How much to budget for wedding flowers in 2021?

We are following up on our last post here about wedding flower costs and averages. For today’s post, we will provide helpful examples of wedding flower budget breakdown.

To determine the budget for your wedding flowers, it’s important to discuss as a couple the importance of fresh flowers for your wedding day. Also, consider your venue to determine if it will need extra florals to create your dream wedding.

What percentage of the wedding budget should you allocate to flowers?

As a good rule of thumb, we suggest your floral budget account for 10-15%  of your overall wedding budget. On the other hand, if your dream wedding is exquisite with an abundance of lush florals, we would suggest allocating 20-25% of your total wedding budget. Most of our couples spend between $3,500-$7,500 and some budget more based on their preferences. Remember, it’s your wedding day and the day should reflect your taste and style.

Below is by no means a complete list. Like everything else wedding-flower-related there are so many ‘what ifs’ and ‘except this’ scenarios. The following is meant to be a rough guide to help you plan which items could be covered within your price range.

$7500 – $10,000 Wedding Flower budget

  • With this budget, we often provide a collection of personal flowers, large statement pieces for the ceremony.  For the reception, the budget could allow for a mixture of elegant low and tall floral arrangements and candles for the tables.

Every couple’s wedding vision is unique. It’s almost impossible to provide all the details for every wedding flower budget.  The above looks to provide some guidance on what items can be accounted for within the wedding floral budget.

We have included only the essentials to keep things simple and haven’t mentioned lots of the smaller pieces such as  – flower crowns, cake flowers, bridesmaids bouquets, gift table arrangements.

Also, prices will vary quite a bit depending on the size of the wedding flower arrangements and how many premium blooms are to be included. Peonies, garden roses, orchids, etc. are more premium flowers and the wedding flower budget needs to account for this.

It’s also important to be aware production charges can vary dramatically as well – each venue has it’s own rules on when we can set up and post-event production. All of this has an impact on costs for the day. Production charges also depend on the time of day we need to set-up/post-event tear down as well as the day of the week (Saturdays and Sunday incur premium labor charges and early morning set-ups and late-night Production also incur premium labor charges).

From our perspective, we are happy to provide guidance to our couples on how they can make the biggest impact on their wedding flower budget based on their priorities.

Finally, remember every DC wedding florist prices differently depending on their level of customer service. The wedding florist with a higher level of service will likely charge more. I hope this blog post is helpful as you plan your wedding flower budget. It would be an honor for the Klassy Team to assist you to create the most elegant wedding floral experience of your dream.
