I got the estimate from the ICKY florist..

They told me that it would be $607.91 for my flowers.

Seems a little high to me considering we are doing baby's breath AND we don't need ANY flowers for centerpieces.

Everything seemed reasonably priced until I saw the corsages... They were as much as the bridesmaid bouquets!!! Is it normal for a corsage to be nearly $20 a piece?

I guess that was just one aspect that I did not look into very much. Other than that, they seemed pretty fair.

Here is the break down... He made a mistake and said only 1 Junior Bridesmaid... we have 4.

Does this look fair? Is there anywhere that I can negotiate? I thought the delivery charge was VERY fair. Only $15 bucks. I just don't know much about flowers, and I want to make sure I get the best deal possible!!

I guess we will find out just how fair they were when we go see the REAL florist in the morning...

What did your flower break down look like?

Take care until next time,

WHOA - is this from the same lady with the Russian accent as below? Seems a little high to me too, but we're doing a destination wedding so I never met with a florist.

I agree, it seems a little pricey. Especially for baby's breath. Have you ever considered DIY, at least for part of the flowers? Price out flowers, attempt a few on your own, then decide. I am going with a florist, due to the fact that our bouquets are a mixutre of several flowers, and purchasing them and the supplies would save us hardly anything. But I have had several friends who were able to DIY and saved hundreds!

It seems pricey but I have no idea... but i think it does! I like the idea of DIY with the baby breath bouqet. Go to costco or some outlet and buy them wholsale!
