From venue and décor to the attire and food, you spend a lot of time and money on creating the perfect wedding. Did you know that ceremony flowers and wedding centerpieces are the core component of every wedding? Flowers tie the entire theme together; adding extra pops of color to walls and tables, even down the magical aisle where the bride meets her groom. As essential as they are to weddings, most couples are taken aback when the bill comes in.
Why are wedding centerpieces so expensive? The most straightforward answer we can give is that, in general, flowers are just expensive. We also discussed wedding flower pricing in our previous blog post. Anyone who has inspected bridal bouquets and flower archways will notice they are comprised of numerous individual buds and blossoming blooms. An all rose bridal bouquet alone generally includes up to 30 stems of premium roses! While our expert staff will always keep your budget and theme in mind, it’s important for you to know exactly why wedding flowers often come with an eye-catching price tag.
The Cost of Wedding Flowers
Choosing flower decor for your wedding is not an easy task. It typically takes two hours of design time and care just to perfect each bridal bouquet. Brides.com published an article breaking down the individual cost of each flower arrangement for a common wedding. The complete floral budget can vary greatly depending on how many flowers you want and the types of those flowers. However, the average cost of DC wedding flowers ranges from $2,500 to over $5,000. Couples that desire more elaborate flower décor are known to set aside at least $10,000 for a floral décor budget.
At Klassy Kreations, we cannot put a final price tag on wedding flowers, but we can promise to create an exquisite floral experience for you and your guests. When choosing your wedding flowers, remember that out of season blooms are more expensive, and flowers come in tiered price levels. For example, garden roses, peonies, and calla lilies are top-tier flowers with a pricey tag. Our design team specializes in timeless wedding floral designs and we take a detailed and comprehensive approach to create the wedding of your dreams through exquisite floral arrangements and stylish event designs.
Services of a DC Wedding Florist
At Klassy Kreations, our services begin as soon as you complete the wedding inquiry form. We review all the details you provide and send you a floral questionnaire. Based on the floral questionnaire responses, we then prepare your customized floral estimate. We then schedule a consultation to discuss the vision for your wedding in more detail. A signed agreement and 25 percent non-refundable retainer is required to reserve your wedding date.
From the date you hire our services until the wedding date, your floral investment goes towards samples, flowers, flower processing, storage, production, delivery, and best of all, cleanup. Our goal is to deliver a stress-free experience, and that means handling all the tedious details.
Save Money on Wedding Flowers
Our design team works hard to ensure we’re the right fit for your wedding flower needs and budget. That’s why we ask every bride to complete out the inquiry form and questionnaire. We strive to provide elegant and exquisite floral arrangements, but we also know that professional floral services come with a price tag. Read below for a few ideas on cutting wedding flower costs.
- Use flowers that are in season during the time of your wedding.
