    My bouquet will be $125 and the BMs will be $60.  Mine has calla lillies, tulips, roses, etc in it.  I think that is about right for my area but I’m not positive.  I only know that the bouquet I originally wanted (all callas) was $450!  Yikes!

    @Saeliz: Mine are the exact same prices! I’m doing all white peonies and my BMs are getting pale pink peonies.

     

    @MadameLady: Pricing really depends on the size of the bouquet and what kind of flowers. My florist said that’s the one thing you should pick what you really want (in terms of flowers) because it’s your bouquet. Centerpieces and stuff you can always cut back on or substitute!

    I made mine and now working on selling them and eventually opening of a shop. I really fell in love with the wedding industry while I was planning my wedding!

    I have a friend who spent $1500 on flowers…and she didn’t have a bridal party. My bouquet was a little over $100.

    My bouquet was originally going to be about $100-$125 but I really didn’t feel like I was getting what I wanted. I went to the FTD website and found the arrangements that you can order to send to someone and there it was!! Hopefully, the florist will just let me use that arrangement and it will only cost $45. The Bridesmaid or Best Man will cost about $30. 

    Crossing my fingers. Have you thought about not ordering “wedding flowers”? That’s what I’m trying to do.

    Mine was about $175, made of callas, berries, some other lillies, succulents, orchids, and a couple other smaller flowers I’m forgetting. I knew mine was more expensive, so I “balanced” it out by doing just 3 stems of mokara orchids for the bridesmaids, which came in about $30 each but still looked really nice — very deliberate (versus…uh oh I ran out of flower budget!)

    I’m getting a seriously good bargain on my bouquet. It will cost me $75 for lilacs, ranunculous, garden roses, and sweet peas…not exactly cheap flowers, and I asked for a larger bouquet!
