I feel like it’s somewhere around what I paid, but I also overpaid. $200 seems steep for a bridal bouquet, but mine were only roses and you’re having a lot more types of flowers in yours. It’s possible that jacks up the price. Sorry I don’t have more advice. But I can tell you that if you’re comfortable with this florist and she really gets what you want and your vision, paying a little bit more (not A LOT more) can be worth it over going with a cheaper option that could potentially screw up. I did like my florist, my bouquet was pretty, but it wasn’t exactly what I asked for… sigh…

Seems a little pricey but it depends on the location. I contacted a popular florist in Central Florida and received the following price list:

Bridal bouquets start at $150, Roses, Calla Lilies, and most flowers are included in

this price. Stephanotis, Cymbidium Orchids and some other exotic flowers can

incur additional charges. Bridesmaids Bouquets are typically around $65 and

Flower Girl items are $25. The Groom’s boutonniere is $15 and all others are $10

each, corsages for mothers and grandmothers are $25 each. Ceremony and

Reception Decor pricing is specific to your choices and you will be given pricing at

your consultation.

The only thing that stands out to me is the corsage. $35 seems a bit high. The rest seems normal, especially seeing the inspiration photos.

Hmmm.. Im not sure what other brides consider reasonable so I don’t really know how to answer this  but my total decor/flower/dessert bar quote is $815.

Our florals will consist of cabbage roses (garden roses), billy buttons, hydrangeas, spray roses, and baby’s breath.

This includes:

Ceremony decor: Pomanders and fabric swags

Reception centerpieces: Eclectic collection of white(milk glass) and aqua blue glass/ceramic filled with informal arrangement of flowers. (8 tables)

Paper heart confetti from old maps/books

Vintage props for our gift/dessert tables

Dessert buffet with monogramed heart shaped cookies, mini cheesecakes, smores bar (plus serving ware/decor/frames/dessert lables)

A cake topper (lollypop workshop inspired)

Florals: Centerpieces, brides bouquet, 11 bouts, 2 corsages, 4 flower girl baskets, 4 floral headbands for flower girls) (Hand tied vintage themed)

And a here comes the bride sign.:)

Seems pretty comparable to what I paid, and that was a good price for my location.  My bouquet was $175 (roses, lisanthius, calla lillies, dendrobium orchids, blue delphinium, pitsporri greenery) and bridesmaids bouquets $55, corsages $28, bouts $18, my two big floral arrangements cost me $150 each, rose petals were $125.  So I guess it depends on location.
