I’m starting to get some pricing for flowers for the wedding party and I had no idea they would be so expensive!
Two of the four places that I priced out came back with:
$175 – $200 for the bridal bouques
$95 – $110 for bridesmaids
$20 – $25 for boutonnieres
$20 – $25 for corsages (mom/FMIL/Gma/FIGma’s)
Does that sound right? Outside of a few bouquets here and there I have zero flower buying experience so I’m not quite sure where the prices should be. So, I thought I would turn to the experts in the beehive 🙂 Ladies? What’s your flower pricing like?

I’m doing all of the flowers myself and all together, spent probably around $300- that includes my bridal bouquet, 6 bridesmaides bouquets, corsages, and boutiniers. Now all of these are silk flowers so that definitely helped lower the cost. And if I would have used flowers in my centerpieces, it would have been much higher.

I went with safeway
my bouquet 105
BM bouquet $75 each
coursages $13 each
With flowers for 4BMs&4GMs&flowers for parents and living gparents ended up being $528 before tax

That’s at the higher end of normal, I’d say, but not outrageous. That’s only a little higher than I was quoted for flowers and we live in very different areas, so this is probably pretty average.

It depends on the flowers you use, too. My florist that I booked with quoted me $655 and that was for 1 bridal bouquet, 1 toss bouquet, 5 bridesmaids bouquets, 1 junior bridesmaid bouquet, 1 groom bout, 12 other bouts total (I think), 2 corsages and tax. Some of the flowers used are orchids, garden roses, amaryllis, etc.. (orchids and garden roses are more expensive than normal flowers).

I went to the Amish across the street from me and got a REALLY good deal. She gave me ALL of the tulips for my wedding for $150- my Mom is putting the arrangements together!

that is pretty normal… here is what I was quoted, granted i live on the other side of the country and i’m not having and bridesmaids but it’s pretty close to what you were quoted:
my bouquet $145 (succulents, garden roses, mums, sweet pea)
centerpieces are $75 a piece. they have manzanita, same flowers as bouquet with some filler flowers)
and she’s doing a swag for $75 that will go over the fireplace that we are getting married in front of.
also doing some curly willow to cover a wall partition for like $40.

I spent just over $1,000 for my bouquet, 6 bridesmaid bouquets, 2 corsages, 13 boutinnieres, 13 centerpieces (including vase rental), a flower for the top of the cake, and aisle petals. Basically all flowers are black magic roses or ivory vendala roses.

I was quoted 600 which includes my bouquet and 6 bridesmaids bouquets, 4 bouts, 3 corsages, and 13 centerpieces.
I think this is a great price…even though my flowers are mostly inexpensive daisys and wildflowers with the exception of my bouquet.
What do you guys think?

@PinkPandaBear: At my venue, it was $3-400 for bride, $100ish for BM, $50ish for corsages, and $40ish for bouts. It was cheaper for me to get wholesale flowers, do my own, and pay the $200 outside vendor fee for not using their florist.

I was quoted $1500.00 for my bouquet, 4 maid bouquets and 8 dozen bulk roses for my centerpieces. I thought this was crazy, so I did a trial run and made them myself. It cost my $23.00 for mine, $15.00 for my maids and $125.00 for 8 dozen roses. In total spending $208.00. My mother in law is going to make the bouquets the day before so I dont have to worry about it. Since the flowers are just roses it kept the cost down. Now we can spend that money on something else:D
