It really depends what flowers are in season and what kind of look you are going for.  I would just reach out to a florist and ask them for a quote.  You can always go back to them and tell them you were planning to spend X on flowers and figure out where you can cut back.

Peonies and anemones tend to be rather expensive, although peonies will be in season in May.

That is a hugely open ended question and it all depends on the quantity of tables, the size of your floral arrangements etc.

You and I will have similar flowers and colors (I love Peonies!) and my wedding is also May 2012. My reception only cost will be about $3,500.00. That is for 19 tables with large bouquets and trailing flowers (hydrangeas).

Again, it all depends.

I second what louisianablue quoted, you might be looking around and above $2,000. If you plan to go through a wholesale it could get cheaper… it all depends though- really think about how much actual floral you want there… if you go with more filler greens (you might like seeded eucalyptus) the price will drop. peonies are lovely and expensive… you might want to tie in other big blooms that arent as expensive like dahlias or some garden roses. good luck!

Unless you’re planning on doing it yourself, I would just bite the bullet and talk to a florist.  Get a quote, then take that to another florist and get another quote.  Check and see what you can get in your area in November, and what would be ordered out of season.  That makes a huge difference.  If you LOVE peonies but they’re too expensive, then maybe just have some in your bouquet and match the colors with other flowers for the tables.

Good luck!
