How Much Should I Budget For My Wedding Flowers?
It’s recommended that you budget 10-15% of your overall wedding spend on flowers. This does not mean that you can’t have beautiful flowers if you budget less – it’s all about preference and seasonality.
If flowers are one of the most important investments in your wedding and premium flowers are a must, you can expect to pay more and likely go beyond the recommended allocation for flowers. If you’re more interested in less flowers consisting of what’s in season when and where you’re getting married, you can allocate a smaller percentage than what’s recommended while still having exactly what you want.
This is not a one size fits all number – there is no set price. Consider how many arrangements, bouquets and ceremony flowers you’ll need, as these will cost the most, and mention this number to your florist when you speak to them. Ultimately, your florist will be able to help you figure out the best flowers for your budget, or lack thereof, and help bring your vision to life.
The more prepared you are for your first florist meeting, the more you can expect to get out of it in return.
