    Sounds about average to me, if not a bit on the low side. I’m in northern / central NJ and I’m paying about $2,500 for what you listed, minus the ceremony arch, plus 12 centerpieces and 2 ceremony arrangements. I would say the centerpieces and ceremony arrangements add about $1,500 to the total bill, so I think we’re in the same ballpark.

    On the other hand, if you go with Costco or Whole Foods for your bouquets and bouts, you could probably get everything for $500 – $800, plus the cost of the ceremony arch. The drawback there is you have to set up and deliver everything yourself.

    sleepymelis:  not true about set up and delivery at whole foods! They deliver AND set up! (I am getting mine from there and am sooo happy)

    I think that sounds about right. I am getting My bouquet, 4 bridesmaids bouquets, 6 boutonnieres, 2 corsages, flower arch for ceremony, flower clusters for the cake, 10 small centerpieces and 6 mid-size centerpieces for about $1,800 in Southern California.
