    I’m sorry I don’t have answer for you!  I would guess the first option might be more expensive since it would involve more fresh cut flowers, but that’s just my guess.  Good luck!

    @Fallicious1012: Where in NY are you? You said NY brides so pricewise I can help you out a lil’ bit if I know where we are talking (and when you say tall – you have to talk height because the flowers themselves can be tall or the vases can be tall with some affordable flowers (like gladiolas, not orchids). ๐Ÿ™‚

    You have great taste! I think both are beautiful, but it seems that the new trend is the branches arrangement that is your second pick. I think both are gorgeous…. a lot of what you want pricewise is going to be dependent on what flowers you use but the tall vase (which can be costly if you purchase yourself or cheaper if you just rent from the florist) will most likely be a lot more expensive since it’s more blooms and more arrangement.

    However, the artistic arrangement of the branch centerpiece, the flowers used along with the branches and whether or not crystals are used as well will affect your price. The good thing is that a simple, small glass vase can be used which reduces the price significantly.

    What I would recommend is this – when you book your venue, look at the decor (is it a formal hotel? An outdoor tent reception?). There is no specific rule about what you need to have for a venue (it’s all about your style and taste) but I personally think the artistic vase and puffy, classic flower display (even if not roses, white peonies or green hydrangea would look gorgeous in that mix as well) would look great in a classic,e legant indoor venue and the branches would look better in a modern venue or an outdoor tent reception.

    Check out the boards on here and other popular wedding guides (the Knot has a regional guide they put out that is helpful for pinpointing vendors that have a lot of experience) to find out experienced florists, who can help show you the best flowers for what you’re looking for. Best of luck ๐Ÿ™‚

    when we were looking at florists, flower CPs were more expensive than branch ones.  this was back in 2010 though, so things could have definitely changed.  we ended up doing all white, high flower CPs, which actually looked somewhat similar to the photo you posted!
