All of that pricing seems fairly reasonable to me.

It does seem fairly priced to me too, but I havent met with any florists yet so I’m not sure!

For what you want, it seems okay to me!

Yeah very reasonable to me!

From what I have experienced so far it’s very reasonable. I am having similar flowers with the blue dendrobium orchid (one of the most expensive flowers) white roses and cala lilies (another expensive flower).

I’m doing all orchids as well and your pricing is about what I got. So seems reasonable to me.

Ditto to everyone above me! Everything looks cheaper than what I am paying 🙁 Except for bouquet – we are paying the same.

Orchids are very expensive. But if you are worried that you are paying too much, get quotes from a few more florists.

I think in general, those are very reasonable prices, except for your submerged orchids and floating orchids. Those blue orchids are dendrobium orchids. They are roughly $2-3 per stem wholesale, and i bet your florist can get it for less. Each stem has multiple blooms. They can make 2 of your floating centerpieces with 1 stem. I think that is a rather high markup for a low effort piece, but I think it’s actually your candles that drove up the price. However,that is the nature of wedding flowers. All in all, I think you got a reasonable deal.

Thanks to everyone who voted and responded!! You’ve all helped me a lot! 🙂
We are considering nixing the extra boutonieres (for our dads and grandfathers) as well as the wristlet corsages (for our mother-figures and grandmothers)… It would save us a lot of money. Is that horrible…? I don’t know the etiquette. 🙁
I plan on investigating how much it would cost to create my own centerpieces… so I will try to save there, too! 🙂
