I’m often asked how much is a Bridal Bouquet?
Well it all depends on the types of flowers you want to use and the style.
It’s not always cheaper to use lesser expensive flowers if you are looking for a cascade styled bouquet.
Cascade Bridal Bouquets traditionally are more expensive.
Cascade Bouquets require sometimes hours of labor to create.
Many of the flowers have to be wired and taped to create the cascading style of the bouquet.
Where the Hand Tied Bridal Bouquet tends to be less labor intensive.
Although some Hand Tied Bridal Bouquets do require certain flowers to be wired and taped which will increase the cost of the bouquet.
You can expect to pay anywhere from 75 – 100% more for a Cascade Bridal Bouquet over the Hand Tied Bridal Bouquet.
If you are looking to save money on your Bridal Bouquets my suggestion is to stick to simple flowers such as Hydrangea and Roses in a Hand Tied Bouquet Style.
These flowers are in season all year round.
A Traditional Hand Tied Rose Bride’s Bouquet typically starts in the 50-70 dollar range depending on how full you want your bouquet. This is using your traditional Standard Roses. If you are looking for Garden Roses you can expect to spend 50-75% more for these since Garden Roses are much more delicate and don’t last as long as the Standard Roses.
Hydrangea Bridal Bouquets are on the lesser expensive end of the spectrum.
If you stick to the White or Light Blue Hydrangea you can have a bouquet created starting at 25 dollars and up.
When you select specialty Hydrangeas such as Lime Green, Deep Purple, Dark Blue, Deep Pink, etc. You can add up to 75 – 100% to the cost of the bouquet. These Hydrangea are typically much smaller than the White and Light Blue and are more expensive. It will take more to create a bouquet of the same size.
The White and Light Blue Hydrangea can be tinted to create the same look and feel as the darker varieties.
If I have a Bride looking for deep purple Hydrangea I will typically use up to 4 different shades of flower tint to create the natural look of the deep purple Hydrangea to keep it looking natural.
In my opinion spend the money on the Bridal Bouquet and when it comes to the Bridesmaids Bouquets simplify and save money.
