There is so much flexibility and range when it comes to deciding on a budget for your wedding flowers. It is important to evaluate, as a couple, how important fresh flowers are for your wedding day, after all, IT'S YOUR DAY and should reflect your tastes and styles.
As a good rule of thumb, we suggest your minimum floral budget account for 10-15% of your overall wedding budget. This would be a minimal coverage approach, with touches of florals in the important areas. (ie. Overall Budget of $35,000 = Floral Spend of $3,500-$5,250)
If you are looking for that Pinterest-worthy, abundant design, we would suggest closer to 20-25% of your total wedding budget. This would be a large coverage approach, with florals being the main decoration investment. (ie. Overall Budget of $35,000 = Floral Spend of $7,000-$8,750)
Below is by no means a complete list, but is a great starting point. Like everything else wedding-related there are so many ‘what ifs’ and ‘except this’ scenarios. The following is meant to be a general guide to help you plan which items could be covered within your price range.
For us, anything under $3000 is considered a mini-wedding or elopement package.
Bouquets, boutonnieres, and vase arrangements/centerpieces are available "a-la-carte" and typically for pickup or without full set-up options.
Floral Heavy or Larger Weddings Start Here
As well as everything listed above, this price range opens up the options for either a larger wedding or greater and more intricate installations. For those who want the floral decor to be the main decorative statement, this is a good budget range.
Possibilities vary, but at this price, you could have a variety of tall and short centerpieces, entryway arrangements/urns, and extra floral decor around the reception space. This would also allow for a grand and well-covered Ceremony space, with full arch, aisle markers, etc.
Standard Weddings Start Here
Depending on the size of the bridal party, this will cover all of the personal flowers (bouquets, boutonnieres, flower crowns) as well as family personal pieces. This would also cover several table centerpieces for the reception, we would suggest smaller arrangements on each table or a collection of bud vases and foliage to fit the number of tables.
Instead of centerpieces, this could allow for a large feature installation at the ceremony (perhaps a full archway with florals) or the reception (cascading foliage installation with pops of flowers throughout). Depending on the size and number of arrangements needed, this could also cover the aisle markers, or decorative statement pieces at the reception.
Very Large (300+ Guests) Weddings Start Here
Increased Guest tables, aisle markers, and size/scope of florals needed.
All areas of the wedding will have floral touches, staircases, entryway, welcome signs, the list could be endless, allowing for ultimate creativity and premium floral embellishments.
