I didn’t get a ton of quotes for flowers since we DIY’ed. But from what I understand calla lilies are more expensive and for so many bouquets, bouts, kissing balls and corsages it sounds like a good price to me? Esp for a big city like TO?

The number of flowers she is quoting you will give you much smaller bouquets.  Your bridal bouquet with a total of 12 flowers will be about half of your inspiration photo size.

12 flowers in your bouquet will be smaller than your Maid/Matron of Honor inspiration. I think they’ll look too small in person.

@couawilou: I’d need to see a pic, I still think 12 is way too few no matter how small you are.

Counting up 30 calla lillies at ~$5/each = $150

14 roses ~4/each = $56

+ a bunch of little fillers $50 is tops?

I think the quote sounds a bit high for the number of flowers you are getting, but that is going to be very typical of florist that sort of include a labor charge.  If you’re happy with her and its in the budget, go for it!  If you’re looking to save some money, I recommend whole foods market.  They can make everything for you and only charge you only the cost of the flowers with no additional fees so for what you want, so it sounds like it should be about $200-250 tops.

@couawilou: Gotcha–if that’s the case, then go for it!  The only way you could go much cheaper if you DIY’d some of it… have you thought about that at all?

Heres my whole foods bouqets  if you want to see how it came out.  My bm bouquet had 8 roses.  Mine had about 30 stems.  I think 12 may look ok on you by yourself, but I dont think it really 12 vs 8 will be a very big difference from your BMs if that matters to you.
