- Wedding: June 2012
Hey everyone! My main struggle in planning my wedding has been the florist. Everything else is basically done, but I can’t wrap my head around the cost of the flowers. It’s hard to tell what’s normal. Right now, I like this florist because she seems to understand what I want, but it just seems expensive.
So, if you remember the cost of your flowers, could you please answer this questionnaire? Thanks so much!!

The florist I am considering right now:
Location of Florist: City of Chicago (near Lincoln Park)
Types of Flowers Used: Ranunculus, dahlias, peonies, spray roses, garden roses, craspedia, muscara orchids (a couple in my bouquet), hydrangea, sweet peas
Using Greens or Fillers and What Type? [Y/N and Type] No greens, but she is adding hydrangea to keep the cost down.
Cost of Bridal bouquet: 200
Cost of Bridesmaid bouquet (each): 160 if she does mixed flowers (what I want) or 80 if she does them all one flower (like 5 peonies or 7 dahlias). I am not sure why tying 5 flowers together costs $80, but that’s why I am asking you!

Does the Florist Provide Vases? No. She rents but doesn’t have a large selection.
