Probably about $1700… i’m not too big on flowers. Love them, but I want a different feel.

Mine are going to be about 10% of my total budget.

We are having our entire “decor” budget be around 12% of our total budget.  This includes the flowers/boutineers for the girls/guys, flowers for the alter, flowers for the tables at the reception, and the cake table. We also have a bit of money in there for general decor such as lights that we may hang around the porch etc.

My budget is $300 and a few florists have said that it’s doable. I’m getting 6 bouquets, 4 corsages, and 2 boutonnieres.

Our centerpieces are included in the hotel’s package but I’ll write what she normally charges, not what we’re paying.

Centerpieces: $25 (5″ square vase with hydrangea and roses)

Brides’s Bouquet: $65 (hand tied, all roses, 20 stems)

BM bouquets: $35 (hand tied, all roses, 10 stems)

Boutonierres: $6 (rose, no filler/greenery)

Corsages: $8 (single rose pin-on with ribbon)

Mom’s hand-tied posy: $10 (3 roses)

Total we’re paying: $411 including tax & delivery.  Flowers weren’t a priority for me and I love roses.  Good thing because they’re cheap.  I shopped around for a good price as well.  I live in the Boston area which tends to be expensive but there are still good deals around!

@sboston06 – I got a quote for the same exact flowers that was twice as much as yours! Makes me wonder how florists justify charging so much.

My florist quoted me $850 for just bouqets for me and 5 bridesmaids, not even including flowers for church or centerpieces, so i decided to do parasols, they are cute and classy and only $15 each! Skipping flowers for church, nobody remembers them anyways, and my MOH is doing my centerpieces as a gift

Here’s what we’re getting + the costs (in North Carolina) –

Bride’s bouquet – white roses, white double tulips, green hypericum berries, tetra anenomes – $155

Bridesmaid bouquets – green hydrangeas, green roses, green hypericum berries, white double tulips – $65 x 4 = $260

Boutonnieres (groom + groomsmen) – $9.75 x 5 = $48.75

Cocktail tables – milk glass vases with green hydrangeas – $15 x 5 = $75

Centerpieces – green 5″ vases (provided by me) with white hydrangeas, white roses, white spider mums – $28 x 28 = $784

Candles for centerpieces – glass cylinder vases with white pillar candles & vase fillers – $18 x 14 = $252

Ceremony decor – smaller bouquets similar to brides bouquet – $50 x 2 = $100

Tax = $129.79

Total = $1804.54

Hope that helps!
