I had 101 guests! Your figure is more than reasonable! went to the Victor’s Garden District Ltd. I worked with Lenny…212-532-9838…

You should be okay. I was married in the Hudson Valley and spent around $1,000—$2,000 should be enough for 10 centerpieces, bouquet, etc.

The only place where it might not be enough is if you have a lot of bridesmaids and need a lot of bouquets and/or buttonieres, etc. $2,000 is normally in the low/minimum end for NYC florists, but you should be okay.

It does depend on what kind of flowers you want though.

Talk about what you want and have her give you a quote instead of giving her the budget right away, because they’ll price up to it, if you know what I mean. If you have to give a budget, start with say, $2000, to see what you can get.

My budget for my NYC wedding was 2k, but I told my florist 1k..so they think I ‘settled’ with $1500, but really I knew I could spend more…start low!
