I have my first appointment with a florist coming up. She asked me what my budget is for flowers so she knows to steer me in the right direction when it comes to flower.
I do not want anything over the top, just simple but elegant.
What are the Bee’s spending on flowers? What was your flower budget? Did you go over or under? What did this include?

Our flowers were around 10k. That included our chuppah, bridal bouquet, 5 bridesmaids bouquets, a kissing ball for the flower girl, 10 boutineers and 5 corsages for moms/grandmothers. As well as cocktail hour arrangements and 20 centerpieces for the ceremony tables. I think the original budget was $200/table for centerpieces, but we went with crystal candelabras which was a $200 upcharge. The majority of the flowers were different types of roses. This was in New England fyi.
