It really depends on the type of flowers. Roses and carnations tend to be less expensive (in general) than orchids, lilies, etc. Also be sure to ask the florist what’s in season, because that will really impact cost, too.

For a similar set up, we got quotes from $1500 to $4500 to $10500. Make sure you research cheaper flowers and bring in pictures of what you want – surprisingly, sometimes the “simple” looking arrangements with expensive flowers cost more! Be clear about your budget and look into options like Sam’s Club, fiftyflowers.com, etc.

One thing that killed our initial budget was ceremony flowers – don’t know if you need those or not.

Here’s what we are paying.  The bouquets will be smaller but flowers were not a priority for me so I was willing to sacrafice.  This is with all roses as well…

Bridal Bouquet: $65

Bridesmaids: $35

Boutonierres: $6

Mother’s small bouquets: $10

Ceremony altar decor: $60 each

Centerpieces: $25

I think that’s very doable. We got:

My bouquet, 2 bridesmaids bouquets, 5 bouts (groom, groomsmen, and fathers), 4 coursages (moms and grandma’s), and petals for the flower girl for $300. We bought some potted plants for decoration during the ceremony for $20. And I got 15 centerpieces for $23 each (I diy’ed them) so that was $345.

I think that’s totally do-able and really plenty if you don’t have floral intensive centerpieces.  Do you want a big arch piece or pedestal ceremony arrangements? Those can be pricey, but without 10 floral centerpieces you should still be able to get one, pew flowers if you want them, and the personal flowers with a couple of nice arrangements for the reception space (and ceremony flowers can also be repurposed) for that price!
