No, but the vases were only $50 for all of them and the books were free off Craigslist (no one wants encyclopedias anymore). Oh and the candles and votive holders were $65. So total is around $1,730 for the full decoration budget.

We didn’t have a budget for them because a family friend  (ex florist) was going to gift to them to us but bailed a few months before the wedding. We ended up going with a florist and spent around $1,700. This included 1 Bridal bouquet, 3 BM’s bouquets, 7 boutineers, flower girl flowers and basket and 14 Centerpieces. I love how the turned out!

heartillynne :  Yes and that was in Canadian dollars too. Our florist also let us rent the voitves and latners from her which were about another.Once we factored in Tax + cost of votives and lanterns etc we were over $5,000. 

Her prices are on the mid-high end here in our city, but she does excellent work and we trusted her vision.

I also love peonies, garden roses, ranunculas – all the super romantic (and expensive ;)) flowers! We just had our winter wedding and I was in love with our garlands, bouquets, etc.

I am in San Francisco so I also knew our costs would be on the high side. My total budget was $3500 and I went slightly over. That included the flowers, tax, installation/break down (super important too)! I don’t have all my photos back yet but included a couple that I do have. 🙂


– Bridal bouquet (including vintage silks and ribbons)
– Maid/Matron of Honor bouquet
– 2 Mom corsages
– 4 Bouttonieres for the groom, best man, dads
– 3 flower girl crowns and petals

– Wreath for entry
– Welcome/guest book table blooms and accents
– Large 12′ ceremony mantel display (above a fireplace)
– Accent blooms for lanterns
– Sweetheart table arrangement
– Long, draped garlands with blooms for 8 tables
– Cake greenery/blooms
– Floating candles and jars

I hope this helps!

Mine is $1,000 for a 20-person wedding and no bridal party! Disclaimer: I have a well-known floral designer who is doing a chandelier garland amongst a few other things.
