@thumpurr:  That is awesome!  After seeing so many quotes online here that are so crazy expensive this gives me hope for when we start seeking out our florist!

That is very similar to our quote, so it seems reasonable to me too!

The quote seems pretty on-point. Your bouquet is a little less expensive than mine was, and to get that price for peonies is nice, but everything else seems pretty comparable to what we paid. All in all, seems pretty fair. 🙂

That seems like an awesome price! That’s a little cheaper than my quote (and we’re doing peonies too). My first quote was $2000 for the exact same flowers and then went to another florist and they quoted us $1000 for the flowers (including tax and delivery). I definitely think you’re getting a good deal! Check out another florist though to compare if you think it’s high, but I almost guarantee you that another florist will quote you higher or the same 😉 I’d go for it!

I think that’s fair! You also don’t seem to be needing the volume that brides typically need (small wedding party, low # of reception flowers). Way to go!

@thumpurr:  That was our floral bill, almost to a T!

What a rip-off though, in general, wedding flowers are, amirite?!!!

Sounds fair to me.  I went somewhere and they quoted us close to 3k for flowers…..then went somewhere else (which is the place we went with) and got quoted around 700-800$ for pretty much everything the other place had quoted me for, lol.  Wedding flower costs = insanity >_>; 

To cut down on flower cost we had candle centerpieces with scattered rose petals on a mirror glass tile.  Was soooo pretty and saved us some major coin, lol.  Candles for every single table cost about what one floral arrangment would have cost per table.  BAM, lol.  Glad I love candles AND flowers.  Shoot.

@thumpurr:  This seems reasonable.  Your flowers are similar to what I am doing; however, I cut out peonies to save a lot of $.  I subbed the ranunculus, so I’ll have ranunculus, anemonies, and roses (tea roses mostly), all in blush and white. There will also be greenery.  If you’re open to other flower options you could probably lower the price, but it honestly seems great to me!  I’m also re-using my 8 BM bouquets for the short centerpieces (we will  have tall, medium, and short).

@thumpurr:  That all looks very legit (that said, it wouldn’t surprise me if it was higher LOL)– but that definitely seems correct!!
