    For 7 floral centrepieces, 4 bouquets and greenery to decorate the ceremony chairs and gazebo, we’re looking at a wholesale price of $550 including tax. We’re arranging everything ourselves so that’s just for the flowers – no labour included. 

    This type of post screams for a poll!

    Haven’t signed the contract yet, but ours will be around $1500 as well. 

     

    This includes my bouquet and toss bouquet, 4 bridesmaids bouquets, 1 flowergirl bouquet (her request), groom’s boutonniere, 4 groomsmen boutonnieres, 2 mother corsages, 2 father boutonnieres, 2 grandmother corsages, 3 grandfather boutonnieres, 2 usher boutonnieres, 1 MC boutonniere, 1 brother boutonniere, head table spray and various single flowers for our tables (1 hydrangea for 15 tables, 3 spider mums or anemones for the other 15 tables). 

    We’re putting together all of our centerpieces, so it doesn’t include labour for those.

    Phew! I really hate how much we’re spending on flowers, actually. But oh well!

    $800 for me. No bridesmaids or groomsmen, that saved a lot. The flowers are red roses, yellow calla, and green kermit.

    Bouquet

    Boutonniere

    Wrist corsage for sister 

    9 centerpieces

     

    My friend had her wedding flowers done by the same lady and it cost $2800 because she had 5 bridesmaids, 5 groomsmen, and many more tables.

    Damn.

    I’m looking at over 3k for my flower bill. I thought my budget was low. Some florists out here won’t even work with you unless you have a budget of more than 5k.

    I don’t believe it but it was 50$…we got married on a farm and used wild flowers available to us in the fields. My bridesmaids and I put on rubbber boots and picked them ourselves. We did add fresh store-bought flowers so cost was $50. One of our guests is a flower artist, so she made the flower arrangements for the tables.

    Also, I opted for no bouquet, and wore a belt with a large flower feature instead. I always find bouquets are in the way of brides, from the weddings I’ve seen. Both my hands were free 🙂
