Custom items, more expensive blooms, higher guest count, destination location or multiple locations, and applicable sales taxes all contribute to the final cost. On average, our couples spend between $5,500-8,500 for a full service event for 100-1500 guests.
Do you require a retainer to secure your services?
After your initial consultation, an estimated price is provided based on your event needs, wants, and wish list.

What is a realistic floral/decor design budget?

More luxiour or elaborate customized floral and decor will be closer to 25-35%. Many of the elaborate designs that you may find on Pinterest will require a larger percentage of your budget.
