General Wedding & Event Floral Design Information

Flowers elevate the look of any wedding.

The best flowers are sourced anywhere from local flower farms to the New York flower market, to even local gardens. Sometimes pots of plants are purchased to be able to utilize hard to find flowers for that finishing touch or that special color. Much thought goes into every detail of the floral design work and process.

Trying to DIY florals for your wedding is much more involved than what it seems on the surface.

You probably will not want the extra stress of having to worry about creating your own bouquets and centerpieces during the week of your wedding! Conditioning flowers and prep work are involved in order to make the flowers last for your event.

If DIY'ing is something you would still like to work on for your own wedding, I offer private one-on-one workshops to teach you how to make a bouquet, boutonniere, and centerpiece. More information in the workshop section here or contact me. 

Floral Design Work versus Event Design Work

Floral design work is designing all the floral aspects of the wedding. Event design work is providing conceptualization and art direction for the overall look of the event and is a separate type of service and charge.

What is the general process?

The general process is:

  • After review of the information form and after consultation meeting, a quote is provided.
  • If accepted, then a contract is signed.
  • A non-refundable deposit is paid which essentially holds the date of the wedding.
  • A proposal is created which provides in-depth details of all florals to be used for each piece.
  • Closer to the wedding date, details are finalized (example - need timeline for the day) and final amount is paid in full. 

Pricing Explanation. Why do flowers cost the way they do?

 The main factors that will affect the cost of your flowers include:

  • Types of flowers used (example would be the David Austin blush garden roses which are considered high-end roses and cost much more than the standard rose you see in the grocery store).
  • The region of the country where you live.
  • The skill level of the designer. New designers typically charge less for their services because they have less experience. More experienced designers will charge more (they have more experience).
  • Having a store front and number of employees also affects price.

Other factors include:

  • Size of wedding party
  • Guest count
  • Size of arrangement or bouquet
  • Seasonality of flowers
  • Labor to create the flower bouquets and arrangements
  • Type of labor needed day of event (delivery, need for staff to stay during the event for set up, room changes, etc), breakdown. These costs are not included with the price of the flowers.

Common line items you might typically see in a quote may include:

  • Line items for each type of arrangement needed
  • Design work
  • Rentals of items such as vessels, candles, arbors etc
  • Labor for delivery, installation, set-up, room change, and breakdown
  • Tax

Centerpiece prices depend on size and type of flowers. Designing a low piece with the lush designs that are typically seen in magazines are difficult to design for less than $150 because of the number of stems, supplies, and labor involved (example certain flowers need to be wired properly, support is needed for the flowers to stand upright, etc).

Bud vases are typically $25 and up which is surprisingly more labor intensive than it seems (filling hundreds of vases with water, placing stems in each vase, organizing etc).

Taller, elevated designs are typically $250 and up which requires hundreds of stems. In addition to the flowers, there is also rental fee for the vessel used which is a separate line item on the quote.

Long farm-style tables require more than one arrangement. Depending on the length of the table, you will need more than one arrangement in odd numbers for balance (3, 5, 7 and so forth). When designing for long tables factors such as how the food is served is taken into consideration (platters for family style eating or will the food be served to each person thus leaving more room for tablescape design).

Cake flowers. Fresh flowers are not cut from the bridal bouquet for the cake designer to use. If the cake designer would like to use flowers similar to what is in the bouquet, they need to provide advance notification so those flowers can be purchased and charged accordingly. Cutting flowers directly from the bouquets ruins the hard work dedicated in creating the bride’s bouquet.
