What is everyone spending on flowers for their wedding? just looking for rough ideas. was budgeting around €500. Is this enough
Have you visited florist to get an idea of prices?
We said we were not spending a lot on flowers but the quotes i got forthe bouquets alone was between 100 - 125 for mine and 65-90 for the b/m. That alone would be the guts of 500. (i have 4 bms)
and the flowers for the church. If you know someone who could arrange them you could buy a lot of flowers in the smithfield market for that.
I am not sure if this helps or confuses you
ours are costing €1028 for the lot:
4 button holes
3 presentation bouquets
4 arrangement for graves
2 trees for outside the church
2 arrangements for the alter & 2 pedestals for behind the alter
6 candles & arrangements of berries for the windows
arrangement of berries for the memorial candle
gerbera and material for pew ends
flowers for cake
Edited to say: ours are probably a bit more expensive as it's Christmas
3 bm bouquets
for €350. Flowers for the venue are working out at another couple of hundred, and I've to check with the church about the flowers there.
Our budget is €800, which is a good deal for what we're getting.
Do shop around drifferent Florist's as the price's can vary hugely...
Where are you based? our budget is €500 too. found a florist in kells and she quoted me €390 for:
4 bm corsages
2 mob & mog pin corsages
2 large arrangements for the church
2 small arrangements for the church (altar)
Thought this was pretty good! One thing I would recommend is to shop around. I was initially looking in florists in the town where Im from and i just decided to try the next town over and lo and behold they were much much cheaper.
Frustrated Bride to be
2 bridesmaid bouquets

It will depend when your getting married & what you actually want.

Holy moley that seems like a lot New Year 08 is that because its new years?
But the table centre piece's are large floral displays & includes hire of candlebras. All round I think it's really good value
Yeah Grace Ann yeah it New year's eve - but I found it really hard to even get a florist as alot of them close Xmas eve and don't open until 3/4th Jan
