Flowers for the wedding... estimating, guessing?

I am dying on the vine (no pun intended), waiting for floral/decor bids to come back (from 2 vendors).  So, in the meantime, I have contacted another vendor and before we get to the part where I'm asked for my budget (which I am re-thinking), I'd like for your input on high - low ranges here in the DC market for the following:

1 bridal bouquet, somewhat like this:



3 bouts:




1 canopy:




draping to fully cover this entrance (10' x 8') -- way up there at the front:




plus flowers for the cake table.

Your input is appreciated.  Thank you, ladies!

    we just got a quote the other day that was actually pretty competitive. it was just when we started calculating the number of centerpieces that we would need is were it got dicey. i think my WP is negotiating with them though.

    my guess:

    1 bridal bouquet - $100
    3 bouts - $15 each
    canopy - $500
    draping - i would assume $300 to $500
    flowers for cake table - i would assume $50

    Sweet!  That is about what I thought.  If you don't mind would you please share the name of your wedding planner and/or your florist?  I don't yet have a planner and, as I mentioned in the original post, I'm falling asleep waiting for these quotes to come in.  Zzzzzzzz ....

    I have plenty of time -- the wedding isn't until July.  But, since it's on July 3rd, I feel I should lock in the commitment/pricing sooner rather than later.

    Thanks so much!
