Those are reasonable prices… you have to remember, flowers are EXPENSIVE.  I’m paying about $45 per centerpiece for something with orchids, curly willow and tall vases.  I gagged at the price at first, but I shopped around and found out that this is reasonable.  I even experimented with making my own, and quickly found that that was just too hard.  I’m in the SF Bay Area, btw.

I think that those are really good prices.

Unfortunately that seems pretty reasonable. I am having low centerpeices with some fruit inside and three gerbera daisies and those are $30 each, so I’d imagine once you add in multiple levels w/orchids and hydragena it would get to be $$. The rest of the prices are about what we were quoted. Your centerpieces sound amazing though!

those are good prices!!   i’m paying $55 for centerpieces (large tall 24" submerged orchids and mixed flowers on top), $100 each for altar, $100 for brides bouquet, $50 for bridesmaids bouquets, $8 boutonierres.   so your prices seem great, but it also depends whereabouts you are. 🙂

those are awesome prices, especially since you’re using high end flowers. i don’t know how many blooms the florist is planning on using in your centerpieces, but that might be something to discuss with her.

i’m paying an average of 100/centerpiece (curly willow, orchids, mini callas, celosia, snapdragons), 600 for ceremony decor (chuppah pole rental and two arrangements), 175 for the bridal bouquet and 15 for FI’s bout. i’m not doing bm bouquets, gm/family bouts, or corsages.

you might want to check out the delivery/set up fee too — i got quoted 500 at one place and 150 at another.

good! glad to hear it. 

i’m outside of philly. the flowers that they’re using are on the pricier end (mostly callas and out-of-season flowers), but there hasn’t been much discrepancy in the quotes for either the bout or the bouquet. this is one of the reasons we’re not going with flowers for the wedding party.

I’m DIYing our centerpieces. Our country club has mirrors. I ordered navy rose petals (one of our wedding colors) and FMIL bought me lace, glue, votive candle holders and flameless candles. Basically we’re creating lace covered candles on a mirror with navy rose petals scattered around. I saw them online and HAD to recreate them! The whole thing has probably cost less than $100 and they look AMAZING!!

I am spending aout $20 per centerpiece most of that cost is because the vases I bought were pricey, but I plan to either sell them after the wedding or use them around the house! You want to see pictures? OK!
