Do you have a minimum for flowers and event decor?

Yes, our minimums are tailored to meet the specific needs of your wedding or event. Our comprehensive full-service pricing includes floral arrangements, event decor, design consultation, labor, delivery, set-up, and break down. Factors such as custom floral designs, premium blooms, guest count, destination weddings, multiple event locations, and applicable sales taxes all influence the final cost.

 

Typically, our wedding couples and event clients invest between $5,500 and $8,500 for a full-service design (flowers and decor) for events hosting 100-150 guests. For flowers only, the average cost ranges from $4,500 to $6,500 for similar guest counts.

What is a realistic floral/decor design budget?

For today's most popular and elaborated designs it is suggested that you allow 15-35% of your total budget for flowers and/or decor (this includes rentals, fine linens, and props).  More luxurious  or elaborate customized floral and decor will be closer to 25-35%. Many of the elaborate designs that you may find on social media will require a larger percentage of your budget.

 

Also, keep in mind that the more guests that you have the more centerpieces and other decor items are needed.  We can offer a more accurate estimate based on the details that you provide on our contact form and during your initial consultation.
