Here is what is included for the price (no tax):
– My bouquet
– 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets
– 2 Wrist corsages for Mom’s
– 2 simple, small arrangements for our wedding
– Guest book arrangement in a large mint julep cup, I will provide
– Cake flower/teeny arrangement to go in a tea cup
The flowers used will be anemones (if available), rununculus, peonies, stock,hydrangea, tea roses, dusty miller and camellia leaves. If I choose to go with all one color carnation (I like the look of poufym full arrangements) it will be even less for the guest book and ceremony arrangements.
I think this is good considering the flowers and the style of the florist. Thoughts?

I think it sounds reasonable. No bouts for fellows?
I’ve pretty much budgeted $100-$200 for my bouquet (and I’m not planning to have a big or elaborate one); it’s probably $60ish for Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets. $20 for corsages and $5-10 for bouts. So I think your quote is reasonable.

@Coral99: DIYing my own bouquets (similar to yours, 1 bride, 1 Maid/Matron of Honor, 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man, 2 nosegay, 10 aisle) and it’s costing me just under $300 for the wholesale flowers, so I’d say you’re getting a pretty good deal, especially since you’ve got things like peonies in your arrangements. When you say no tax, do you mean there isn’t any tax or the tax isn’t included? Not getting taxed on wedding stuff is pretty awesome.

@Anise: Nope. No bouts. Fiance & his brother are doing pocket squares. My bouquet is quoted at $145. I felt that was great.
@housebee: Thanks!! I meant that price doesn’t reflect tax yet because there might e small changes. And then there could be fees. That’s just the flat price I was quoted.

I think that my cousin got her’s cheaper and DIYed her flowers from Bloomsbythebox.com

That’s awesome! I think that’s a good price for flowers, delivery, set up and break down.

I’m having a small wedding, but we’ll be doing a lot of flowers on our tables for centerpieces. We’re paying around $1,000, but it sounds like we’ll be using more flowers. I think yours are reasonable, especially since you’re using peonies which are on the expensive side.

I think that’s a great price!! Especially for those flowers! Peonies, rununculus, and hydrangea can be really expensive.

@TaurianDoll: Thank you! I thought so too! I really care about my flowers but don’t need a ton of them. We are getting married in a gorgeous park and our reception site provides flowers…likely hydrangea! I feel we lucked out there.

@Coral99: I was a little skeptical at first, but considering the types of flowers you requested, I think it’s reasonable. And it sounds so pretty!
My bouquet alone was $150 and it was arranged with garden roses, dahlias, hanging amaranthus, etc. – all expensive flowers. Your package sounds about right.
Can you post a pic of your venue? I’m so intrigued, sounds gorgeous!

@Mrs. Wallaby: They quoted my flowers at $145, so I feel more confident you told me that. However, I plan on having a tussy mussy, which means I will have less flowers. I imagine you didn’t have one, so I’m curious to know if her price to me is for assembly? I can’t imagine it’s that hard. I used to work in a flower shop and you really just load them in there. I should maybe ask again…but I’m finding she isn’t really responsive, but she’s nice when we actually do talk.
We are getting married here:

@Coral99: Woww that’s pretty!!
Considering you have experience working in a flower shop, you can probably negotiate with her a little further – she’ll probably take you seriously. My bouquet was pretty big, and it was hand-tied (not wired) but still – big enough that it would’ve taken some time to put together. On the other hand, sticking flowers in a vase isn’t that hard. And since tussy mussies are on the smaller side and hold less flowers, the physical cost of your bouquet should be less than average. You might as well bring up the price of your bouquet, and ask if she could lower it since it’s less flowers and doesn’t take as much labor to arrange. All of these little things add up when you’re planning a wedding! 😉
