How much should I spend on my wedding flowers? by Vancouver Florist Adele Rae

Wedding Florist in Burnaby Canada

When planning your wedding, one of the key elements to consider is the floral arrangements and bridal bouquets. Flowers can add a touch of elegance and beauty to your special day, but how much should you really spend on them?

Some Factors to Consider

The cost of wedding flowers can vary depending on several factors. The type of flowers you choose , the season (if you like peonies and your wedding is in peony season, the price will be reasonable, but if you want peonies for example on Winter, the flowers need to be imported and will cost 3 times more than in Summer), or course the size of your wedding arrangements, the city or country where you live, and the florist you work with all play a role in determining the final price. It's not the same if you have a wedding in Mexico, in US or in Canada. A florist will charge depending on the experience and reputation in the market.

General Guidelines

As a general rule of thumb, couples typically allocate between 8 - 15% of their total wedding budget to flowers. This percentage can help you determine a starting point for your floral budget. If you are in Canada, the recommendation for a bridal bouquet is a $200 starting point, however it could be made for less or much more than that.

Setting a Budget

Before meeting with florists, it's important to have a clear budget in mind and a vision for your event, the florist needs to know what is your colour palette, your bridesmaids, what colour are they using?, before asking for a wedding floral consultation, we recommend you that browse on Pinterest and Instagram, in both platforms you will find endless examples and trends. As well, consider what is most important to you when it comes to floral arrangements and prioritize your spending accordingly.

DIY vs. Professional

While some couples opt to DIY their wedding flowers to save money, it's important to consider the time, effort, and expertise required, some people have the misconception that making a floral arrangement is easy and fun, but requires professional skills, you don't want your arrangements to be dead at the middle of the wedding or flowers falling apart. Hiring a professional florist can ensure that your floral arrangements are expertly crafted and stress-free.

Final Thoughts

Ultimately, the amount you should spend on your wedding flowers is a personal decision. Take the time to research florists, compare prices, and find a balance between your budget and your vision for your special day.
