We encourage couples to create a “budget” for their wedding, itemizing individual cost estimates and percentages.  And one of the most asked questions I receive is, “How much should I budget for my bouquets and other floral requirements?”   After all, this is something most of us do only once in a lifetime. 

One of the most important ingredients that can make the wedding special is the decoration, and weddings are incomplete without blooms to contribute to the beauty of the décor.  Here are some estimates of the “average” cost in our area of wedding flowers.   Keep in mind that the average cost depends upon the availability of flowers and the total number of flowers needed for the bouquet fill.

 

We interviewed a number of local wedding floral vendors here to get these averages for you:

Bridal Bouquet              $80-$300.00                  $ 175.00
