Hrmm, depends on what city you are in. Mine was a very well respected florist in Chicago and my prices were approximately:

Bridal Bouquet – $140
Bridesmaids – $80
Mom’s wristlet – $30
Boutenniers – Under $10
Centerpieces – $60ish for low and high

I’m basing these off my memory, but its pretty close!

I think the centrepiece prices sound fairly reasonable but I expect you could find a bouquet and corsages/bouts for cheaper from a good quality florist.  I had a medium-sized floral budget and here’s how it’s all breaking down:

$150 for my bridal bouquet (the one splurge item in my floral budget): cymbidium orchids, roses, and lisianthus

$50 each for my BM bouquets: roses, lisianthus, and dahlias

$10 each for boutonnieres: roses (one orchid bout for groom, the GM’s are using roses.)

We’re skipping corsages altogether since the mothers don’t want any.

$45 each for low centrepieces: dahlias and roses.  The $45 price includes rental of vases.

$250 each for two large altar arrangements set on pillars.  Price includes rental of pillars and vases.

1 tall gift table arrangement for $35.  Have no idea what flowers will be used for this one and really don’t care!

That’s not to say you need to find a new florist – try negotiating or give her your budget for each item and see if she can work within that.

that sounds pretty reasonable except for your bouts which i think should be about 10 bucks. my medium sized ceterpieces are 85-100 and my bouquet is about 180.
