I looked at peonies for my wedding and at $10 a stem i couldnt even justify having them in my bouquet! I said $2200-$2400. And i’m super jealous! haha your flowers arw qhat i would have done if I could have – but i’m spending $100 on flowers, so i can’t complain 🙂 haha

@Barbiestylez: Your lowest option is more than I would ever be willing to pay on something that dies. $1200 is at the high end of what I would have guessed (I know flowers are expensive, but I didn’t think they were THAT expensive). If it is in the thousands and not hundreds than I am too scared to guess, lol.

I have no idea, I just wanted to pop in and say I’m so f’king jealous you get to have peonies because I LOVE them and probably won’t be able to get them for end of July.

@Barbiestylez: Not sure what the going rate is in Columbus but that amount/types of flowers would run around 4K here. So….I’ll guess you paid around 2K?

No idea but bumping so we can hear the answer!! I actually haven’t a clue about the cost of flowers; ours comes as a package with the venue and we just pick a colour scheme.

I also am clueless about flowers! That’s the last big thing that I need to figure out!
