I'm curious as to how much florists cost on average (North of England). It's one of the few outstanding suppliers we need to book but those I have obtained quotes from are way over our budget and considering we do not have a large wedding party, we're not sure if that's standard. If you have any tips on how to keep the cost down (circa £5-600) that would also be appreciated.
Infinite Blossom Creations i make these and would be happy to give you a quote should you be interested
There are a lot of artificial flowers that look just as good as real one and they will last longer x
I got mine from silk floral art. She's based in York and does artificial ones, they look amazing and she's really good at listening to what you want and your budget
I am a florist from the North East. The cost of flowers depends on the time of year and what you are wanting. Most good florists can work within a brides budget and should make suggestions on how to best use the budget for maximum impact x
I had a beautiful bouquet from Angel Paper Flower Creations
I would highly recommend!
We have got artificial ones saved about £100 on them and they are beautiful and can keep them after x
I am having dried flower bouquets on my wedding day! There is lots of lovely ones on Etsy x
I'm doing my own. Buying flowers from a local florist as well as a super market and then putting them together with help from family. This has allowed me to keep the costs down xx
I’ve bought artificial they’re beautiful x
Depends what you want (flower type, size of bouquet and quantity etc). I had a medium sized bouquet, 5 gents buttonholes, 2 corsages and 3 bridesmaid bouquets... £210. That was in the Lake District - Floral Boutique Cockermouth
It depends on what you want creating and what flowers there are. 6 years ago I paid £325 for brides bouquet, 4 bridesmaids posies, 2 flower girl little bunches, page boy teeny buttonhole, 6 x mens buttonhole, 2 corsages aaaand 2 decorations for church. All in season flowers (May).
I think it would all depend on the type of flowers you go for. If you would like to have your flowers preserved to create a timeless keepsake after spending all that money om your flowers I would love to help Salsforeverflowers.com

Our florist worked up flowers to our budget, if you tell them how much you want to spend they can tailor a quote to you. I had no idea about flowers so just said my budget and the rough look and colours I wanted and they mocked me up some choices, we went with blue and white hydrangeas, peonies and other large flowers as it cut the cost down (less flowers per bouquet of they are big and I think they were in season). The men had thistle buttonholes because it went with the colours. We had I think 5 relatively cheap hydrangea bouquets as table centerpieces but didn't have flowers as decor other than that, one cost saving tip is that I put my bouquet and my bridesmaids bouquets on the top table and cake table after the photos (you won't want to carry them all day and they will just get left somewhere anyway) so they doubled up as some decor as well.
Try your venues reccommended florist. We got married in 2017. Had a long bouquet trail, 2 bridesmaid, 7 buttonholes, large top table and 6-8 tables. It was £800 but the equivalent for same stuff was £1200 in other suppliers and ours did way more than what you’d get for what we paid. It was totally breathtaking.
I paid £560 in north west. Bridal bouquet, 2 bridesmaids, 3 flower girl wands, groom & best man buttons holes, 4 normal button holes and 2 mum corsage. Also had top table and 10 centrepieces. Hope that helps!! I got married in May and specified which flowers I wanted.
We did our own! Hobbycraft flowers were fairly cheap and the money we saved there was spent on my bouquet but even then they were fake flowers and did t cost more than £90.
I have beautiful paper flowers from Paper Bouquets UK xxx
I’m down south but our flowers were about £450 that’s for my bouquet, 4 bridesmaids, 4 buttonholes and a few for table centres. My advice would be limit the flowers on table centres as that can get very expensive.
It depends on the type of flowers /greenery etc. And whether they're in season or not. If you have a budget then speak to a florist and they'll be able to work something out for you
I’m north east and Button Rose Floral Design did my flowers. She was the most reasonably priced in the area by far, I got loads of quotes and her flowers were more unique, beautiful and well presented than any of the comparable I saw, Holly really worked with us to make the day special and everything done in the easiest possible way. I recommend her to everyone xx
Im not having flowers at all it's cheaper. My bouquet and bridesmaids ones are made of buttons. Plus it will last as memento forever and won't die like flowers will.
Im from North East and Sprig and Thistle did my flowers. Jess was great. She did my bouquets, button holes and the venue decorations too.
Artificial are the way to go, a lot cheaper (especially if you can make them yourself) and you can keep them or give them as gifts afterwards. X
Consider fake flowers. I have severe hayfever and refused to be taking antihistamines throughout my da yto have flowers so I got silk flowers. They cost a quarter of what real ones cost and they looked amazing.
Ours was less than that but I didn't have bridesmaids. I had my bouquet, 2 large displays in the church we could move into the reception and about 15 button holes for under £200
We did foam flowers 💐 they were stunning and only costed around 100-150 for brides 4 bridesmaids and 6 buttonholes
If you decide to go for something artificial I can highly recommend GroovyRuby - Artificial Wedding Flowers
Artificial roses to last a lifetime Jane's Vintage Flowers
I’m North West (Liverpool) and my florist was amazing! For my bouquet, a table piece, about 16 individual sunflowers for table decs, my 4 bridesmaids Flowers wrapped in twine, 3 mums corsage, 2 dads, the groom and 4 groomsmen it came to about £200ish. I was made up! 💐
The lovely lady doing my flowers works from home so has no overheads, for one bride, 5 bridesmaids, 6 button holes, 2 corsages and flowers for the cake it is only £231 😊
I got artificial flowers so that I could keep my bouquet after the wedding and the price was also a lot cheaper than having real ones and they are absolutely beautiful. Am so glad we went for them now especially after having to postpone our wedding due to covid x
I've bought some artificial flowers and made my own bouquet, bridesmaid bouquets and now finishing off my buttonhole ones for around £70 from The Range
Pocket & Posy fabulous personal service, working with what you want and to your budget. Their page sets out transparent pricing. Can highly recommend for beautiful flowers.

Try Blush and bloom ❤️
Artificial flowers are much cheaper, look just as pretty and you can keep them 🙂
I made sure to get seasonal flowers for our wedding and we only used a florist for the bouquets and button holes, all the flowers in the church were done by family and friends and we just bulk bought flowers from markets 😊
We used teapots from second hand shops that we gave to our florist. Kept costs down and looked great
