I've often spoken to new brides who just don't know where to start in regards to budgeting for their wedding flowers. How much do things cost? What type of things do I need to consider?
All great questions and ones I hear frequently, making me realise that something like this indicative price guide needs to exist to help you guys out!
What does 'indicative' mean here?
Floral design is very different to straight out copying an image of a bouquet. There's no design in that, as it's basically just replicating someone else's design. As each client's floral requirements vary based on budget, theme and style, our designs vary alongside it. This is what makes such a bespoke service difficult when it comes to publishing a price guide.
For this very reason, indicative pricing is used here to provide an average of what the typical Lime Tree Bower client would spend for our most popular creations.
What is not included here?
Whilst we've done our best to provide an indication of pricing here, there are aspects of a wedding that's difficult for us to provide an indication for since it can vary so much.
This includes delivery/travel, set up and pack down costs, as well as more bespoke items such as rose petals for aisles, hanging installations etc.
What varies the price for any one particular item?
Prices can vary due to volume, complexity of styling and flower range, seasonality of flower varieties requested, location of venues etc.
We recommend using the "10-15% of your total wedding budget" guideline that's often spoken about, as a ballpark to help estimate how much you should spend on wedding flowers.
Bridal bouquet $190
Bridesmaid bouquets $150
Flower crowns $80
- For weddings taking place in 2018 and beyond, services involving ceremony or reception florals have a minimum total spend of $2000. This does not include the day's logistics & travel fee.
- All pricing is inclusive of GST.
