I am in NYC so also more than average BUT we negotiated our florist down by almost 30%!  We just told her we really liked her work and we loved her style, but they were well out of our price range.  We went line by line, and ended up with a number in between our budget and her original estimate.  So we still spent more than we planned, but we feel like we reached a fair agreement.

The cost will depend a lot on where you live since labor is a big component to the cost.

1 Bridal Bouquet

2 Bridesmaids Bouquets

1 Coursage

7 Bouts

1 Alter arrangment

A BUNCH of other small misc arrangments. We even ended up with flowers left over that we took to the site in a bucket. My girls just put them out where they looked best and it was beautiful!
