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.

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.

@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!

@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! 😉
