Around 10 percent- the flowers are super important to me and i devoted a big slice of the budget to them.

Less than 3% of my wedding budget is going towards flowers – we aren’t doing any at the church (as the church is ornate enough) or the reception (as the centrepieces are branches, etc).

But the bouquets, boutineers and Mothers Bouquets are beautiful!

This is hard because I have it split into.. reception and ceremony. All together wedding budget is about $25,000. maybe 3000 all together for flowers. Im not have any sort of arch tho, just a few things for the church.

Hmm…I think we spent about 15% of our budget with our florist. This included all flowers (ceremony, centerpieces, bouquets, etc), chuppah, lanterns for the garden, escort card table arrangement, and rented chiavari chairs.

About 5-6% but I’m DIY mine, so I’m saving about $2000, probably a bit more.

It’s looking like it will be around 10%-15% but I would love for it to be less. Flowers are the least important thing to me but FI and my mom are pretty much insisting on them.

Around 8-9% of my $12,000 budget. That’s for 14 small centerpieces, two larger arrangements, and my bouquet.

8%. Flowers wound up being a little more expensive than I expected- the first quote my florist gvae me was $9k! I laughed in her face and was like, let’s start over and work with half that haha

Probably about 5%. I’m not into flowers, and we are DIYing silk bouquets, no floral centerpieces.

i’m super into flowers and used to be a flower broker. My goal is 10% of overall budget with the hopes that i can get more product by buying wholesale.

@Meowkers: I think since you are in L.A. you could get a really great rate. Try to find someone downtown who would do your wedding for cash. there are a gazillion women who work in the business here so don’t get suckered into using a “blog friendly” florist – you’ll pay through the nose.
