I got a quote from the first florist we looked at:
-1 bridal bouquet (white roses and hydrangeas)
-1 Maid/Matron of Honor bouquet (dozen roses, pink and purple)
– 2 bouts (single white roses)
– 3 table centerpieces (orchid arrangement)
– 2 ceremony arrangements (snaps, hydrangeas, roses – pink purple white)
Is that a good price? All the table centerpieces are small, and the ceremony arrangments are small too..we let him know were on a budget.
Also, do you think this mixture would look fine, or should everything be the same type of flowers throughout the day?

That sounds extremely reasonable to me. Especially because of the kind of flowers you’re using. Roses, hydrangeas, and orchids are all pretty pricey flowers, plus on top of labor, tax, and delivery…$450 sounds like quite the steal! I know here in MI, a dozen rose bridal bouquet is $85 alone, not including the price of labor and tax. I know that prices vary from each area, but depending on what kind of orchids your using (I’m guessing dendrobium?), they start at $5.00 a stem here.
I also think that the flowers you’ve chosen sound great. Elegant and soft (hydrangeas, snaps, and roses) with a touch of a modern look (orchids). The colors sound like they’ll work well together too. Good choice. 🙂

I don’t know if it’s a good price or not, but it sounds beautiful!

That actually sounds like a really reasonable price to me! However, I’m not sure what prices are like in your area. However, in regards to my own wedding/prices I experienced….it sounds reasonable!

mine will be a diy project so i havent actually asked around recent but i do know people spend a lot more than that, it all depends on how many flowers they put in the bouquets and centerpieces..

hmmm..ok. I guess I need to make a decision quick, since my wedding will be soon. I’m glad it sounds reasonable!

That definitely sounds like a good price to me! We went with hydrangeas as well because they are so full but were pretty inexpensive.

sounds like it’s on a reasonable/low side of price
it’s the orchid that’s more costly, roses are cheaper
my flowers are on the cheaper-end but my florist is charing me (for an equalivent arrangement of your listing above) approx $900. our “rental” centerpiece includes a few pieces of orchid, that along was $140. it’s ridiculous now that i think about it but it’s too late to back out from the contract
