location is key to this question. cities cost more than suburbs and rural areas.


for reference, i will probably spend $400 on flowers and 100% DIY…. just for the flowers to put it all together. this is in san francisco (very expensive)

About $200. 

I had life flowering plants for centerpieces. Which was under $10 each.

Made my own bouquets and buttnrs. For about $50.

Then we had some extra decorations which was probably an extra $50.

We ended up paying $650 for our florals.

This included my boquet and toss boquet. 3 Bridesmaid or Best Man boquets, 4 corsages, 6 bouts,  and for our centerpieces 3 bunches of spray roses, 3 bunches of delphinium and a bunch of orange unique roses.

We did also add some grocery store flowers (backdrop deco, memorial table deco, cake table, rose peatals for flower girl, etc) which cost about another $30

We paid under $250 for ours.  However, we had just:

  • 2 bridal bouquets
  • 1 Maid/Matron of Honor bouquet
  • 1 bout

Our ceremony and reception decorations were all nonfloral, except for some freeze-dried rose petals we scattered in various places at the reception.

I only got:

  • One bridal bouquet for $85
  • One Maid/Matron of Honor bouquet for $65
  • Two bouts for $10 each.

I got these from a local florist rather than one who specializes in weddings, in a location that is generally expensive for wedding stuff.

Here is what I would estimate for your cost

8 centerpieces – $40-$60 each depending on the florist, location, etc.  Probably not much lower than $40 each but could be up to $100 depending on intricacy.

1 Bridal bouquet – $100-$150 Splurge here if you can because it will be in all the pictures and its the one set of flowers you will remember.

2 Wrist corsages for mothers – $20 each, again get something nice but simple.

2 Bridesmaid or Best Man – $50-$80 – Try to go for something simple but pretty since they will be in pictures

1 Maid/Matron of Honor – $80-$100 or just do 3 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, it probably won’t really matter.

5 boutonnieres – $10-$15 each again, just pick something simple.  The cost comes from the labor of making these.

3 floral arrangements for tables (gift, guestbook, favor) – $75-$150 depending on how large etc.  Maybe you could use candles or just silk petals for these tables?  The gift table and the favor table will have enough on the table anyways.  Maybe just another small centerpiece for the guestbook table?

Dear All

After reading this post, i am freaking about my flower budget!!!

b/c my family requests to have corsages and boutainners for family members.. i guess that’ s what they do in Asian families or something..

so it’s going to 60 corsages/boutianners total! along with the bride,  Bridesmaid or Best Man, mother and mother in law, etc…

What should I do? 

I keep telling my parents I want to DIY, but they said there’s so NO way I could do all this 1 day before! )”:
