    I've been going back and forth between the wedding coordinator for flowers as well as an outside florists.  Everyone has warned me about the high pricing from the resort florist.. and WHOA were they right.

     

    My outside vendor fee is low at $150 per vendor and I have already booked the outside florist but I wanted to share with you my experience.

     

    I started talking to the outside florist even before I booked the resort since flowers are important to me. He has been very helpful and always responds to his messages. For the resort florist - I have to go through the coordinator so its very difficult to convey my vision and attach photos, etc.  It's like we were playing telephone.

     

     

    This is the pricing I received from the outside florist:

    Tall centerpieces: $175 - tall cylinder clear vase with white roses, white mums

    Low centerpieces:$85 - Small cylinder with matching arrangement as tall centerpiece

     

    Prices from resort florist:

    Tall: $550

    Low:$300

     

    Yes, huge difference in pricing.  I showed both florists the photos attached and while I know there are orchids in the arrangement, I mentioned to both of them to take out orchids since I know they are expensive.  This was where the outside florist was much easier to go back and forth with.

    For my bouquet:

    I am going with white roses and dendrobrium orchids with silver pins in the center


    Sorry, I posted too soon:

     

    For my bouquet:

    I am going with white roses and dendrobrium orchids with silver pins in the center

    outside vendor: $165

    resort florist: $250Attached File  silver pins.jpg   43.65KB   4 downloads

     

    Matching boutonnieres cost $15

     

    So far my total cost for flowers is $1530 and this includes:

    4 tall centerpieces at $175 a piece (this includes white wooden boxes for the vase to stand on during the ceremony.  We will then move all the flowers to the reception area).

    2 low centerpieces at $85 a piece

    flower petals to cover the aisle at $200

    my bouquet at $165

    matching boutonniere at $15

    2 arrangements on the white curtain for $75 a piece (these will be recycled for the bride and groom table

    Flower girl and ring bearer flowers: $30 total

    $100 delivery and setup fee

     

    I am utilizing the free bouquet that comes in my package for my bridesmaid and the 2 corsages/2 boutonnieres for the parents.

    My budget for flowers was $2k so I am currently under budget which I am very happy about after hearing girls spend $5k on flowers.  I will have to add or remove things as I find out how many guests are coming but this is what I have so far.  I might add another arrangement for the escort card table.

     

    How much did you ladies spend on flowers?  Or what was your experience like?
