Mine is $2200 for a bouquet for me and 3 bridesmaids, 8 boutonnieres, 4 corsages (divorced and remarried parents, so lots of those little things), 15 centerpieces, 10 cocktail table tiny arrangements, small aisle chair florals, ceremony altar garland, sweetheart table garland, and I think that’s it. 

It’s a great deal (I think) because the florist is relatively new and she said she just charges for the flowers, not her time while she’s building experience. We found her through our photographer.

I was surprised by the great price since this company has been in business for over 20 years but it is family owned which they usually give a little bit of a break.

I had one huge bridal bouquet, one ginormous Maid/Matron of Honor bouquet, one flower girl crown, 10 centerpieces (5-6 vases of various sizes on each table), 5 bouts, 3 corsages, cake flowers, 2 giant ceremony arrangements, 8 mason jar bouquets hanging from the aisles, and 5 cocktail table arrangements for $2200.  It seemed like an amazing abundance of flowers.  I couldn’t think of any other possible way I could have wanted more.

I did my own flowers. I purchased 250 roses from Global rose.com for under $200. I got them in ivory, pink and lavender and I was able to choose the specific shades of all the colors. I spent about another $100 on vases, ribbons and pins. I made:

 

1 bridal bouquet

2 bridesmaid bouquets

5 bouts

18 small centerpieces 

3 large arrangments (card table, ceremony table, rememberance table)

Cake flowers

Flowers for chairs that lined the aisle

 

I had way too many flowers, I could have ordered less. Many peope told me they were some of the most beautiful roses they had ever seen. I kept my flowers very simple but I love how they turned out. I wanted tons of flowers and this was the only way I could do it without paying a fortune. A few pics…….

Bridesmaid bouquet and my bouquet

~$7500 in Los Angeles for:

1 Bridal bouquet/1 toss bouquet

4 bridesmaids

1 Groom/4 groomsmens boutineers

1 ring bearer

2 flower girls (flower tiaras)

2 moms

2 dads

Ceremony arrangements (at a park)

Arrangements at my house

Card table/guest book table + cake table

~20-25 centerpieces (and these have to be pretty big since my venue’s tables are friggin massive)

This all includes tall gold vases and candelabras and other table decorations (like votives)

And even then, I got a really, really good discounted price because the florist is friends with Future Mother-In-Law. I got some crazzzzzy quotes from other florists (12-15K range) 😁

Mine is only around $1,300!

my bouquet, 4 bridesmaid bouquets, total of I think 4 or 5 boutiners, 2 corsages ,2 moms bouquets ( my mother refused to wear a corsage SOOO lol ) 2 floral crowns, rose petals for sides of ailse, petals for baskets, petals to go around candles on about 7 tables, 15 centerpieces,& 14 hand tied bouquets to go on every other end of the ailse 

I think my florist is AWESOME & super sweet! And when I met her I told her I had a budget and I wanted to stay around $1,000. And she worked with me! I’m getting premium flowers for a great price. The 15 centerpieces aren’t huge- I didn’t want anything tall or to big- they’re low vases – I told her I like low & full!! I wanted people to be able to see across the table but the centerpieces to still have an impact
