You could order the Sams club 43 piece collection  (link #1) and the additional 6 green centerpieces (link #2) for a total of $1,100. They would come ready made and you would have all of your centerpieces and more than enough wedding flowers for approximately 1k less than this woman is quoting you. They come fresh to your door and you put them out.

EDIT: just realized you said 1k, nOT 2k. I think that is a decent price if you don’t want the hassle of DIY. Sorry for misreading

Avoid DIY in this case is better to be nervous spending that money than being nervous day before your wedding or on your wedding day…. good luck!

For what you’re asking for, I think that’s pretty reasonable. PS – love green hydrangea, that’s one of my main wedding flowers too!

I actually gave my florist the exact same photo…got to love Pinterest. She quoted me at 45 euros per vase, so it’s about the same. However, I’m only using those for the buffet tables. For the guest tables I’m going with something smaller – not only is it saving money, but a smaller centerpiece will not block the conversation from the person across the table.

Thats a pretty good price. Where I used to work, something like that would have been about 80-100 bucks before delivery. Hydrangea are kind of expensive, like 6-10 per head, depending on time of year and supplier, so I think thats a steal!
