Sounds close to mine. My bouquet was $175.  Bridesmaids bouquets $54 each. Pinned corsages $28 each.  Boutonnieres $14 each.  For my area that was a really reasonable price.

You have to remember that floristry is an expensive business to be in as the flowers are kept in mint condition with preservation techniques and lots of refridgeration. Plus u pay for what u get and a cheap florist will not give you top quality flowers.

@MardiGrasMambo:  That’s actually on the lower end of most of the quotes I’ve received/seen.  I think if you searched for anything cheaper, you might end up with lesser quality flowers like a PP mentioned, or even worse, they’ll show up with different, cheaper flowers and tell you that they had to substitute them.

Blue hydrangea, white callas and roses. 77.95

and then my girls are going to cost about 30 to 40 each

That seems like a great price!

You have to remember that you’re essentially paying per stem and paying a certain percentage for her work.

The prices don’t seem too high to me except the bouts.  $47 EACH?!  That’s nuts.


ETA: I misread the bout price.  It all looks reasonable to me!

That seems normal

(Which is why I did my own! All flowers for about $550. And we had a ton)

@LindsayMaree:  I just realized this!  Thanks for clarifying 🙂  I didn’t read carefully enough.

That sounds like what I was quoted for a specialty florist. The grocery store was cheaper 🙂

@HisNightOwl2014:  Yeah, but you live in the middle of nowhere and the OP lives in a major city. It makes a big difference.

OP: I think that looks right on par with what you’d get charged on average!

@MardiGrasMambo:  It does seem a little high to me, but maybe that’s due to the type of flowers you’re using? Mine are just simple calla lilies. I am going with Bee’s in Metairie. Here’s what I’m getting:

1 bridal bouquet, white calla lilies $108

6 bridesmaids bouquets, 3 white callas apiece $230.40

1 flowergirl ball of white roses $56.62

1 flowergirl headwreath of roses $24.90

1 groom’s boutonniere $6.30

12 other boutonnieres $75.60

4 corsages $99.60

and this comes with a free toss bouquet.

Oh, and there’s a $50 setup fee.
