Hi Bees, I’ve just received my final quote for the flowers. With everything, it comes to $1.5k. I was just wondering how much you paid or are expecting to pay for flowers?
If there are any aussie bees out there, very interested to hear your figures.
Make me feel better…….

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.
Wrist corsage for sister
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.

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 🙂
