How much does it cost for everything except centrepieces? This could include ceremony decorations, head table decor, etc. And of course bouquets and all that.
Our centrepieces are included with the price of the venue, and I would imagine these would be a big chunk of the cost (which I have searched for around here).

Our florist was pretty expensive IMO but I guess “normal” for this area. Those are the exact prices taken from our contract, without centerpieces:
canope flowers: 900$
aisle decor: 200 (8*25)
aisle runner: 75
lobby decor: 275
reception area decor:150
cake decor: 50 (what a rip off!!!)
bridal bouquet: 175
attendants bouquet: 75 each
flower girls, MOB, MOG flowers: 25 each
boutonniers: 8 each
(Set-up fee: 150)

@MissKit: I think everything was a little under 500. We went to a lady who is about to retire from a large popular floral shop and is starting to do this on her own here and there. 🙂 My sister in law spent close to 800 last year and went to a small town floral shop. I guess it really depends, shop around. 🙂

Thanks! This helps. We’re going to be looking at florists soon so I just wanted a rough idea.

No flowers so my floral cost is $0.
My bouts and corsages are satin and handmade, and they cost $340, and my bouquets are the same, they cost $500. That’s it.

I haven’t pulled the trigger yet but this is how it looks so far (with prices off the website)
Boutonnieres 10 Party plus FFIL/Daddy/Grandfathers X $7 = $70
Bouquets 6 Mine plus 5 in Party X $33 = $165 (or @$43 = $215)
Might have Mom/FMIL and grandmothers have feminine boutonnieres – 5 X $7 = $35
So for us that’s $270 – $315 for the party (no centerpieces) and then +/- $40 for delivery (if we get it).
I will have ribbon on hand to tie our bouquets since they arrive in vases – but not in the suffocating, tightly wrapped mummy looking bouquet look – just ribbon to keep them together long enough to get down the aisle and back. ‘Wedding bouquets’ at my same flower shop cost $147 – $170 A PIECE. No thank you.
Because we are doing it this way I can afford to buy about 10 more bouquets to split into the vases on the tables.
We are a relatively small town – but I can’t imagine that a regular bouquet price would differ that much nationally…

$475 plus $50 delivery (delivery was with centerpieces and set-up, though, which I haven’t enumerated here)
- 1 bride bouquet = $120
- 3 bridesmaid bouquets at $75/ea = $225
- 7 boutonnieres at $15/ea = $105
- 1 toss bouquet = $25
All flowers were in season, but I did get a good variety of them (dahlias, garden roses, safari sunsets, purple cabbage, and hypericum berries).

Not including centerpieces, our florist is about $3,500 – that includes my bouquet, 10 BMs bouquets, 13 boutonnieres, and ceremony decorations. This was the cheapest florist we looked at.

- 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets ($45)
2 Ceremony arrangements: $200 ($100 each)
Delivery and setup is extra on top of that ($115)- but they are doing my centerpieces ($50 ea) so I don’t mind paying them to come setup.
I talked to quite a few and I got estimates normally around $700 for the personal flowers.
Mine are all in season: lisianthus, dahlias, mini green hydrangeas, hydrangeas etc.

my bouquet: 225
girls bouquets: 4 x 75 = 300
Plus all the corsages and ceremony decorations…
Probably about 1K

I have $1000 for flowers. That includes brides bouquet, 4 bridesmaids, groom and 4 groomsmen bouts, and soo many corsasges that I can’t even remember how many! I thought it was a great price! I also swapped out some real flowers for silk flowers in the bridesmaid bouquets.
