    @soontobehisbride:  I think maybe this is middle of the road? Im not sure how flower prices compare where I live versus MN. I know when my friend got married last summer, all of our BM bouquets were under $100, I think they were $75-80? And they had similar flowers, and even a few more expensive ones (like peonies instead of garden roses). The bridal bouquet was $125 and was a bigger version of ours.

    ETA these are them:

    @soontobehisbride:  We were quoted $2000 at a boutique-type place for something very similar to yours in Columbus, OH.  At which point the owner says, we only do $3000 or above here – would you like to add more?  If not, my daughter does lovely work and has her own shop.  Would you like to book her with a deposit now?  Needless to say we went a different direction.

    There is a company here in Columbus where you can DIY under the watchful eye of a trained florist.  Basically they cut their costs by making you do the labor – so all we are paying for is flowers.  Our quote is very similar to yours, but with floral centerpieces.  I think the price you were quoted is very reasonable, especially for the amount of flowers you are receiving.

    Good luck, they sound beautiful!

    I think that’s reasonable. We have about the same thing, minus the bridesmaids but add 8 centerpieces, very similar flowers.
