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. 🙂

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.

$600 for

  • bride bouquet ($165)

  • 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets ($45)

  • 10 bouts ($13.50-$10)

  • 4 corsages ($25, $18)

  • toss bouquet ($25)

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.

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.
