@mrschmura:  I paid $12 for boutonnieres and $100 for my bouquet, depends on what is in each tho.  And your area.

@mrschmura:  Yeah that seems pretty reasonable to me and is about what I paid (I actually paid a little more). You can always ask to have the bouquets made smaller if they are not within your budget.

Keep in mind that size, types of flowers and location will all increase or decrease the pricing.

I think it depends on your area, the complexity/variety of the flowers/arrangements, and the services you need, such as setting up/transportation.

I’m in Southern California where everything is pricey, so these prices look about right to me. My bridal bouquet was $300 and included garden roses, regular roses, hydrangeas, dahlias ($$$), craspedia, anemones and dusty miller ($$$). DH’s bout was about $15 and only had craspedia. We didn’t have a Bridal Party so I don’t have those prices for you, but our centerpieces were about $200 and were HUGE with similar flowers as my bouquet. Our setup/transportation/labor costs were a percentage of the cost of the arrangements and I think this came out to about $600 or so.

Your best bet would be to reach out to several florists in your area and do a comparison. Be sure to have them quote all the same flowers, sizes of arrangements, and all labor/delivery/tax/etc. costs.

That sounds reasonable to me.  I quote about 5 different quotes.  I think mine is around $180.  BMs were between $50-$75.  Bouts $10-$15.  Corsages $17-25.

I imagine she’s just giving you a rough estimate of what things usually cost.  They can get cheaper or more expensive depending on what you want to do and what flowers you want.

I’m paying $150 for my bouquet and $50 for bridesmaids.  

It depend on the types of flowers you’re using, how they’re wrapped, etc.

I don’t understand how she can give you an estimate without knowing what type of flowers you want. Isn’t that the primary determination of cost?
