Hi there ladies!
I'm looking for what a reasonable flower budget is in New England (getting married in Central Mass next September) - I realize of course that region plays a huge part in the budget.
I will need the following:
- 1 bridal bouquet
- 6 bridesmaids bouquets
- 7 boutonnieres (5 GM, 2 fathers. no living grandfathers)
- 3 corsages (2 moms, 1 living grandmother)
If the budget allows, some small and simple mason jar centerpieces (the venue is a beautiful barn, it doesn't need much and I don't have the budget for large extravagant centerpieces).
The colors are burgundy, blush, creams, and a LOT of greenery.
I am not at all picky about flower type except that I would like some silver dollar eucalyptus. I also love roses. Whatever is in season in my colors that looks nice together I'm happy with.
I received a quote from the venue's main florist (he does NOT have a shop so I think the lack of that type of overhead allows for good prices) for all of the above, a couple of ceremony pieces that would later be used in the reception barn (I was originally going to get a couple large burgundy mums), and some pops of color (so a few small arrangements across the tables - they are very long farmhouse tables) for $800. I believe that this is a good deal but want to check in and see if there's places in central mass to look at, and what a good price is for flowers.
