How much are you/did you spend on your wedding florals?! I got the quote back today @$1750 and was a little surprised! I never knew florals would be so much! But of course I’m still doing them! Can’t wait!!
We were around the $3000 but included my bouquet, 4 bouquet for bridesmaids, 7 boutonnières, the arch, 8 arrangements for aisle decor, 2 cocktail hour center pieces, 5 table centerpieces, 1 sweetheart table, 1 centerpiece for welcome table for reception. There was a fee rearranging flowers since all the aisle arrangements were then transform for bar, bathroom and Buffett table. Our arch was moved to be used as a photo booth and the florist added some logs on the side. A few extras added in the bill were flowers for welcome sign, a clear piece we rented from them that it was also decorated with flowers.
Here’s an actual photo of our quote. We did our own centerpieces and this also doesn’t include an additional garlands that my aunt kindly added on because she insisted we needed it lol I think 1750 is pretty fair.
Flowers are so expensive! My florist said her typical wedding is $1500. I knew that flowers were not a priority for me or my other half so I told her my budget was $500. She did a good job working within that but ultimately she is doing bouquets and boutineers for $250 and I will be picking up bulk flowers the morning of the wedding and doing centerpieces myself to save money. Flowers can be really amazing when done right so I say if you have the money in the budget go for it and it will be beautiful!
My bouquet that was included with the venue was a 2 dozen rose one but I paid $80 to upgrade to sunflowers and purple lizzies. On their site the 2 dozen rose one was $200 ala cart so it would have been $280 for mine.
I'm ordering from fifty flowers and doing my own arrangements. For 8 bouquets, 14 boutonnieres, 50 ft garland, 25 centerpieces, cake flowers, wine barrel arrangements, and flower petals, it's $1080. I can work with that.
Our wedding planner gave us a heads up. She told us a wedding with 120-130 guest the typical price is $3000. We got a quote for $1800 and thought that was great.
It is my bouquet, 6 bridesmaids, 8 boutonnières, 2 corsages, 2 tussy mussies, greenery for some reception tables/four fireplace mantles/ceiling over the dance floor, and a toss bouquet. The bridesmaid bouquets we are using them as part of the centerpieces for other tables. We chose to decorate with more greenery to help the cost.

We just got a revised quote for $2400. This is for 10 centerpieces, bride bouquet, MOH bouquet, 6 boutonnières, 2 corsages & petals for 2 flower girls. I’ll probably add a foyer arrangement. For what’s its worth I’m in Las Vegas & getting married 10.10.2020.
Flowers are insanely expensive, I was surprised too! We’re in LA so everything here is crazy priced haha we ended up spending just under 4000 for our flowers for the arch, bouquets, boutineers, centerpieces, and sweetheart table.
Honestly? Maybe $20 on six bouquets aha. I went to Michael's and found premade fake bouquets for $2 each. I combined a few for my own and the rest were for my bridesmaids . I didn't have floral centerpieces
$660. But this is an area where we chose to save money by only ordering bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages and lose pedals for the aisle. The bridal parties bouquets will be "re-used" during the reception as each BM has a vase located somewhere (bar, gift table, table, etc) to place their flowers. I made our centerpieces out of fake eucalyptus/white roses thanks to Hobby Lobby (their sales and 40% coupons)!
