I read somewhere that the flowers should be about a total of 8% of your total wedding. My total package, even including a 2 sofas & a coffee table, is about $4000.00.

Based on what you want, I would think that you could get all of that for under $1,000. My wedding was enormous, so I had 30 tables to put centerpieces on which jacked up my price. But, if you’re not doing centerpieces, you should be relatively cheaper.

Here’s what I’ve learned from my research:

I think bouts are generally $8-$14

Coursages are more like $14-$20

The bridal bouquet I think is usually around $100 (this really depends on the flowers and size).

BM bouquets would be like $75

I don’t know about the tossing bouquet, I also don’t know how expensive daisies are. I’d say you should be looking at $500 max.

I just booked my florist yesterday!

What we’re paying:

  • $100 for bridal bouquet, toss bouquet was FREE
  • $50/pp for BMs
  • $10/pp for corsages
  • $5/pp for bouts

Our total was about $775, with everything including our ceremony and reception flowers.

Sunshine, I completely understand! We’re on a very strict budget too. Try little, local florists instead of big places. I got mine from a little mom and pop shop and they had very reasonable pricing.

My florist wanted a deposit of $250 when we booked. We paid more than that, with a check. We have until 15 days before the wedding to make any changes and get him the balance.

We are going the DIY route.  I am ordering 72 Large Ivory/Cream Garden Roses from fiftyflowers.com for $189.99, and 125 Ivory Roses from Costco for $99.99.

My aunt used to be an interior designer/florist, so she will be assisting in assembling all of the flowers.

I am planning on using:

Bride: 18 Garden Roses

6 Bridesmaids: 3 Garden Roses and 12 Roses

12 Bouts: 1 Rose

5 Corsages: 3 Roses

(20-25) Cocktail table centerpieces: 1 Large Garden Rose

Just early planning 😉

We’re shooting for Gerber Dasies under $1,000 and the florist said it’s totally possible. We have more to our wedding party as well. Granted, we aren’t doing any ceremony flowers but that’s because my church doesn’t display flowers during Lent.
