That seems a bit high, though it’s hard to know.  My quote is $810 for my bouquet, 5 attendant bouquets, 7 boutonnieres (incl. groom), 7 corsages, 1 Flower Girl.  And all of these are spare no expense (e.g. we were talking special order roses or similar rare/expensive for the flowers). 

I might add that mine is one of the higher priced (though not highest) florists in my area.  I don’t know if MO is more expensive than MI, though.

MyFavorite you may try finding a wholesale florist in or around your area and doing it yourself or having a crafty friend do for you. I have also ordered from http://www.rosesource.com where the flowers come straight from the grower and are fedex’d to your house. They are so much cheaper. Peonies are in season in June and roses are almost always available…

That doesn’t sound bad to me.  We payed around $685 for the same numbers.

That seems very reasonable to me…but I’m not sure where you’re located or what flowers you are planning to use.

For the type of flowers you mentioned, I think that’s reasonable.  We paid $830 for the following – 1 bridal, 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man, 13 bouts, 7 coursages, 1 memory piece, 2 long stem roses and 21 pew decorations.  Our flowers were mostly gerbera daisies and hydrangea.

That sounds about average – especially for the flowers you want.  Does that include delivery?

That seems average.  I’m getting married in a small town so our options were limited too.  We’re paying $388 for one bouquet, 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, 3 boutoniers, and 3 corsages.  We’re using calla lillies and green roses.
