I have to admit, flowers just aren't my thing!!!
I love them but know nothing about them, so am feeling a little lost.
I don't know what is a reasonable price for flowers, so was hoping some of you wouldn't mind sharing what you purchased for your big day, and what it cost you.
At the moment, I was quoted $740 for
1x Teardrop bridal
4x Posy bridesmaid
I don't know what a good price is, as I've received quotes $400-1000 for the same items!!!
Can anyone help????????

I received quotes from $600 to $1250 for the smae thing (just over 4 years ago)
I ended up going with a quote for $650.
1x Bridal teardrop bouquet all pink roses
3 x BM Bouquets all pink roses
I think 7 or 9 boutonierres (pink roses)
And two massive dispays for the church. And would you believe, not a single photo of them
But they were aobut a metre high, pink roses in keeping with the theme and lots of foliage.
The $650 included delivery to where I was getting ready and to the church.
Your quote sounds reasonable, considering my wedding was over 4 years ago.

I ended up doing some more research and met with another few florists. I also changed my flowers, so needed to get quotes redone. I ended up booking my florist and for $681 I'm getting

4x BM bouquets (posy style)
2x wrist corsages
1 bag of rose petals
11 stems of Singapore orchids for centrepieces (may change these to roses?)
Delivery to 2 separate locations
Flowers are now Peony Rose flowers and buds, some standard Roses, Lisianthus, bud-tipped Freesias and Singapore Orchids.

I paid $500 for 3 BM bouquets & 1 brides bouquet
My florist was too exy for the rest so mum sourced $15 corsages and $10 buttonholes from her local shopping centre florist. No body even noticed they were from different florists and my dad picked them up on the morning of the wedding on his way to my house.
Sometimes it pays to shop around a bit

from recollection, button holes were the cheapest for us at under $15 each..
Corsages were next most expensive at circa $35-$45 depending on the flowers used.
My MOH had phal orchids and a relatively detailed bouquet which I think was circa $150 and I think my tear drop of phal orchids was about $250
So think it probably varies massively depending on the type of flowers being used, complexity of making the bouquets etc.
