Hiya, how much is reasonable to pay for flowers. Obviously it depends what you're having.. but.. 1 bride, 3 bridesmaid, 1 MOTB, 1 Groom, 6 Buttonholes, 1 Long and Low for the top table, Gypsophillia to fill gin bottles for the other 7 tables... looking at Calla Lillies and White Roses..
Hi it varies sorry good luck :)
Yes and roses are expensive. Go get some quotes from at least 3 companies
I'm having similar to you but all fake and it's £600 x
Sounds expensive hope you get sorted.
I thought I'd found s bargain for bride, 6 buttonholes mob and mog for £165. But my theme is much different to yours.
I'm having real flowers 1 brides 2 bridesmaids 1 groom button holes 4 button holes and 10 centre pieces and it's costing me £120 including delivery
Try website www.triangle.co.uk ...... I used them last year for my girlfriend's wedding & will be using them again for my wedding as they are very helpful .....
Warm wishes , Sarah x
I had artificial for our bouquets as they were so much cheaper and looked amazing... and real on the tables and button holes! I'm glad I didn't have a real bouquet as my hayfever was awful near the table displays!
I had a quote for £750 with callas and roses. do try look at artificial flowers.. I used groovy ruby they are fantastic and I saved £500 and all I need now is some perfume to spray over them. order a sample from her she was great x
I got mine fake. A bride, bridesmaid, flower girl wand, 4 buttonholes and a top table arrangement for £179. They are lovely too.
I only paid £260 for mine for calla lillies and roses but then i have gone for fake flowers instead of real ones due to my colour scheme. I got extra large teardrop, small teardrop, 2 small bouquets, pin on corsage, 3 wands and 5 double button holes.
I'm having fake flowers 1 bride 4 bridesmaids 1 grooms buttonhole 1 best man BH 3 usher BH 2 father's BH and 3 corsages for MoB MoG and NoB for £260.
Quote for mine similar to what you're having is around £300 from a small independent florist x
We went with a small local boutique, and are being charged £260 for 1 large and 3 small bouquets of roses and 13 button holes, plus a dozen long stems for our center pieces.
We are having Bride 2 bridesmaid 1 flower Girl 7 button holes for men 3 corsages 2 pedestals and ivy round poles in church 19 tables with jars of roses and gyp a table runner made of flowers for top table all that came to £750 including delivery and set up she is doing all our candles and flowers for 19 tables good luck xx they are all real
I got bride, 3 bridesmaid, mother of groom, mother of bride, 60 buttonholes all artificial for 80 from Flowersboutique1234 she has pink roses on her Facebook profile. Linda Scholey I have remembered the profile right haven't i?
Unfortunately real Flowers have gone up in price a lot because they are imported and dear old Brexit has had an effect. I did all my own last year and I'll admit there were shed loads 6 flower rings for the tables.2 pedestal displays one for the main table. 10 pew ends. 50 buttonholes. 5 bridal party buttonholes. 3 bridesmaids and mine and it cost me £750 wholesale! Xxx
Check out the Marks and Spencer's wedding flower packages, lovely colours and not too expensive :) and easy to collect
I paif about 80 for artificial flowers that was for teardrop for bride 3 bridemaids 1 double buttonhole and 3 buttonholes
Try Bouquets on a budget xx
I've got white roses and gyp - lots of gyp in the church to keep costs down and I've made my own rose balls for the reception table centre pieces with foam roses from amazon for everything including professional local florist button holes centre pieces my bouquet and bridesmaids I'd say £300 which is very good for cheshire xxx
Try here. My Brides 4 bridesmaid, flower girl wand. Top table arrangement. 1 double buttonhole and 5 single and a pin on corsage was £150 x
I paid £135 for bridal bouquet 2 bridesmaid bouquets 5 flower girl bouquets top table centre piece, 6 buttonholes and one corsage and they are so beautiful il keep them forever! Can recommend my lady if anyone would like too.. these were gold and white roses with diamontes all over x
I discovered a company called country baskets a week before my wedding. They're a cash and carry that's open to the public which specialise in things for florists and have lots of fake flowers and pre-made bouquets. They also have lots of other wedding accessories there - including gifts for the wedding party and decorations. I got my flower girl baskets from them - there was a whole aisle to choose from! They've got several stores around the country
I found out that everyone was quoting me a price based on what kind of flowers I wanted and try to change what I asked for because of the expensive but the florist I found who does them home charged me per item e.g. Bottom hole was like £9 each and mine bridesmaids are £25 each and then she just put on a 20% vat on top for purchasing the flowers which everyone had to do. All in all it was cheapest out of all quotes all really flowers and the best Iv ever seen.
To be honest I found her my googled maps as she was kinda close to be (sheffield area) then I found her Facebook page
I do not overcharge my customers my prices are reasonable for fresh, silk & foam, if you would like a quote please inbox me I will help...
You looking at 250-260 at least for you bridal party
Then 60-80 for your top table. Then just for the spray on your tables I would say 10-15 each hand full
These are the flowers we had. So stargazer lillies, gerbera's, roses....we had 3 bridesmaids, 1 Bridal, 1 mob and 1 gran, 6 tables, 1 long and low and 7 buttonholes and it was £590 xx
Be careful with gyp, they can be quite strong smelling. We changed ours as our florist normally hides air freshener in her bouquets due to the smell
You're looking at £500 plus! I ended up buying silk and foam flowers, making everything myself and paid £200 xx
Marks and spencer do ranges for about £150 with brides/bridesmaids/button holes etc
As you said, it really depends where your going, what you're having, and the ratio of cheaper "filler" flowers to roses/lilies.
We have got 1 large bride boquet, 5 bridesmaids, 1 Groom buttonhole, 2 dad buttonholes, 5 groomsman buttonholes, long and low table plus a tree root filled with David austen roses, 9 tables with gyps and eucalyptus "trees", a gyps and eucalypyus garland for the beam and a crate of roses etc for just under £1000. But then again I always wanted tons of flowers at my wedding and I love David austen roses which are expensive!
Definitely try and find a local business (much more reasonable from what I found) rather than a branded name florist or ones that do purely weddings
We paid £280 for my waterfall bouquet, a small one to throw, 2 corsages, 5 buttonholes, 3 gypso bouquets for bridesmaids,basket and petals for flower girl and a centrepiece. We had cala lilies, roses... x
I bought brides bouquet, 4 bridesmaids bouquets, 5 buttonholes and 3 corsages for £450. I have had yellow and white calla lillies and roses.
I had the same problem the cost was coming into the 100's so I eventually went with real touch cala lilies I have to say they look amazing and so real, my bouquet is done and 1 of my bridesmaids flowers are done I'm just waiting on delivery of the rest, the button holes of done a cluster of mini calla lillies, all off amazon and they have cost me around 20 hope you find what yr looking for x
My packages are half the price and are of top quality
