Got a cost breakdown from my florist and naturally wanted to run it past the bees.
White dahlias and peonies, seeded eucalyptus, silk ribbon- $190
Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets:
Seeded eucalyptus, pom pom dahlias, raununculus, lotus pods, wax flowers- $70 each
Boutonnieres and wrist corsages:
Raununculus and eucalyptus- $20 each
Four hydrangea blooms in cream, moss green, lavender, and deep purple in a small glass vase- $90 each
Any of these seem outrageous?

Yes as a floral stylist myself I can say that these prices are extremely high.

I don’t think so, it’s less than I’m paying. Are you located in a major city? Floral prices are very relative to the market in my experience, frankly all things wedding seem to be. Ranunculous are also very expensive flowers. My bouts are less closer to $10 but it is likely the ranunculous driving up the cost of yours.

Sounds within reason, especially if, as said above, you’re in a city. Mine are lower, but I’m using daisies which are cheap, so almost all my cost is labor.

seems reasonable to me. the only thing that sticks out to me is that the boutonniere is the same price as the corsages. my florist is charging me $10 for boutonnieres and $28 for wrist corsages.

These seem pretty reasonable, peonies are pretty expensive (but sooo pretty!)

I guess I should have clarified in my post that I’m getting married in Raleigh, NC. I suck at posting!

I am getting married in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and have someone who is not affiliated with a floral design shop doing the flowers so my pricing is a little less b/c there is no overhead. I was quoted $60 for bridesmaids bouqets and $100 for mine. However…I am using dahlias in the fall when they are in season they are very inexpensive. I decided just to DIY the bridesmaids bouquets to save money. The peonies and ranauculus are expensive and are probably raising the cost. What month are you getting married-that also makes a difference. Your centerpiece costs seem high considering it is a simple design… I hope this helps.
