I was talking to our officiant/coordinator and she says her services offers a bouquet for $75. At first I was appalled – “Almost one hudred bucks for some freakin plants?!” – but when I began reviewing professionally done bouquets, I realized they go up to $300 and that I was getting a good deal! D*MN girls!! I guess its just the whole wedding=expensive stiker shock.
So I ask you lovely Bees: how much are you/would you pay for your bouquet?
To clarify I want a sunflower bouquet and originally was going to buy some from our local farmers market for $15…until I realized they wouldnt be in season when I wanted them D: Ugh

My bouquet will be $125 and the BMs will be $60. Mine has calla lillies, tulips, roses, etc in it. I think that is about right for my area but I’m not positive. I only know that the bouquet I originally wanted (all callas) was $450! Yikes!

@Saeliz: Mine are the exact same prices! I’m doing all white peonies and my BMs are getting pale pink peonies.
@MadameLady: Pricing really depends on the size of the bouquet and what kind of flowers. My florist said that’s the one thing you should pick what you really want (in terms of flowers) because it’s your bouquet. Centerpieces and stuff you can always cut back on or substitute!

I made mine and now working on selling them and eventually opening of a shop. I really fell in love with the wedding industry while I was planning my wedding!

I have a friend who spent $1500 on flowers…and she didn’t have a bridal party. My bouquet was a little over $100.

My bouquet was originally going to be about $100-$125 but I really didn’t feel like I was getting what I wanted. I went to the FTD website and found the arrangements that you can order to send to someone and there it was!! Hopefully, the florist will just let me use that arrangement and it will only cost $45. The BM will cost about $30.
Crossing my fingers. Have you thought about not ordering “wedding flowers”? That’s what I’m trying to do.

Mine was about $175, made of callas, berries, some other lillies, succulents, orchids, and a couple other smaller flowers I’m forgetting. I knew mine was more expensive, so I “balanced” it out by doing just 3 stems of mokara orchids for the bridesmaids, which came in about $30 each but still looked really nice — very deliberate (versus…uh oh I ran out of flower budget!)

Mine was just over $200… but it will last forever!

Wow….those sure are interesting bouquets! Mine is $125….which I believe is standard.

I’m getting a seriously good bargain on my bouquet. It will cost me $75 for lilacs, ranunculous, garden roses, and sweet peas…not exactly cheap flowers, and I asked for a larger bouquet!
