    I learned to make them in florist school and they are NOT EASY to do well... Be real sure your florist is well trained and capable if you opt for this... a well done one is amazing... a bad one is plain tacky.    
    The petals are wired and taped and sometimes glued into place so lots of handling and labor...  overworking the delicate petals can be a problem... you just plain need a PRO... 
    With that I would say $200 up o get that skill level... 
    Certainly not something to shop price too much... 
    In spite of Martha Stewarts easy instructions be careful... glued ones can fall apart and using the wrong glues can cause strings of glue..and glued ones are very flat rather than rounded..... la de da...

    That is a gorgeous photo and love the furled ti leaves on the back...great finish... good luck and hope this helps,,,, not trying to burst a bubble... just lending a bit of experience...  

    take care and happy new year..

    When I showed my florist the picture of what i wanted, she let loose with a string of curse words directed at Martha Stewart before explaining why this particular bouquet would be risky.  We  then talked for about a half hour and she came up with flowers that gave me the same feel of what I was going for and that cost about 1/4 of what I wanted originally.

    we have done quite a few of these. Midgemoto is right when she says make sure you get someone who has experience to make them.   Size=$  the one you show here I would not touch for under $250.
