bouquets, flower girl, 2 mother corsages- pearl bracelet type- , 6 boutineers, 8 table centerpieces, & wedding arch greenery & lace. Bridesmaid & flower girls are actually lanterns with glass taken out and flowers overflowing. I'm in Knoxville tn & we tend to be cheaper on everything than other parts of the country
I purchased silks off etsy and spent about $550 for hydrangeas, roses and Calla lilies.
I got six bouts for the guys, a flower girl basket, two alter sprays, six bridesmaid bouquets and two mother's corsages and bride's bouquet and six centerpieces for the reception tables. I'm in California.
I won a 10% off coupon at a bridal show, but it came out to just under $900 for 4 bridesmaids bouquets, 1 bridal bouquet, 1 bouquet to toss, and some boutonnières/corsages and an arrangement for the ceremonial archway. This is for San Diego, CA.
