$85 as part of a package and I’m having a HUGE bouquet. Could you use garden roses instead of peonies to get the price down? I would get quotes from other florists. The highest quote I got was for $150.

Mine is modelled off of Ivanka Trump’s and it is 150 euros- it has stephanotis, gardenias and roses.

800 for a bouquet is outrageous!

@JustMarried51912: WOW! That is a beautiful bouquet. I love the colors and the feathers…but I gotta say that I think that $325 is a HUGE amount of money for flowers to carry around for half a day. I totally understand falling in love with something and really really wanting it but that is a car payment or half a months rent for me and I could not bring myself to spend that much for flowers. You should see if there is anyone you know who knows how to make bouquets and ask them to make it. Wiring flowers and grouping them to make this really is not difficult. In fact I bet with practice you could even make this with flowers you order from a florist.

 (I went to floral school and worked for a florist for 2 years and I gotta say…anytime you mention “wedding” their eyes turn to dollar bills)

I’m paying $175 for mine, including a toss bouquet.  Here’s what I’m getting:

A classic hand-tied bouquet in shades of purple and blue created using flowers such as purple lisianthus, purple calla lilies, purple Mokara orchids, blue delphinium, a few white roses and white dendrobium orchids, with pittspori greenery,  Jewels peeking from the flowers, stems wrapped with coordinating silk ribbon attached with a vintage style rhinestone brooch

Holy crap, I thought $150 was rediculous for my bouquet.  The highest quote I got was $200 based on this picture:

I ended up paying $80 for mine from Whole Foods.  They do florals at cost of just the flowers with no mark up for labor like a florist would include.

If you took floral deisgn, and still are comfortable with the price and want to spend it, go for it!  Better to just take the plunge and be sure you are getting what you want than to chance not having it exactly how you want and regret it.  $150 – $175 vs $325 is only $150 or so difference.  At the end of a wedding recipt, that’s a drop in the bucket.

Mine was $185 for peonies (about 12 of them). If you love it and you’re ok with the price, go for it! It’s beautiful.

Mine was 150, I think. I would never spend more than that, as I carried it down the aisle, back up the aisle, then handed it off and never saw it again until after the wedding. 

I had the handle wrapped with a handkerchief my grandmother gave to me, that she bought when I was a little girl to be my “something blue” someday (the giant RHR is my other grandmothers, and my other something blue).

I used silks from afloral.com (DIY)… with shipping and ribbon, I paid less than $40. 

But Darling Husband and I are CHEAP! 

Good luck!

I went for the DIY option too 😀

For my bouquet and 7 bridesmaids bouquets it cost me around £65 altogether (as in flowers, ribbon, buttons, floral wire).  My bridesmaids have amaryllis flowers and my bouquet is a mixture of lily of the valley (main component), white lavender, baby’s breath and there are a few pieces of flowering grass in there too.. all of which are artificial 🙂

All of your bouquets look stunning by the way 😀
