So i just got a price for flowers and I have no idea if it’s reasonable or not.
My Boquet – probably 12″ diam. (similar to this) $175
Maids – $85 ea – apx 7″ dia, mostly true purple carnations (which are apparently prices like roses, not like traditional carns)
Bouts – $15 ea – Purple Calla’s with those green berry things.
Centerpieces she has priced at $50 ea, she’s going to send me pics or what she’s thinking based on my inspiration so I don’t know any details on this yet.

That sounds reasonable to me, based on the prices I paid for flowers for my wedding four years ago.

@MsGinkgo: that sounds very reasonable, especially the centrepieces and your boquets. If you’re concered that the BMs and bouts are too expensive, consider changing the flower. Callas are known to be pricey (but they are beautiful!!!)
by the way, that’s a beautiful bridal bouquet! it will all look gorgeous!

I can’t speak to centerpieces (not doing flowers for ours), but the bouquet and bout prices line up almost perfectly with what we’ve been quoted here in metro DC. Depending on where you live you might be able to find cheaper, but I’m not sure how much.

My bouquet, similar to that pic, was $175, my Maid/Matron of Honor was $150 only slightly smaller, and calla bouts were $20, so I think it’s typical pricing.

Sounds reasonable. I think the maids bouquets may be a bit high but only slightly… everything was pretty much in line with my quotes.

@Almost Mrs.P: her original price for the maids boquets was $125 which was way too high, I explained that I really didn’t want them to be very large.
@TammieRei: Your flowers look very similar to what I’m having 🙂
