    OK so I finally heard back from our wedding coordinator she quoted me $133.00 for:

    7 green cymbidium orchids @$12 each = $84

    3 Ivory roses @ $4 each + $12

    Fee for making bouquet = $25

    Single white cymbidium orchid for hair = $12

    Total = $133

    I also asked her about their pricing for a canopy rental and she said

    "They usually start at around $300 plus delivery"

    For those of you who have already priced out canopies and flowers does these prices seem high or about right?

      We're paying $300 (including delivery) for this canopy. I wanted something simple and flow-y so I opted for no flowers. Also, we won't have the table but we will have a microphone stand.

        Ok - having trouble getting the image here. I've tried the vbucket and html.

        Tammy - what are we supposed to do?

        OK - I figured it out!

          Where did you order your canopy from? Was their a delivery fee or was it included? WIP marks things up so freakin high that I use them at a pricing point and "hope" to find it myself for cheaper, if all else fails I book through them.

            Maye is sourcing it for me. The $300 includes delivery and set up. Sorry - I don't know where she is getting it.

            Are you sourcing flowers yourself? If so, ask the florist if they can supply a canopy for $300 including set up. Don't ask them how much it would cost for a canopy - just give them the price and then ask them to supply a picture of what it would look like.

              I don't want flowers on the canopy, I was just thinking a fabric maybe light ivory or olive green draped over it.

                OK - cool, so I can just right click on the picture in photobucket and then paste it in?

                Trying... Darn it - it didn't work. I didn't see a "paste" option. Maybe I didn't set up my account correctly?

                  Hay Tammy, I am getting a canopy w/fabric only (read: no flowers) for $250 from Maye. It's a bamboo chuppah type thing - just pretty & flowy, light & airy. Just what I wanted!

                  I got a horrendous quote for the same thing from Fun & Motivation some time ago, it was like $800 plus delivery, plus set up, plus tax & service. Total came to over $1K. Fricking rediculous, huh? Anyway, I think $300 should be about right.

                    Actually the pricing seems very competitive. For the flowers, especially the orchids that sounds about right. Are you using them for the bouquet, corsage, boutonniere. Make sure the appropriate people know since they have to be wired if used in an arrangment. The canopy pricing is about the best that I've seen! Keep us posted...
