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

- Wedding: March 2012 - Pelican Grand Beach Resort
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.

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.

I was told the succulents are a little more pricey, so im sure i can always alter the cost by not using certain flowers. I live in a small town in wisconsin so not a very richy area at all, i kinda wonder if she is jacking up the price a little as to not having them do my reception flowers/larger bridal party…..this was the first quote i was given, however i do love and feel like the florist gets the feel im looking for.
