It seems a high for something made out of felt. This is pretty close to the cost of real flowers!

It depends on your area.  I live in DC, and the cost of real flowers is significantly more than that for me.

I think thats pretty resonable. The real flowers I want are about $150 for the bridal boquet, and $65 for each bridesmaid boquet.

Seems like the same cost of real flowers! A lot of florists will give you your toss bouquet for free. . . I know for my flowers the wristlets are $20-30, the bouts are $8, the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets are $60, and the bridal bouquet is $100+. For someone that’s fake. . . it doesn’t seem worth it to me. Can you maybe find cheaper?

That is far less than the cost of our real flowers, but I don’t really know how to compare it? I am not very familiar with felt flowers. If its in your budget and you love it, I say go for it! Its your wedding Laughing

I’m paying around $700 for bridal party flowers.  My bouquet is around $180-200 I think. Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets are $50-75 (5).  Toss bouquet is free.  Bouts were $10-13 (10) each and corsages were around $20 (4?) each I think.

So if you are buying them because you really love them I think it’s an okay price.  If you’re only going with them to try and save a lot of money by not using real flowers I don’t think it’s worth it.

Hm, well I looked up a florist in OP’s town [providing thats her actual town]. Prices seem a tad cheaper, it would probably come out to the same.

EDIT :
Bouts are a little over $10 each, upwards.

Everything else varies.. you can get a lovely bouquet starting at $90.

Corsages depend on how small/big you want them. Large ones are running $24, down from there.

It might be a tad more for fresh flowers, but honestly, I wouldn’t pay that much for felt flowers.

 

 

But it’s your wedding, if you want felt flowers, go for it!

For that cost, I would go with real flowers unless you are wanting the felt. Its not going to save you too much money if that is your priority.

@ldsilva:  We used fresh flowers, and we got married in Houston, where wedding prices are above the national average. We paid $10/bout and $50/bouquet, so I think the felt prices are high – but they are beautiful and it looks like they might take a lot of time to make. I LOOVE the look of those “giant blooms” – maybe you could keep looking on Etsy for another person who makes felt bouts and corsages, and see if you can find those for cheaper, but stick with the felt “giant blooms” from this person (who is really talented!)? I’ve definitely seen other cute felt bouts on Etsy, so I wouldn’t rule out other options if you are stuck on the look of felt flowers!

@ldsilva:  That sounds very comparable to real flowers in my opinion too.  The bouts are actually kind of expensive.  I’ve seen real floral bouts range from $5-$20 with most being around $14.

Do you like the felt flowers because of the price or because you want to keep them for sentimental reasons?  I’d say just go with real flowers.

Except for bridesmaid bouquets (my toss is included free so is pretty much equivalent to yours, and I chose cala lillies and orchids) , this is more money than my real flowers! My corsages/bouts are white roses and white carnations and closer to the $10-$14 dollar range. The only thing that is a real deal is the bridesmaid blooms. Like the rest of the bees are saying if you are set on the felt then go for it, but if you want more bang for your buck i’d definitely suggest real flowers! You can always dry your bouquet and keep it for a memory (but how long do you expect to keep it on display, for me I know it wouldn’t be terribly long) And is it something that you will look back on in 20 years and say, man I wish i would have done this differently? If so real flowers are definitely the way to go, classic and timeless!
