Clueless about what wedding flowers cost? You're not alone. Pricing for any wedding aspect is usually a mystery for the newly engaged, but flowers are notoriously hard to find costs for without first discussing your ideas with a floral designer. It's not that florists are trying to keep you in the dark; we just don't want to throw out general numbers for designs that may not fit your needs. Floral decor is one of the most customizable parts of a fully custom day and costs fluctuate dramatically.
Your florist wants to know your floral budget at your initial consultation, though, so how in the world are you supposed to figure it out?
I'm introducing a series of posts that will hopefully shed some light on floral costs for those who have no idea where to start building their floral budget. We'll look at costs associated with flowers, additional fees you can expect to see, and I'll put together a few sample budgets. At the end of the series, you should have a good foundation for putting together your own budget and know how to more effectively communicate with your floral designer.
I hope you'll follow along and welcome any questions that you may have!
