Realistic floral budget in Maine

Hi all,
I am meeting with a florist tomorrow to discuss our wedding flowers for next September. What is a “reasonable” amount to spend on a wedding for 150, farm tables, outside wooded ceremony, sailcloth tent. I know this can vary wildly but have no idea where to start budget wise....1k? 5k? 10?? I’d like it to look like a bohemian garden party

    Hi there Jen!

    The style/theme of your wedding sounds gorgeous!

    According to the WeddingWire cost guide, most couples in your area spend between $663 - $2,450 on wedding flowers, with the average flowers cost coming in at $1,200.

    You can get a breakdown of these costs on the guide, including how much each bouquet cost, how much of your budget to allocate to flowers, services a wedding florist provide, questions to ask a florist, etc.

    Do you have any particular flowers you love and would love to have included by the florist?

    My wedding is in September and we are holding it in NH, so close by. For a guest list of 150, our floral cost is 2k. That is including 6 bouquets, 10 boutonnieres, 3 corsages, 2 flower crowns, garland for all tables with loose flowers to place throughout, and a few floral pieces for the ceremony and reception decor. I would expect anywhere from 2k-4k!

    Hi! Our wedding is September 14th. We are using Maine Street Florist in Buxton, and we were quoted right around $550 for delivery, set up, and the florals. We requested 1 bridal bouquet, 3 bridesmaids bouquets, 10 "fish bowl" centerpieces where they are only supplying the florals/greenery for it, greenery for the buffet table, and florals/greenery for the ends of the pews. We requested smaller and simpler bouquets and arrangements, but we are very happy to work with Janet! Her attitude is amazing, and she has an eye for arrangements!
