Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life! As you plan and choose the various vendors to help make your day special, make sure you are comfortable with the various professionals you ask to make your day as flawless as possible.
Flowers are a significant part of your day. Your photographs will capture your wedding day memories for a lifetime! Keep in mind that your flowers are in most of your photos that day. Find a floral designer who has been recommended to you or has certification initials behind their name. Meet with the designer and share your ideas and see if you feel comfortable with the designer and that he or she catches your vision.
One of the most asked question I am asked as a floral designer is “What is the average cost of flowers for a wedding?” Often I used the analogy of the question “How much does a new car cost?” The answer depends on so many variables such as: types of flowers, type of bouquet design, size of bouquet, number of wedding party, number of personal flowers, ceremony flowers and reception flowers.
Statistics show that most brides spend about 8-10% of their total wedding budget on flowers. This can vary depending on your priorities. What follows is a basic way for you to calculate the price for wedding flowers on your own. I’ve laid out three budget levels for you to go over, but keep in mind that every Bride’s vision is uniquely their own and Flowers By Ranee strives to custom each and every wedding.
The prices listed are estimates and the final costs will be determined by the types of flowers used and the degree of difficulty involved in the designs. It is important to meet and go over all the details before giving you a wedding flower proposal/quote.
