    the moms’ flowers sound high, and i would ask her to throw in the toss bouquet for free. everything else sounds pretty reasonable.

    Flowers are exensive, plain and simple. It sounds like a lot of money but thats actually a great deal!

    I think the rates seem fair!  I agree with kitzy that the Mom’s wristlet and bouquet seem a bit high.

    Yeah, flowers in my area are about 1k for that. It seems average to me. This is why we aren’t doing fresh flowers. I just don’t feel it’s worth the price of a 1-day decoration.

    The rates they are asking seem like what I am paying.  But I am getting my toss bouquet for free. Ask that they throw it in.

    For orchids and feathers and hydrangeas and the amounts you’re getting it looks like a reasonably good deal to me. Not a steal or anything, but quite good.

    I think that’s the going rate, unfortunately.  If you have a crafty friend, you might enlist them to help.  I took a flower arranging class last year and it wasn’t “too” hard…your friend could make the corsages without much skill.

    That’s about average.  Have you considered working with an up-and-coming florist to save on cost?  Or perhaps purchasing your flowers wholesale yourself and hiring someone to design them (your wedding planner/designer could probably do this)?

    That sounds about right.. my florist is giving me a toss bouquet for free though. Anything else for the reception?

    That seems reasonable to me.  The only one I think that is a little high is the mothers, although your description sound quite elaborate so probably matches price.

    Wow, that actually looks good to me. If you’re saying this is expensive, then I’m in good shape for my budget. I only budgeted $300 for flowers… mainly because I don’t care about them. So it looks like if I don’t get all the frills and fancies I can find something within my budget.

    Looks fine to me. I was thinking over a thousand was normal.
