Flowers - Costs

Does anyone mind showing me a pic of their bouquet and how much it cost?

I have been quoted 120??????? for bridal bouguet and 50??????? each for bridesmaids.

I think that is a bit over the top personally.


  • I havent got married yet but my quote is £85 for my bouquet thats for Roses and Peonies with diamonds in the heads.

    My Bridesmaids are £45 smaller version of mine without diamonds.

    I might have to cut the prices down.....

    What type of flowers are you having? x
  • I have no idea what type of flowers all the different suggestions they have made seem to be the same!
  • Hummm.... Local and in season makes the flowers cheaper. If you have more 'green' that also brings the cost down.

    If you don't want to spend as much give them a price and see what they can do. Most florists will try and work to your budget.

    Not sure that helps?!?

    Good luck x
  • Thanks! I will see what they can offer me. I am getting married in Italy so it is difficult to work out things and see what they do. I guess i am going to be learning a lot about flowers over the next few months. x

    This is my bouquet which was £70 and includes cymbidium orchids, calla lillies & roses.

  • My sister got married 5 years ago and her bouquet was £120 then! It was a very large tear-drop display of white and cream roses and possibly white cala lillies.

    The cost depends on the size and number of flowers, the type of flowers and whether they are in season or not. Tulips are cheap but not in September. image Orchids and lillies are more expensive flowers but they can create and impact with less.

    I like those cymbidium orchids in the bouquet. I'm thinking of having my centre pieces as a tall cylindrical vase with a length of cymbidium orchids submurged with a floating candle on top.

  • We haven't got married yet but we are paying £50 for bridesmaids x 2 and my bouquet as well as flowers for our marquee and £45 for buttonholes and corsages, the bouquet flowers are from a wholesaler and the buttonholes from our local florist.....however I was quoted initially £80 for bridal bouquet and £50 for bridesmaids with venue flowers coming in at £400 hence why I decided to get my flowers from a wholesaler. xx
