    Hi Ladies, I'm getting married in Vegas on August 15th, 2009.

    I have hired a florist and given her a deposit but am finding that her mockups for my wedding leave a lot to be desired and are slightly overpriced
    (I think)...$340 for my bridal bouquet?
    I have found that she will listen to my request and then do a mockup or send me a photo of something that is not even close to what I had asked for.

    As you can imagine this is leading to some feelings of frustration on my part.
    I want to enjoy this process - Not be frustrated by it.

    That being said, I have 2 questions for you...

    Do you think $340 is too much to pay for a bridal bouquet?

    Have you worked with a good florist in Las Vegas that you can recommend?

      Well, my bouquet is only going to be $120. But the price can vary from low to extremely high depending on the types of flowers you want.

      What flowers did you request to have in your bouquet? (My bouquet is going to have roses which helps keep it reasonably priced).

        Also, the price for flowers may be alot more expensive in Vegas because they are not grown there. It's nothing but desert and everything has to be brought in.

          That does seem like a lot. I thought the islands were more expensive since everything has to be flown in, but Vegas is right here! That is unfair that they charge that much, just because they can. This may be a weird suggestion, but they have Costco in Las Vegas. Why not order their bulk bouquets and centerpieces? The prices include delivery and they are very inexpensive.

              Thanks for your replies Ladies. My bridal bouquet was to include some roses and some lilies and some dried filler. It was nothing out of the ordinary. I looked at the costco website and found that basically for the price of my bouquet I could get the entire wedding flower ensemble.

              1 Bridal bouquet
              2 Brides Maid bouquets
              1 Toss Away bouquet
              6 Corsages
              6 Attendant boutonnieres
              3 Centerpieces (vases not included)
              1 Rose Petal bud


              What a Deal!

              Also, I can order 100 stems of Roses for $100. Or 50 calla lillies for $90. The options are endless. My super talented MOH and I can put together our own bouquets!

              The $1500 I was going to spend on Flowers is now looking more like $500....So What to spend the extra $1000 on is the question.

              I Love it! Thank You!

                Costco is awsome and their flowers are beautiful! A friend of mine bought the calla lily package for her wedding and looked great!
