    Hi KMO

    So far i've been quoted 738 for:

    Brides bouquets
    Bridesmaid bouquets (x4)
    Button Hole Flowers (x5)
    Ladies Corsages (x2)
    Chapel Flowers
    Flowers for Mothers
    10 center piece.

    The company I got the quote from is supplying my chair covers and bows as apart of the hotel weeding offer so I though it would be easier to go with them as they would be there on the day anyhow but now i'm not sure. I have still to get other quotes to compair this to but I haven't had the time xx

    We are 550ish for:
    My bouquet
    3 x BMs bouquets
    7 x button holes
    Top table
    7 x centrepieces

    If we're getting flowers for church through the florist it'll also be an extra 150

    My centrepieces are included in our package but for everything else:

    My bouquet
    1 bridesmaid bouquet
    1 flowergirl bouquet
    5 buttonholes
    2 wrist corsages
    5 boxed thankyou bouquets (mums and grans)

    Only 288! Thought it would be more as using stephanotis and its very expensive but was pleasantly surprised

    Our venue package includes our centrepieces and top table arrangement (doubling as ceremony table arrangement)

    So for everything else I wanted is about 500ish

    My bouquet
    Bm bouquet
    Fg bouquet
    9 button holes
    3 corsages
    Flowers to fill 8 birdcages
    Stand with flowers to add to ceremony room

    Pretty good I would say...

    my bouquet alone is 200 hahaha, we are going with this florist as my mum loves her work! Im not paying (thank god) my centerpieces are hurricane vases with a large garland round them at 85 each, we have 10 tables, and we have 2 large curved stands that will go on either side or us when we are married and then moved to the top table there will be a lot of flowers on these, we also have 4 vases of hydrangeas on the top table and hydrangea petals in between each tier of cake so there are a lot of flowers and I do have very expensive taste lol.

    Also we have no deliver, set up charge or pick up charge, and this is important as we are in the middle of no where.

    I had my top table flowers included in my package but the rest was 360 for

    Bridal bouquet (Calla lillies and roses)
    2 bridesmaids bouquets (roses and thistles)
    fishbowl centrepieces for 7 tables (Thistles and roses)
    7 buttonholes (Thistles with a white rose for groom)
    2 thank you bouquets for the Maw and Maw in law (bizarre crazy colourful flowers of which I have no idea of names!)

    I didn't go for anything too complicated or exotic though as hubby has horrific hayfever and didn't want him to keel over mid wedding or sneeze his way through the vows!

    Ours was 210 for the following:

    my bouquet
    bridesmaid bouquet
    flower girl bouquet
    buttonholes x7
    corsages x2

    All includes roses and freesias plus hydrangea for my bouquet. I wanted peonies for my bouquet but quickly dropped them once I found out their cost.

    Top table arrangement was included with my venue (we used it for the ceremony as well) and for the table centre pieces we just went to the garden centre and picked up pots of chilli plants adding extra 32 to the cost (that went down the treat as our guests picked them up at the end of the day).

    I think ours are about 650, that might go up if I need to add another centrepiece.

    As it stands that is for:
    Brides bouquet
    2x bridesmaid bouquets
    2x corsages for mums
    5x buttonholes
    top table flowers
    7x centrepieces
    ivory rose petals scattered either side of aisle.

    I'm getting married in April and having seasonal flowers.
