I am trying to get an idea of the cost of flowers, since I have no clue what so ever how much the norm is. So… if you don’t mind, how much did you or are you spending on real flowers (not fake) for your wedding? What did that include and what state do you live in?

We are spending $1600. Includes bride/bridesmaids bouquets, groom/groomsmen/ dad boutenierres, mom/gma corsages, 7 flower arrangement centerpieces, 7 candle centerpieces (with small flower vases), and flowers on the chairs down the aisle.

I spent around $100 for silk flowers @ Joann Fabrics. DIY bouquets and boutonnieres.

I am spending 600 on enough stems for 6 bouquets, 6 boutenieres (for women – then mens were DIY). Roses for petals for the four flower girls and centerpieces for 25 tables. No Joke.
I originally told them I wanted 10 $30 dollar bouquets and I would disassemble and recreate my own as needed…she said ‘ well why didnt you say DIY sooner’ and then offered me crazy low prices for just stems. Instead of $170 bridal bouquet and $70 a piece for 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets – I am paying for ALL the flowers for the same price.
Im super pumped!

I think flowers can be very cheap or very expensive, depending on how many you want. I spent $3300. My florist told me that 2K was pretty average. A friend of mine got all hers for around $1200.

I live in MA and I’m spending a little less than $5K on flowers. That includes:
20 table centerpieces (we invited 250 people, so not sure how many tables we will end up needing, but this number can be changed) which came out to around $3K
my bridal bouquet @ $250 or $275 I can’t remember.
6 Bridesmaids bouquets @ $85 each
Groom’s boutonniere @ $25
6 Groomsmen @$14 each
Dad’s/mom’s/grandma’s/grandpa’s is around $100 total
Ceremony decorations @ about $1200
