    I think it is way too low. I think your bouquet at a minimum will be $75,

    plus $30 each for BM’s = $60

    plus $10 each for bouts = $50

    Centerpieces I think will be $35 or so each = $350

     

    That would be $535 plus labor and tax.

    @busyinboston:  Have you asked them for a quote? You might want to check if the flowers you’re asking for are in season, but I’m inclined to agree with @Miss Leopard and say that $400 is unrealistic. I would have estimated that bridal bouquet to be at least $150 alone, especially in an expensive city like Boston. I think if you increase the budget to around $600 you may be able to get something similar to your inspirations pictures if you’re careful about finding flowers in season.

    i’d just go in and talk to them.  They sell flowers at cost, so they dont charge anything for putting it together.  I got my bouquet there for I think 80, and each bm bouquet was 30.  (I had roses and purple stattice) and I paid a little more cause I had to do a rush order since I went in 2 weeks before my wedding and they couldn’t add it to their regular order.  I got my center pieces at another local market, but if they dont use too many more flowers than a BM bouquet, you should be able to get it for about 30/each.  Boutineres are basically 1 flower so it should be no more than $5 I think.  $400 sounds a bit tight, but if you can up it to $500, I think it might be doable.
