  • Wedding: October 2015

I am paying around $2200 for the following: chuppah rental, 2 ceremony displays, 10-15 low centerpieces, my bouquet, 3 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, 3-4 boutinieres, and 2 wristlets for our mothers, and an aisle runner.  We are staying in season and easily sourced flowers to keep our costs down.  Our centerpieces are going to be very simple.  Here is what we will be doing:

 

For our centerpieces, are going to have a hot pink Gebera Daisy in a bowl of water with various crystals at the bottom.  It will be placed on a mirror with votives surrounding it.

The bridesmaid bouquets consist of mini hydrangeas, light pink roses, and lavender.  This is a mockup of what it will look like.

My bouquet will be built out more and have white roses, mini hydrangeas, and lavender.

Mine is $1500.  I cut down my cost by quite a bit by switching to seasonal flowers like orchids rather than roses.

lovechocolate:  May I ask who you used in Dallas? 🙂

 

I have no idea what to expect in regards to floral costs – my priorities are my bouquet, my 6 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, and centerpieces for around 18 tables. Hoping to spend around 2k!

foz:  where are you getting married? We are in Oz and the price of almost everything is much more than what US Bees mention on here. 

Ive been told around $3K for a cascading bouquet, Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, button holes and some beautiful centrpieces for the reception. Once we actually meet with our preferred florist and explain what we want (minimal and no ceremony florals) it will be lower.

Had ballroom and promenade for 10kish for just the flowers. Ballroom fits 120people, had 98 guests. About 7k was used for the ballroom. Considering the layout of the room it was still not enough and looked bare imo :/ my florist is very good, just was my miscommunication. I regret on not doing more honestly. It wasn’t enough. I really wanted the room to be flourishing.

The price also differs on the types of flowers you have so keep that in mind.

=Picture poofed=

this is my wedding with the head table and one of the guest tables in the ballroom. Similar floral arrangement was used all around the remaining guest tables, and few more standalones by the walls.

Used roses, peonies, and 3 other flowers I don’t know the name of.

my bouquet was $250 and was roses and peonies.

Picture poofing soon.
