Poll: How much are you spending on flowers?

I have not a clue how much to budget for the florist!

For perspective, could you include number of guests and if your centerpieces are primarily floral or not?

Thank you all in advance!

Re: Poll: How much are you spending on flowers?

  • I'm not techinically going with a florist.  I plan on ordering 100 white roses from Costco or Sam's Club for about $80 bucks and then try and find those dyed rainbow roses from either somewhere.  Overall I am budgetting for less than $300 for 5-6 bridesmaid bouquets, 10 centerpieces of about 3 flowers (and 1 rainbow) each, and 10 centerpieces with Hobby Lobby real touch roses submerged in water.  This includes the cost of vases and fillers.

  • I ended up spending about $300 only bc I went with real touch flowers for the orchids I wanted bc if I would have done real orchids my flower bill would have been about $1800!

  • I budgeted around $500 but will be under that because I chose to go with HyVee Floral, who is also doing my cake, and since I booked both of them there they gave me 10 percent off the total bill.
  • I'm using fake flowers from Hobby Lobby, and I'm doing the bouquets and boutonniers myself.  I'm probably not spending any more than $100.  But we only have one attendant each, so if I had any more than that I'd probably pay someone to do them :)
  • We have a florist to do just the cermony flowers. For my bouquet, 3 bridesmaids, a toss bouquet, 12 boutineers and 7 corsages we are paying about $650. We got a quote from hy-vee for $1000 so we decided to go with our florist instead.

  • We're spending a lot more. Having all bouquets and things made, but centerpieces and my little semi-alter display will have them as well. I want hydrangea, which isn't cheap. I've compared all the pricing on them from different sites to order bulk flowers from and my dad can do them. Total costs will be around $800 bucks just for the bulk and $400 for the made items through a florist. 
  • We bought fake flowers for the centerpieces at Dollar Tree. It cost about $50 (assuming about 13-15 tables). We will likely do the same for the bouqets at an estimated $15. Wal-Mart also has some nice fake flower bouqets for about $4 a piece.
