My bouquet is (as the contract describes)…

Bride’s Bouquet – hand held clutch bouquet of apricot, blush, and crimson dahlias, apricot, blush, and crimson cottage roses and one stem of white hyacinth (silk) to represent bride’s grandmother.  Stem wrap of ivory satin, and finished with pearl pins.   $100.00

Personally i think $100 is reasonable. Keep in mind those are for a “live” bouquet. It’s also on the lesser end of the spectrum because I’m a petite (4’11”) bride- I didn’t need a large bouquet.

My toss bouquet will be silk to save money, you toss it anyway right?  My bouquet will be $140, I went over budget on this since I wanted to spend around $100, but I really wanted peonies, rananculus, and picasso calla lillies so the price went up 🙁  But I can’t wait to see it.  I figured it was my splurge and these flowers will be in almost all of our pictures so it was worth it for me.

$100 is a resonable price for a nice bridal bouquet. I may personally go over because I found a florist with connections to tulips in July. I love tulips. $100 will give you a lovely bouquet if you are not picky about the flowers.

I am totally down with silk flowers, but they don’t always save you money. Talk to a florist or two first.

My bouquet is $95.  I wanted a very full bouquet, but I didn’t choose very expensive flowers, which is probably what kept me until $100.
