I have no idea if ths is a good deal or not on flowers. Do these prices seem about right??
examples I showed the florist:
Boutineers, groom will have some dusty miller
The total pricing for all my flowers:

- Wedding: September 2015 - Contemporary Art Center of Peoria
Seems about average from where I’m from. (Central IL)

That looks very similar to what I paid for mine – I used carnations for my BMs and had 10 Hydrangea centerpieces.
You’ll need a surprising amount of baby’s breath for those bouquets.
It seems pretty reasonable to me.

FutureMrsPrim: I’m from NY land of rip offs and those seem high to me. My bouquet was $175 for peonies, hydrangeas, orchids, and roses. I’m assuming the $120 for the bridesmaid’s bouquets is for all three and not just one. While that’s not horrible, I do think it’s high for being just baby’s breath.

i’d be careful DIYing babysbreath. as PP stated, its cheap per stem but it takes a LOT of stems to get a full effect. a tiny BB bouquet looks bad imo. Big poufs/clouds (like you pictured) are romantic and beautiful

It seems a bit expensive to me and I got married in NJ (high prices). Especially since bridesmaid bouquets are made of baby’s breath. Our boutoniere’s were roses and hand tied with baby’s breath and were only $6 each, my bouquet was right around the same amount of flowers/elaboration as what you chose and it was $175. I don’t think the quote is outrageous but I would ask for a discount or at the very least a cash discount (request 5-10%).

FutureMrsPrim: the only thing that sticks out to me is your bouquet and the bouts.
I had a cascading bouquet and I think I paid $160 for it and the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets were $65.
The flowers in my bouquet were roses, mini calalilys and in the BMs they had roses, mini calalilys and hydrageas.
The bouts I paid $10 and I am in NY where everything is pricey
Maybe you can do the Bridesmaid or Best Man yourself?

I live in Miami, and my bouquet that will look similar to this photo is priced at $200.
Have you met with more than one florist? Make sure to get three quotes.

FutureMrsPrim: The bridesmaid’s bouquets are much too high. I can go to the grocery store and get three bunches of baby’s breath for $12, which would make one large bridesmaid’s bouquet. Compared to $40 a piece? I would be DIYing that one.

My bouquet was a simialr price for different varieties of roses, dahlias, orchids, succulents, dusty miller, etc. so I’d say that cost is fair (although boy was I shocked when I got my quote lol), What I’m surprised about in yours is the bridesmaids’ bouquets: $40 each for baby’s breath seems expensive, even if you do need a lot of it. We didn’t do bouts so I can’t speak to that.

The overall price seems ok. The wedding party flowers seem a bit pricey- particularly the boutineers. The wedding ceremony flowers seem very low to me.
