The prices seem resonable to me.  In fact, it seems like you got a pretty good deal.  Maybe in order to lower the prices on the flowers, some suggestions:

1- Bouquet of rose to the Virgin Mary (this can be scaled down to maybe a smaller bouquet of roses or use daisies instead).  You aren’t going to be able to enjoy these flowers anyways so you don’t have to spend a lot on these flowers.  You would rather use this bouquet for the toss instead because it’s more visible and can be enjoyed.

2- Centerpieces (You are having peonies & english roses).  English roses almost resemble peonies when they are in bloom, so perhaps you can just not have peonies (they are pretty pricey) and just opt for the english roses with your gerber daisies & roses arragement.

3- Torches (how about if you use less torches to light the way.  Instead of 20, maybe you can just cut down to 16; every little bit helps).

Wow!  Sorry for the long post!  Good luck with your wedding plans!

I too think that sounds super reasonable from the prices I was quoted.  (it was still out of my price range too)

I ended up going with a local grocery store- since I wanted something super simple and flowers were not where I wanted a lot of "bang"

yeah it sounds reasonable to me too…sorry! i think swapping your blooms for something a little less pricy would help in the cost, like ms jadey mentioned.

Sounds reasonable for a florist.  I could not afford what I was quoted and ended up going to the Downtown LA flower district instead.

Wow, I guess this goes to show how out of it I am, because I read that and thought "$150 for lights???" Please tell me that it’s like, millions of lights and that they’re amazing somehow.
