    What kind of flowers are they?  That will have an impact on the cost.

    I’m going through a professional florist and getting less than you and paying $2500+.

    hmm…maybe you can ask her for a breakdown of the costs?  this way you’d get a better idea if the estimate is reasonable or not.  it sounds like you are getting a lot of arrangements, so it could be legit…but if you get an itemized breakdown, maybe you can see if one item is costing a ridiculous amounts (who knows, maybe something seemingly little like the ficus trees are throwing off the whole estimate)

    I would expect to pay about $2,000-$2,500, so I did not vote.

    I’m doing much less than you (Bride Bouquet, 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man, 6 bouts, 3 corsages, 4 tall centerpieces, 4 short, 2 arrangements for the ceremony) and it cost me $775. You are getting twice as much as I am almost, so I don’t think it’s unreasonable.

    Do you have any pics of what you’re asking for?

    That seems like a lot of flowers and arrangements so I think her estimate seems fair.

    That is a lot of flowers for $1500. To me, it seems like you are getting a pretty good deal. If a professional was doing it, I’d guess it would be nearly double the cost.

    That sounds like a lot (not only flower-wise, but labor-wise).  I think you’re getting a great deal IMO.  🙂

    I’ve worked for a florist who was very budget oriented. You are getting a lot for your money, even at cost… I’d be very excited that you’re only paying $1,500…

    I would have guessed well over $2k especially since you are near Chicago and things are more expensive closer to large cities.

    That sounds like an amazing deal.  I would have guessed between 2-3K easy (if not more).

    Can she do a mock up for you?  So you can see what her work actually looks like?

    @rachel: mine are gerbera daisies too and I am paying a lot more.   I think you’re getting a great deal.
