That’s cheaper than mine, for more stuff!

ETA: noticed how small the centerpieces are. that makes it seem a bit more expensive.  have you seen a breakdown of the costs of each item? I would get quotes from other places and compare ๐Ÿ™‚  I know my flowers cost more than I expected them to as well.

@lovelove1028:  First of all- I think your flowers sound lovely! The inspiration pics are great ๐Ÿ™‚

Where abouts do you live? Prices vary greatly by location.

Also, how much ceremony & reception decoration are we talking? And how big are the centerpieces and bouquets?

I think your quote sounds reasonable, from what I’ve seen/heard.

I’m thinking this is very reasonable! But I’d like to hear what other brides are spending, and now I’m thinking maybe I should cut down on my flowers. I’m from a small town, and I got estimates from 2 different places which both said average wedding flowers cost around $3000. The one that I booked and planned with is already at $3900. Maybe because we’re estimating 330 people, so there’s a lot of tables to do centerpieces? I’m not sure but I’m going to look into cutting some of that price!

I am getting my flowers SUPER cheap because my mom’s good friend is a florist BUT on the “quote page” that she gave me it had the breakdown before the discount.. Here is what it should have been:

4- Bouquets (1 larger for me, 3 smaller for BM’s) made of coral roses and blue carnations

7- Boutineere’s (2 Dad’s, 1 stepdad, 3 groomsmen, pastor) made of coral roses

4- Corsages (2 mom’s, 1 stepmom, 1 grandmother) made of coral roses/blue carnations

18- Centerpieces.. These will look similar to your first picture, just standard flowers in vases (We are doing other table decor ourselves) made of coral roses/blue carnations, babys breath, etc. 

15- Spare coral roses for cake decorator to put on cake.

The total cost for all of this WOULD have been $1200. We are actually lucky and only paying 500. I know that brides bouqets run around $100-200, BM’s ones run $75ish, boutineeres cost about $6 each, corsages $10-15 each.. I have a lot more centerpieces than you but am not doing any ceremony decor with flowers. Our backdrop is a waterfall so we aren’t doing a lot.. just having pomander balls up the isle and tulle bows on the end chairs.

That sounds pretty cheap to me.

Our flowers were just over $2k and we had 2 BMs and 2 GMs, 83 guests. We used only seasonal flowers.
