Somewhere around $1700 I think.  7 bouquets, 8 bouts, 4 corsages, 2 table arrangements, and 2 candelabra clips.  I did non-floral centerpieces though.

Mine was $2225, which includes bridal bouquet, 4 bridesmaids bouquets, 16 centrepieces (large and tightly packed arrangements), 21 vases, petals for isle, other reception floral decor, 10 boutoniers, 6 corsages (for moms), flower girl basket and petals for her basket.

Oh – and it also included a toss bouquet and a sample of the centrepieces and bridal bouquet.

That includes some out of season flowers (ranunculous), calla lilies, etc.

I absolutely love my florist – and if her arrangements are as nice as my sample bouquets, I will be shouting her name from the rooftops! lol

Ours was about $725, I think.  That was for bridal bouquet, poseys for 3 moms, 2 large arrangements, and 14 small centerpieces. No other decor, and no wedding party. And aside from my bouquet, which was white sweet peas, we told the florist to use whatever he liked that was local and in-season.  It looked great.

Ours is supposed to be $800 plus tax…so less than $900. (not including all the candles for the tables as well)

We’re having 3 Bm bouquets, my bouquet, 8 bouts, 3 corsages, 30 vases of flowers for reception centerpieces.

These are our bouquets and centerpieces.

5K for 15 centerpieces, 6 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, my bouquet, 2 little bouquets for MOB and MOG,  tussy mussy for the Flower Girl, cocktail hour decor (we had 2 big martini glass decorations made out of flowers and crystals and rose petals on the tables), and decor for the bar area of our venue (again tea lights, crystals, and rose petals), plus tax, and $600 for set up and turn around-my ceremony and reception were in the same room so they had to reset everything when we went down for cocktail hour. We did get a 15% discount for paying in cash which was great!

We a a teeny tiny budget for flowers, because we splurged in other areas. We need to keep it around $600

We are still figuring it all out…however we are not having a lot of flowers…

Centerpieces: Half are branches in tall vases with tea lights and the other half are tall lanterns with candles: total cost: $250

We will have three mason jars with flowers inside on each table: $400

Bouquet: $150 

Girls are carrying candle lanterns adorned with vines $50 for all four. 

4 Corsages: $80

Parents flowers $100

Ceremony Decor flowers $100 

We are not having flowers anywhere else…but mason jars with flowers or candles everywhere!!! that cost about $100 for 40 jars and candles or flowers…

 

$1,230 total for decor…I know you wanted flowers, but we just don’t have a ton.

For now it looks like it will be around 4-5 grand.  We are having a big wedding though – 9 people are standing up (I’m still missing two) he has a huge family and way too many friends in reality he could have 20 people stand up.

The bridesmaids boquets will be around 45 bucks, mine $250(pricey but I love it), 400 guests at the reception which means we need 40 centerpieces!! we are doing a mix 1/2 vases with orchids and the other half the tall flower centerpieces.. flowers for the church.. etc etc.. the tax itself is around 500 dollars.. I’m hoping we can get it closer to 4k though 🙁
