Hi, I recently met with a few florists who quoted me close to $5,500.00 total for everything. All I want is white hydrangeas in a vase where you can see the stems plus bouquets, corsages, boutineers etc. Our bridal party has 5 people on each side. We dont need flowers for the church or cocktail hour… am I neive or is this normal.

It really depends on where you live. Obviously a big city is going to cost a lot more than a rural town.

erinc92615: To me that sounds really high, but like PP said, it’s very location dependent. We got quoted less than $400 for a 4 bouquets, 4 bouts, 2 corsages. Perhaps its the hydrangeas?

erinc92615: It depends on where you live and whats in season. I also wanna say Hydrangeas are one of the most enpensive flowers our there….. I found that our with my 1st meeting with the florist.

erinc92615: It depends on where you live and quantity. If you’re living in NYC and have 50 tables and you want hydrangeas on each table, it’s not bad. If you’re living in South Bend and you have 5 tables, this is way overpriced. We need more info!

I think it really depends on where you live! In my small town in Ontario I’m only paying $1,400, but that might be largely because I don’t have large flowers in my center pieces.

do you have a picture of the vase arrangment, and how many you need and of course location,

erinc92615: You didn’t include the amount…how many centerpieces are we talking? Kind of an important piece of information.
If it helps you at all, I’m in metro Detroit, and paying just under $2K for 22 low centerpieces, two high centerpieces, 4 bridesmaid bouquets, 7 boutteniers, and 2 corsages. We are doing ivory roses and hydrangeas.

That sounds kinda high to be honest.
I live in the DC area and for $4500 I am getting 13 tall centerpieces with ranuncules, red/pink/blush roses, carnations, pink lillies, and hydrangeas. I am getting a huge red roses and pink orchids arrangement for the guest book table, and similar one but low for the sweetheart table. My bouquet, 6 bridesmaid bouquets, 6 crosages, and 6 bouts. Set up and picking up of everything as well.

We were quoted around 5000 for flowers, too. That included centerpieces (I think we had 18 guest tables), my bouquet, 4 BM bouquets, flowers for the moms and readers, and 9 bouts. We also had arrangements on the cocktail hour tables and the escort card table.
I’m also in the DC area.
