I recently got a quote back from our wedding decor planner for decor rentals, florals and centerpieces.
chandeiler and 6 large 40 foot fabric swags for ceiling
25 table centerpieces
2 large floral arrangment for the church
7 floral bouquets and 15 boutineers, toss bouquet and flower girl petals.
the grand total is $2205.00. for this price the planner will set up ceiling decor and take down the next day. Arrange all the florals and centerpieces and help with any table linens and decor.
is this a fair price? My FI seems to think it is crazy to rent a chandielier and ceiling drapping for $600 and claims we can find it cheaper and do all the work ourself. it would be such a load off our shoulders to have someone do the ceiling decor and help with the centerpieces.

Wow, that seems really low to me for all of that. I am getting pretty close to the same thing without the chandelier and ceiling decor and spending over $4,500.

I know this is all relative to your area and the cost of living. As PP noted, this is absurdly cheap for our area. We got probably 1/10 of that for $3k. Of course, this is also based on what materials/flowers are involved.

I thought this was a good price as everything in my area prices are inflated like crazy!
we will be using all real flowers, hydrangas, Garden roses and Orchids.

I think you’re getting a pretty good deal. We ordered just about the exact same thing from our florist/decorator except we had 45 centerpieces instead of 25, and ours cost $3,700. But I’m in ND where things are typically cheaper than most places.
