Haha, I don’t know because I’m not sure yet if we’re doing flowers, but WOW. That’s a lot of money, but you’re also getting a lot of stuff.. interested to hear what others have to say!

That actually sounds about right to me.  Sad but flowers are EXPENSIVE (as you already know).

I came here to post the exact same question! Thanks, Miss Bumble, for bringing it up ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m also wondering what are the typical costs for flowers in the Boston area ’cause I have no idea at all!

So Boston brides, how much did you pay or how much are you going to pay, for: your bridal bouquet, your Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces?

My bridal bouquet was about $175, bridesmaids’ bouquets about $80, altar pieces $200 each (with vase rental), centerpieces with vase rentals were about $65 each.  Bouts were $10 – $25 and corsages were about $25.

@Miss Bumble: What kind of flowers are you trying to get? Have you gotten multiple quotes to compare? You are getting a lot of arrangements…

It really depends on the flowers.  I have been open with my florist about keeping the budget very small, so we are using mostly cheaper flowers with just a few more expensice ones (i love ranunculus too!).  Even if they are in season, they can still be pricy per stem. 

If you haven’t already made a decision, try talking to florist from a budget perspective first, then figure out what kind of flowers will fit into that.

ok, I know it’s like 3 months later now, but I’m finally starting to get around to contacting some florists. Has anyone found any reasonably priced florists in the boston/north shore area?

What on earth are nosegays????

 

Our flowers are done by a rural country home’s flower business. They will be mixed flower arrangements for each table (like nice!) for 10-20 bucks each. That and basic rose bouquets etc maybe 300 we are spending. We have no wedding party.

Our whole wedding will be uner 5k, I can’t imagine those flower prices! lol.

@thesejoys: my FIs sister got a GREAT quote from a florist in somerville – after getting quotes of over 3,000 from everyone, this guy did the flowers for less than 2k, if you are still looking, i can ask her who the person was – we aren’t at that point yet, or i would already know! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sure ladies! It was Madison Florals – from what their mom says, he was great to work with and really helped them with their budget – though i will say that the flowers weren’t “over the top” they were super beautiful! the other place that I know of is more on the south shore – Floral Impressions – I can not say much about her florals for a wedding, since I have not seen her work, but she is a great florist and we know her – I have sent a couple people her way and they have been happy, so just as another option good luck! I hope that one of them works for you – or if you find another good florist for a budget – let me know! our venue offers a per table allowance at certain florists, but depending on their over all price, we might still go with one of these places ๐Ÿ™‚

@Miss Bumble: Your estimates are pretty on target. One person quoted me about $6K! Another, about $4K. My floral needs are nearly the same as yours (6 maids & 6 grooms, 3 corsages, 2 dad bouts, 2 flower girls, 2 ceremony pieces, place card piece, 8 cocktail tables, and 22 reception tables).

 

Who did you decide on? I’d like to know since my wedding is not until October
