I am looking for affordable florists in NYC. We are trying to have a budget wedding in NYC (going better than expected) but the price of flowers is tripping me up. I am doing my own centerpieces, but for the bouquets, boutonierres and corsages, I am not entirely comfortable trying it on my own. Plus I live in a one bedroom apt, so space is a factor. Can anyone give me any suggestions? I am looking for:
1 bridal bouquet
2 bridesmaids bouquets
Would love to keep the budget at about $500.

That is completely reasonable. You have choices. I got 3 proposals (I shopped around) and all are within your budget.
Bridal Flower Divas wanted $200 for my bouquet and $100 for bridesmaids, and under $20 for corsage, $10 and under for boutonierres. They come to you.
Flower’s by Richard, in midtown, wanted $100 for my bouquet and $65 for bridesmaids, corsage and boutinerres wereabout the same. You go to him.
I settled on Julie’s Flowers in Brooklyn. She wants $100 for mine, $50 for bridesmaids and, I forgot the others but about the same. You have to go to her.
I am getting centerpieces and escort table, so my prices may be quoted somewhat less than you will be because overall I am spending so much more. But its to give you a ball park idea.
