The price really depends on the area and how much the florists think they can get away with charging. Wedding flowers are also marked up 20% from what they would charge for a "non-wedding" corsage etc.

Most bridal bouquets alone will cost a few hundred dollars or more, and all of the flowers and centerpieces tend to run a few thousand altogether.

If you’re looking for a more affordable option, I suggest having a grocery chain with floral department do your flowers. (i.e. Stop & Shop or Price Chopper). I’m not sure where you’re located so I dont know what stores for sure. They have standard wedding packages that start around $500.00 No matter what some people think, the floral manager is usually a REAL florist thats in charge of making wedding flowers, so you dont have to worry that some 16 year old is going to be the one throwing something together for your bouquet.

That’s fantastic… I think you got a great deal, even for a small town! Do you know what kind of flowers you’re using?

I’m doing peonies, cabbage roses, and callas, and the things you listed for me will be $400 from Wegmans.  They’re also doing my centerpieces and ceremony decorations.  It’s going to be about $1000 total, but still a pretty good price!  I’m in Rochester.

NYAmber, late May.  There were some things I liked that they said they probably couldn’t order for me, such as sweetpea, but she didn’t say anything about not being able to get garden roses, so I’m assuming they are a go.  I’m not sure about the not being able to get them commercially, as I have a friend who used them for her sister’s wedding, but I don’t know where they came from.   I can’t do raunculus because they will probably be gone by then, but they’re pretty also!
