Depends on where you live. Ours is similar so I’ll compare for you. We are doing ranunculus, anemones and English roses. For bridal bouquet, 2 bridesmaids, 4 bouteniers, 10 centerpieces (doubling as ceremony aisle decor), aisle petals, flower girl, 8′ arch decoration to double as sweetheart table decor, and set up it is about $1600.

To me that sounds reasonable especially with the peonies.  Sound beautiful.  Can’t wait to see the pictures.

Florists can be very expensive.  They have to cover their rent, employee salaries, etc.    Brides can save a small fortune by buying flowers direct from the grower and getting friends or family members to arrange them.    Consider peonies, they are so easy to work with.    I love the ones here http://www.bridgewatergardens.com/peony_page.html

We are in Pittsburgh, PA and we have:

1 – 11″ Bridal Bouquet – All ranunculus and cabbage roses

1 Toss Bouquet – All roses

2 – 8″ Maid/Matron of Honor Bouquets – Mix of ranunculus, cabbage roses, and less pricy look a-likes

4 – 7″ Bridesmaids Bouquets – Mix of ranunculus, cabbage roses, and less pricy look a-likes

1 Jr. Bridesmaid Bouquet

1 – 3 Flower all ranunculus and cabbage rose boutonnieres – Groom

2 – 2 Flower all ranunculus and cabbage rose boutonnieres – Best Men

4 – 1 Flower cabbage rose boutonnieres

3 – 2 Flower all ranunculus and cabbage rose boutonnieres – Fathers

2 – Jr. Groomsman/Ring Bearer 2 all ranunculus and cabbage rose boutonnieres

1 – Large Mother of the Groom Corsage

3 – Medium Grandmother Corsage

All ranunculus 4 tier cake flowers

 

In Total we got a 25% discount from winning a package at a wedding show and we are paying Roughly $960 after taxes. If we didn’t have the discount it would have been around $1300 with taxes included.

 

I feel like you might be getting a pretty good deal for CA. Maybe call around to a few more shops outside of your immediate ceremony/reception area and check prices if you are not comfortable with this price. Maybe going 25-50 miles out of your current range will open up some lower prices (if you are getting married in a city). Most places I have come across chare $50-200 for delivery, which might save you in the long run. I have found that venues/places outside of PGH have MUCH lower prices than those located downtown!

 

Hope this helps and best wishes!

liameowchelle:  I would say it is good for CA. I live in PA, USA and I’m getting similar quotes for not nearly as many roses. This shit is too expensive!!!

It sounds reasonable.  I spent $3700 at the end of the day In NJ so i think you’re a go.
