Okay Ladies Bees let me know your thoughts. The venue where we are getting married has a fantastic all inclusive package (from invites to the cake, EVERYTHING). However, because some of my vendors are special friends to me we ended up having a more a la carte (if you will ) vendor selection. However, in my distress and constant milling over how to choose flowers I decided to call the Event Coordinator at our venue to ask about storing flowers that I planned to order, and she let me know that they don’t have the refrigeration capacity. However, she did send me a floral package that typically comes with their all inclusive package, but called the florist on my behalf and they will let me have the same package.
All include roses in the colors of our wedding (corals,pinks,yellows) and white for me
- 1 Bridal Bouquet
- 1 Toss bouquet
- Grooms Boutonniere
- 4 Bouquets for the Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaids
- 4 Bouts for the Groomsmen
- 2 Corsages (for mom and his grandmom)
- 2 Bouts (for my Brothers who will walk me down the aisle)
- 2 Alter arrangements
- 16 centerpieces (various flowers vases and risers included)
Total: $1589.76 (includes tax)
Is this a good price ladies??

Do you have a breakdown of the individual prices? It’s easier to see that way.

Not individually for everything but I know some of the prices. The package comes with one bouquet for an attendant and I have to pay $45 each for 3 extras ($135) the same for 3 addt’l bouts $8/bout ($24) . I added 8 risers to the cost at $15/riser ($120). Without the extras I mentioned, the cost is $1200, which includes delivery and set-up.

@Soon2BMrsP818: I’m a Philly bride as well and that price sounds great.

That sounds like a fantastic price. It is a lot less than what we spent for flowers, I’ll tell you that.

Thanks ladies! I really appreciate the insight. As I have to be honest, I had not a CLUE about how to set the budget for flowers.

@Soon2BMrsP818:Sounds like a great price. Are these prices from a vendor in Philly or in the ‘burbs? I am going to be seeking out quotes soon for flowers and I’m wondering if you’d be able to share who the vendor is? Feel free to PM me if you’d like!

@blueroses: Yes this was the price from Vendor in Philly. And even better I received a reference of another florist in Philly who could do even better. I have a meeting with them on March 12th. The vendor that gave me this quote is Kremp Florist in Willow Grove, Pa. That’s the cost of the package they have exclusively with our location vendor. But they were really nice and I am certain they will work with whatever your budget is and make it beautiful.
The other florist is Riehs Florist (in Philadelphia). My close friend used them for her wedding (350 guests) and she spent about $1300 for ceremony, bridal party, and centerpiecesand her flowers were GORGEOUS. I attached a .
