What Can I Expect to Pay For Wedding Flowers?
Thank you for your interest in Ziegfield Florist & Gifts as a prospective wedding florist.
As you navigate the complexities of planning a wedding, whether your plan involves a spectacular, black-tie affair, an intimate gathering of family or something in between, many factors enter into the planning process. It's fine to dream, but easier to turn that dream to reality if it's grounded with a budget. Flowers are an important piece of the wedding puzzle, as they appear in nearly every photo taken on your wedding day. They must convey the unique vision of each bride and groom. Each couple's budget will differ along with their vision and our designers will work within that budget to provide flower arrangements that will not simply meet your expectations, but will exceed your dreams. We have provided a table (below) to assist you. These aren't concrete numbers, but should help to determine what is a fair flower budget if you don't have one or what you might expect from the buget you already have set. Numbers aside, the actual cost of a bridal bouquet could range from $0 if you pick some flowers from your garden, tie them up with a ribbon and call it a day, to a fortune if you insist on Rotchschild’s orchids which cost $5,000 per stem. .
The costs of your wedding flowers, in fact all flowers, are largely determined by two factors: the price of the flowers themselves (which includes shipping them to our wholesaler and then to Ziegfield from where they were grown, which is often South America); and the cost of the labor needed to order, receive and arrange them. Certain flowers cost less, typically because they are easy to grow and are produced in abundance throughout the year. Some examples of inexpensive flowers you might choose for your wedding: carnations, baby’s breath, alstroemeria and a number of rose varieties. Flowers are much more expensive when they are difficult to grow and thus produced in smaller quantities. An example is the peony, which takes two years to bloom. Orchids and calla lilies are also among the higher-priced varieties. If you choose these for your bouquets or boutonnieres or centerpieces, you’ll see your arrangement and bouquet prices rise accordingly. However, don’t let price alone be your deciding factor. Remember it's still your dream! A single peony or garden rose might be expensive, but each fills out a bouquet differently and makes more of a visual impact than a far less expensive carnation. Also, when prospective brides show us pictures of the arrangements and bouquets they envision for their weddings, in most cases, we are able to recreate the looks using more of the less expensive flowers in similar colors and shapes along with a few higher priced flowers. Et voila'! Your vision at a reasonable price.
You can see that there is a lot to consider when choosing flowers, but you aren't choosing just flowers, you are choosing a team of designers who understand your uniqueness and your vision for your dream wedding. We at Ziegfield Florist are that team. We take a personal approach to every wedding we help to create. We would like to offer you a no cost or obligation consultation where we can sit down at a convenient time.
