You’re only real option is to call several places, explain what you want and get quotes. I know it’s a hassle but sine web sites don’t give cost…it’s what you have to do.

Also, costs are going to depend on what type of flowers you choose—how common/available they are and whether they’re in season during your wedding time. Roses are by far the most economical option because there are a million varieties available year round at a lower cost than many other flowers.

I’m not sure of "average" floral costs.  But if you are on a budget…shop around.  That’s what I did.  But, I also don’t want ALOT of flowers…

We went to to a tiny little flower shop in a tiny little town (a friend of mine recommended her, and her flowers were beautiful)… and we are getting ALL the flowers including bouquets, boutineers (spelling), for under $400. (ivory lilies and roses)……

Look around, always shop around with an open mind!!!

I agree with most of these posts and most florists are willing to work in your budget.  I just met with one and thought she was so creative.  Knowing I wanted high centerpieces in my area (metro NYC) I knew my budget needed to be a little more but through my photographer’s reference I found someone that has little overhead and doesn’t mark up flowers. 

I would say the best bet is to research flowers.  Peonies will be in season for you but they are the most expensive flower.  Roses and greens are always pretty fair.  In your celadon you could do hydrangeas which are also pretty fair.  The last thing is look for someone that may work out of their house or have little overhead.  That is where costs start adding up.  Also use their vases instead of renting them or buy your own at Michaels or AC Moore.
