Wow that’s a great price! Mine were $1000 for bridal party florals for bride, 6 bridesmaids, and 10 bouts.

That seems normal. I paid about $550 for a bridal bouquet, 3 bridesmaids bouqets and 4 bouts. I think my bouquet was less but the bridesmaids bouqets were more, so actually yours works out better.

glutton :  Sounds fair to me. You gotta consider too that Chicago is one of the most expensive US areas for weddings. I just checked and it’s number 4 after NYC, Long Is., and central/north NJ. I’m actually surprised Chicago surpasses southern CA area.

Gosh flowers in the USA are expensive. I’m paying $650 USA for the following –

4x bridesmaid bouquets

Bride bouquet

10x button hole

I’m doing my own centrepiece flowers with flowers from wholesalers. They wanted to charge me $80 a table.

Normal for a “real” florist from the quotes I got.  I went to Whole Foods instead and got the same thing I was asking for for less than half.  They just charge for the floral cost with no upcharge for arragement.

I DIY’d my flowers through Flower Moxie. Was quoted about $4000+ (truthfully I gave up after the first consult) for the flowers I ended up DIYing myself.

DIY cost was $1,500 for:

1 Bridal Bouquet

7 Bridesmai’s Bouquets

15 Boutineers

3 Pin on Corsages

3 Addition Centerpieces (I repurposed to bridesmaids)

80 bud vases (not wimpy ones I had full, huge flowers in each of these)

15 ft garland, seeded euc and agonis 

The best thing I ever did, achieved my pinterest vision, and got EXACTLY what I wanted without compromising. 


I only have a few pics, waiting on more profesh pics!

WNY area. Worth noting I am getting the majority of the centerpieces stuff on my own -candles, cake plate thing- and the florist is just going to add a little greenery. The “swag” is just a little flower thing for the gazebo where we are having our ceremony. and I did not choose buttonieres nor corsages for the parents; I think I might get pins (like metal stamped, classy ones – probably custom from etsy).

Bouquet (bride) $184.00
Bouquet (bridesmaids)(each x3) $33.00
Groom $11.00
Boutineer (each x3) $8.00
Swag $86.00
Centerpieces(12) $168.00
Delivery $54.00
Tax $54.78
Total cost $680.78

Considering that it’s Chicago, this is actually cheap! Usually bridesmaid bouquets start at $85+ for that area. It’s all super reasonable for the suburbs, so I’m surprised it’s not more if it’s actually from a florist in the city.
