I haven’t done any research what so ever on how much my floral will cost. We budgeted $2500, just because I thought that would be a good number. I have not contacted any florists yet. I was wondering if any bees could help me with an estimate before I contacted floral companys so I can have an idea. What do you think it would cost for the floral on this centerpiece? I’m going to try to re-create this centerpiece and I will be buying the vases and crystals myself. Just interested in the floral costs only. Thanks!!

i’m not sure about the cost of flowers because i know nothing about flowers myself. but what about doing fake flowers instead to save money ?

I’m no exspert but those look like orchids so most likely they are going to be fairly exspensive. Floral cost is so dependant on geography/season ect that it is going to be really hard to estimate until you talk to local florists.

Its sort of hard to say because I can’t see the photo very well. It also massively depends on what region you’re getting married and the time of year. But orchids can easily run between 6-8 dollars/stem. If the rest are roses, I think that’s probably about 2.5 dozen (based on the fact there are 7 roses as half of the bottom line). So I think you’re looking at easily around $80 + in the midwest.

Orchids are expensive & it really depends on how many you order. You may get a discount through your florist if you need alot of them.

I might choose a different flower to cut down on the cost. I would say this arrangement would easily run over $150 for florals alone. If you want to do something like this I would suggest maybe only having this arrangement on a few tables and then maybe doing candles and mirrors on other tables.
Florists can usually work these kinds of arrangements even if you are on a budget. What city are you in? I live in Dallas and have found that vendors are much more expensive within the city limits. My florals are about $3400 (including rentals, I dont own any vases, etc). My sister was married in a small town 30 miles south of Houston and her florals were only $2000.

Most elevated designs cost over $100 each. Orchids are pretty expense, I’m sure it will be closer to the $200 mark. But also that might be prices for DC area which is one of the most expensive area for weddings.

@SaraP2012: Thank you!! I’ll def check them out!
Thank you everyone else for all your help as well! I think I will do half (maybe less) tables with the elevated centerpieces, and the rest I plan on buying candelbras instead of floral! Hopefully that’ll save on costs and I’ll sell the candelbras afterwards.
