We’re still negotiating. I was thinking of doing the flowers myself but the Fiance thought that would be too stressful so now I’m just buying the roses to decorate the chairs. lol. We’re doing 12 centerpieces – half tall, half low. The main flowers are roses and I wanted a very lush look. So far we’ve been quoted around $3000 for just those 12 centerpieces. It seems expensive to me but they are large centerpieces and include candelabras and mercury glass. This is the look we are going to recreate:

I paid 200 for flowers and 300 for candelabras and they were tall “30” inch tall and they were vintage and beautiful. We did everything dyi so that cut the cost by a lot

This is the breakdown of our floral costs.

  • Bridal bouquet $175
  • Toss bouquet included
  • 4 Bridesmaids $216
  • Flower petals $10
  • 8 Boutonnieres $114
  • 3 Corsages $84
  • Large Twin Alter Arrangements $395
  • Guestbook table $45
  • 10 Centerpiece upgrades $250
  • Flower petals for the aisle $75

Total: $1364

Our venue included the centerpiece rentals (candelabras) so that price is just upgrading the flowers on them, if they hadn’t been included it probably would have been an additional $400 ($40 each, so about $65 per centerpiece with the flowers) and that isn’t any flowers for the aisle, just up front.

@maplemag:  Thanks! I never thought I’d care about the flowers but then we decided to get married in a garden and I really wanted the feel of bright spring flowers everywhere to match the garden. My florist was really great with giving us different kinds of flowers and luckily getting married in spring, there was a  huge selection of flowers in season, so the cost was a little lower.

I am spending roughly $300 on flowers. I am filling all my milkglass vases plus my bridal bouquet and the only drawback is I am picking them up. She would come and set them up but it would be an additional $80. I am buying mine from a local flower farm.




It is definitely saving us a ton and I don’t mind using what is in season.

ETA: I arranged these flowers and frankly I suck at it. The grower does an amazing job.

I spent 1200 on flowers (calla lillies and orchids)…. my bouquet, 3 bridesmaids, 3  hairpieces, 3 mom corsages, 2 gma corsages, 6 bouts… and enough curly willow brances and orchids to make 12 centerpieces and 2 altar arrangements. I saved money by cutting out the 300 delivery fee by picking them up myself.
