The pricing you got seems about right. We got a great quote from Celebrated Flower in Somerville but ended up going with Bella Floral in Westwood which had similar pricing. We just clicked better with Suzanne.

I know this is super late…but we are using Spruce Floral in South Boston (near South Bay). She works with any budget and makes the most amazingly beautiful arrangements I have ever seen, and I’m TOTALLY not into flowers. It is going to cost us about 2k and we are doing pretty simple tables, 1 bridal bouquet, 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouques, 1 groom bout, 6 Groomsmen bouts, 2 dads, 1 grandpa, and one arrangment on the sign in book table.

Super late but for other MA brides looking for florists, check out Flowers by Val  http://www.flowersbyval.shutterfly.com/. We’ve hired her for our November wedding because her prices seemed extremely reasonable for the flowers we are getting. I’ll touch back after the wedding with pics.

I’m having a very intimate wedding in Boston in June (only 8 guests!) and I’m wondering what’s a realistic price range for such a small wedding. I’m guessing we will only need a bridal bouquet, groom’s boutonniere, one or two arrangements for the ceremony, and one arrangement for the reception/dinner.

I’ve only gotten one quote so far (from Winston) and was so shocked to see that they’re charging $200 for the bridal bouquet alone!!

Anybody have any thoughts or florist recommendations?

@cambridgebee:  You could try Bella Floral in Westwood or Tangled Web.  Personally, I’m using Bella and my bouquet is roughly $160.  Pricing can be about what type(s) of flowers you want to use.  You’ll also want to ask florists if they have any minimum that you need to meet.  Good Luck

I’m using Lotus Designs- Honey is amazing and it is definitely worth the money! However, if you’re looking for something simplisticly pretty, I’ve gotten easter corsages/bouts with clean lines from grocery stores- sounds weird, but works and isn’t expensive!

We talked with Silver and Sage in Norwood, MA and Charlotte Design in Walpole, MA and I found their prices to be in-line with what you were quoted. For a 200 person wedding, I estimated about $3500-4000 for flowers.

I personally worked with Blue Guava for a large work event and thought their work was fabulous, but a bit understaffed for the amount of arrangement placements to be done. So make SURE you ask your vendors who will place flowers day-of! But I absolutely love Yvette and her team (hi Paul!) so we’re going with them. They are artists and flowers are THE most important thing to us after our guest esperience (music, food, and an open bar!)

I met with my florist last week: Honey at Lotus Designs is FABULOUS!!! Its $4000, and worth every penny!!!!!!!!  I wanted fabulous flowers for the tent at the venue- the New England Aquarium!

We are having:

  • (1) bridal bouquet
  • (3) bridesmaid bouquets
  • (1) groom bout
  • (9) bouts for groomsmen/dads/grandfather
  • (2) nosegays for mothers
  • (6) grandmother and reader corsages
  • (2) church alter arrangements
  • (8) HUGE reception arrangements
  • (12) reception table arrangements

I couldn’t believe that she would do a mockup for free (after contract, but she also spent an hour and a half with us for the initial interview!). Here are the photos- the large centerpieces are very high to not get in people way, the other side has multiple stems of orchids cascading down, I wish I had a photo.  I also wish I could find the photos of the succulents that will be on the table around the high centerpieces- succulents on moss that look exactly like they should be in the bottom of the sea 🙂

I think the quote that you got is way higher than what we were looking at for ours which was a similar guest count. Did you check out Last Minute Wed? We spoke to a few florists there and the pricing was really reasonable.
