I was quoted a price of around ~$850 for flowers. This includes $160 for 8 bunches of curly willow to put in my FIs 8 handmade pottery vases which are 12 inches high and 4×4 at the opening.
Am I better off just going to whole foods the day before to get something to put in the vases? $20 for a bunch of curly willow seems a bit high to me.

You could just order flowers from Whole Foods, have them do the arrangement and pick it up the day of or before the wedding too. They sell the flowers arranged or bouquets at cost same as you buying the flowers and arranging them yourself.

Depends on how large the bunch is, our bunches cost $5 at the store, but it’s only about 4 branches.
