We just got our quote for the bouquets, boutonierres, and corsages and I’m wondering if it seems reasonable.
Here’s my inspiration photo (yes those purple ones are photoshopped in haha).
And here’s the list of what we are getting:
Attached image. White peonies (3), blush pink garden roses (3), white anemones with dark center, lavender/light purple spray roses, green hypericum berries, white sweet peas, white gardenia (1), pink astilbe (not sure on how many of each of the other flowers will be in there, only know the quantity of peonies, garden roses, and gardenia.)
Bridesmaids’ Bouquets – (5 total)
Same as mine, slightly smaller, WITHOUT the gardenias.
Boutonnieres (14 male – 8 female)
White anemone and lavender/light purple spray rose with hypericum berries and sweet peas.
Wrist Corsages (2)
Same as boutonnieres but slightly larger/fuller with an orchid.
The quote we got was $750. Does that seem like a good price?

@Puppy Love: I think it depends on what area you’re in. I’ve heard some crazy expensive prices for NY and SF. I’m doing my own flowers so I can only tell you what the flowers cost, which was $280 for peony roses, spray roses, hypericum berries, and some other fillers (bouquets: 1 bridal, 1 MOH, 1 BM, 2 nosegay, 10 aisle, and rose petals for my tables). I’m not doing floral boutonnieres though.

That depends…does that quote include tax? I got a lot of quotes from the Los Angeles area and using the average for each individual item I estimated that all of your things should come out to around 725 without tax
So in my opinion..that’s a pretty fair price.
It’s assuming the following:
1. 150 for your bouquet
2. 65 each for bridesmaid bouquets
3. 8 each for bouttonieres
4. 15 for each corsage

That depends. Does it include tax and possible delivery free?
I know that what affects price is if the flower you pick is in season and how big the bloom is. I’m having tulips for my wedding which happen to be spring flowers which makes the price of them nearly 50% cheaper.
I also don’t have fillers in any of the bouqets (bridal & bridal party) which also cut down on the price of my flowers.
My bridal bouquet is $70 while my bridesmaids are $35 each and the boutineers are like $5-8.
