List of Cost-effective to High-end Flowers for Weddings November 30, 2010

This is a basic list of flower types grouped by general pricing, to help brides not get their heart set on pricey flowers when they are on a very basic budget, or vice-versa! Please note that pricing is variable depending on the time of year.  And this pricing is based on dependable wholesalers who can be counted on to be able to get quality florals  for our brides.

The price of the bouquet is also dependent on how many stems are needed to fill out the space. Hydrangeas tend to be a much larger bloom, so you only need a few to fill the same bouquet compared to a smaller flower like a freesia or ranunculus.
