@audrey_lane:  Just get quotes other places, and then when you find a better price, just let the other florist know that you’ve decided to go in another direction, thank you for your time, etc. I found a flower farm to do my flowers for $1000 for everything I wanted. Other florists were asking for a 3k minimum.

I would probably just reach out to another florist.

@audrey_lane:  That is absolutely insane!! Even my tallest centerpeices were like 80-90 dollars a piece! I didn’t do extravagant flowers or anything but we did use more than what you are asking and ours came in much lower. We did all of the bouquets, flowers for the bridal party, center peices, and altar pecies for about 2500 dollars. If you want i can show you pics of what I paid for! I would tell them you are going to look else where or go get another quote and use that to bargain!

I forgot to ask: does this include the vase? Those can add up if you don’t supply your own.

We’re doing big bunches of BB for part of our ceremony backdrop and our florist quoted us at $18 per bunch (a bunch large enough to fill a large coffee can). The first florist we went to was going to charge $35 per bunch for the same amount. It’s definitely important to compare prices between florists (: I’m sure you’ll be able to find something cheaper.

I am having tall baby’s breath centerpieces as well and I got quote $175 from a florist and then I got another quote of $125 from a different florist. I was kind of surprised since I thought baby’s breath was super cheap, but the florists said that they charge so much because it’s time consuming to shape baby’s breath

These are the centerpieces we are having:
