How much will my flowers and decorations cost?

This is a very important question. 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

What is the process for determining the cost of my wedding flowers?

The first step is filling out our Wedding Inquiry Form. This gives us a lot of information about your wedding details and about your vision for your day. Then we will set up an initial consultation with you. Before our consultation, we’ll use Pinterest to create a ‘vision board’ for you. At the consultation, we ask for a lot of specifics about what you have in mind and you may want to show us some pictures of looks you like. It is helpful if you have a general idea of your budget, that way we won’t show you things that are not affordable or have you disappointed that your floral decor doesn’t live up to your dreams.

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 ideas about your dream wedding and we’ll help you create an unforgettable event.
