I know it varies but what was the cost of your flowers (centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages)? I’m going to get an estimate this weekend after meeting with the florist today and I want to know if it’s a good deal or highway robbery lol

Kaites4: hehehe . I was thinking today about starting a thread asking bees to post a pic of their centerpieces and how much they were charged

Mine was $800 in Toronto and included 1 bridal bouquet, 3 bridesmaids bouquets, 3 mother corsages, 2 father bouts and 5 groom(smen) bouts. My choice of flowers were not in-season, so they cost her extra to have them shipped in.

Mine is almost 1000. It is my bouquet, a toss one. 3 bridesmaids. 6 corsages, 8 bouts. 12 smaller centre pieces. An arragement for the head table, and 6 small vases for around the venue.

Right at about $500, but we didn’t do centerpieces (our venue took care of decor.) The 500 included my bouquet, 9 boutonnieres, and 6 corsages. I had my brothers stand with me instead of bridesmaids, so that’s why there are so many boutonnieres and only my bouquet.

I found someone who has a new business out of her home studio and has done 3 weddings. My total cost with her is $1400 (including delivery + tax); for that price I am getting my bouquet (orchids, peonies, roses, hydrangea), 4 bridesmaid bouquets (peonies), 8 boutonieres, 2 corsages and 11 tall centerpieces (cherry blossoms).
My florist allowed me to source the vases for the centerpieces saving me $300. For a point of reference, my wedding is in Boston Massachusetts. All the other quotes that I received were over $3000 and one was $2100.

I live in Tallahassee and mine is about $750 with delivery and tax. This includes 4 hydrangea Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, 1 larger hydragea bridal bouquet, a hydrangea arrangement for the altar at the church, 12 pew arrangements which include one hydragea stem and a bow, 8 white rose boutonnieres, and 4 rose corsages. We decided not to DIY the centerpieces.

Mine was $430. I had my bouquet, 5 mini bouquets for 3 adult BMs and 2 JBMs, 6 boutonnières for Darling Husband, 2 Groomsmen 3 Dads, and 1 Round Brilliant who didn’t end up participating because he got scared (Best man’s sister, also our ceremony musician, put it in her hair), 2 corsages for the officiant (my pretend mom, haha) and MOG, 2 aisle sprays tied to chairs, rose petals strewn around our triple-wick candles, and cake flowers.
My flowers were venice gerbera daisies, pink gerbera daisies, and pink titantic roses. The rose petals were also pink.
Oh, and I got married in SoCal

The first estimate I received was more than $5,000, but I was able to find something that I liked better for about $3,600. You’ll definitely find a range of pricing, depending on the quantity and types of flowers you want as well as the type of vendor you select, and, of course, the market in which you live or are holding your event.

It’s going to vary widely because one persons centerpieces may be simple small low flower bowls and the others may be huge towering waterfall arrangements.
I was quoted $750 for 1 bride bouquet, 5 bridesmaids, 8 boutonnières, 3 corsages and 2 arrangements for the church. I told the florist that I like hydrangea, carnations, roses, and football mums, and that I don’t really care what flowers are in things as long as they are the right colour families. I also told her I have no issues with using a floral spray paint to make them the right colours.
Centerpieces we are going to diy, I priced it out to be $450 for flowers from costco, the vases are part of our decor package, and we’re going to need probably 5-6 cans of floral spray paint. I’m ordering all the centerpiece flowers in white and tinting some of them because I want a very very soft peachy colour and costco doesn’t have much for colour options. We’re having 3 vases per table, a hydrangea stem and 4 roses per vase, and probably looking at 20-25 tables.

sochic: that is good for Boston (also from the area)! Too bad we’re getting married in the Berkshires or I’d beg you for a name! Lol
I know it’ll vary, just looking for numbers. Thanks!
