Lets think about this for a minute. Typical costs for these things are as follows:
Bridal bouquet: $150
Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets: $50 each (low ball) x 7= $350
bouts/corsages: $20 each x 16= $320
rose bouquets: $75 each x 2= $150
tall centerpieces: $100 each x 10= $1,000
short centerpieces: $65 x 10= $650
So that estimate right there is $2620 and that doesnt include any of the stuff I said you could DIY. Again, I think you are getting off REALLY well.

That is seriously a good deal for everything you have listed. I am paying $1200 for 8Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, my bouquet, 5 corsages and 8 boutineers. I’d rather have the prices of your lady by far!

Wow. You are really lucky to be getting all of that for only $1500. I had to cut almost everything out of my floral budget just to get it down to $1700. And my reception is going to look seriously sparse.

Sounds like a steal to me!
Centrepieces definitely add a lot to the cost. We’re paying $100/each for our tall centrepieces and $60/each for our shorter ones so that right there is about $1500 (for the number of tables we anticipate having).
Sounds like you are getting some serious bang for your buck!

Okay, so moral of this thread is shut up and be happy with what I have, right? Thanks. Sometimes it takes others to put things into perspective for you!

That is an awesome price! I am paying $4,000 for a little less than that.

Just a thought if you don’t care about what flowers you are getting, etc. Go check out your local farmer’s market. I know that DIY’ing your own flowers may be tricky, but it’s worth a shot!
