When it comes to determining what you spend on your wedding florals it can be a really foreign decision for many couples. We often find couples are completely unaware of the actual cost of flowers and the work involved in creating floral wedding dreams. And it makes sense that this is foreign, it’s not an everyday item, and it differs greatly from buying a beautiful bouquet from your local florist for a friends birthday, or a sweet bunch of roses from the local market.
Fresh florals are a luxury item and they attract a price point that reflects their availability, transport, keeping them alive (often for days before the wedding), ensuring only the best looking stems are used, the designs that they are used for, and the time and expertise of the florist you have chosen.
Before you start pinning a million beautiful images to your Pinterest board, first sit down and decide what your budget is, what you’re comfortable spending. We can work together to decide which designs and specific floral arrangements are going to work for you. There is no point setting your heart on a ceiling filled with floral floating clouds if it’s absolutely not financially achievable.
When we know what is achievable we can adapt designs to incorporate those elements that are really important for you.
The following is a price guide that we like to share with our couples, it helps set the expectation of what the reality of wedding flowers is, and minimises the surprise of a quote that is well outside your comfort zone.
