I’m a bit on the expensive side ;-/

I have 16 tables at $250 a pop = $4000.00

I am attaching a mock up done by the florist (these are not the exact flowers that are being used – but the colors are the same).

@BeeG35:  Thanks! I highly recommend setting a limit with the florist and then giving them carte blanche to create something for you to see. If you have your heart set on something big and dramatic but can only afford $100 per centerpiece – ask them how or what they can do for that amount. I just brought my florist a ton of photos and then she created the mock up above. That is NOT what it looked like when it first came out. There were light pinks and yellows and I started pulling flowers out, asking for different colors and this is what we came up with together! Get hands on with them and in the end, it ensures you get what you want for a price you find reasonable! 🙂 Best of Luck!

$50 each centerpiece and were supplying the Mason Jars. We just asked for something appropriate for a Rose Garden wedding and an indoor reception

$25.00 for small, low centerpieces.  We’re having family style dinner, so there needs to be room for food.  Taller arrangements around the room are $100-150.

about $15.00 per table – we had 9 tables.   We made our own burlap runners, bought low vases at Walmart for 1.50 each, put one Hydrangea in each vase with a few babys breath and voila.  The venue supplied the candles and candleholders.

We had 2 different arrangements—one tall and one short that went on every other table—we used all white hydrangea, peony and garden roses. Each table was $300. 

The head table arrangement was $800. 

We also had pin spot lighting on all of the floral arrangements for $3,000. The lighting REALLY does make a difference. As our florist said—in person, it makes a $300 centerpiece look like a $500 one…I highly reccommend it! 

Also, don’t forget about the delivery, labor and setup charge!

did not have centerpieces, a ridiculous waste of money; chose to invite more people instead!  And no one thought less of me by not having a bunch of stuff on the tables.

My quote from the florist for this was $75/each – with me providing candles and birdcage.

$28 but mine probably aren’t considered “grand”. The are various bottles (wine bottle, mason jar, vintage bottle supplied by florist) with flowers in them.
