How much will my flowers and decorations cost?

This is a very important question that all brides will ask. We would like to be able to tell you how much your flowers will cost but the fact is, there are just too many variables that affect the cost.

What kind of things affect the cost of the flowers?WP_20140810_009

  • The type of flowers requested
  • The season of the year
  • The number of different kinds of flowers used in a bouquet or arrangement
  • The number of bridesmaids or the number of tables
  • The size of the centerpieces
  • The type of container desired for centerpieces
  • How many extras like aisle decor, arbors or arches, rose petal aisle covering, and many more

Can the Garden by the Gate help me with my flower budget?

Absolutely! In fact, we take special pride in helping our brides have a beautiful, elegant, wedding within their desired budget. We have many, many, ways to help you maximize your investment. We will guide you in where you will want to spend a little more, and what kinds of things can be excluded with little difference in the overall effect.

But really, I have no idea what flowers cost!

Here's a little calculation you can do to get an idea of what you might spend. But remember all the variables mentioned above! It is often suggested that you allow 10% of your overall wedding budget for flowers. If you're not sure what your overall wedding budget will be, you can start by multiplying the expected number of guests by $150. If your wedding is very elaborate or at an upscale venue, that number should be increased. Then use 10% of that number for your estimated floral budget. Of course there are many variables such as type of flowers, lushness of each piece, etc.

So bring us your budget and your pictures of your dream wedding and we'll help you create an unforgettable event.
