The Secrets of Wedding Flower Pricing

The Secrets of Wedding Flower Pricing

We know wedding flower pricing can be super confusing and overwhelming. Let’s make it simple.

We offer our services to a range of brides including elopements and micro weddings to full package weddings.

They range from $850 – $15,000.

What alters the price?

♥ the items chosen
♥ location and travel
♥ abundance of the design
♥ tools and equipment needed
♥ freelancers needed to execute the design
♥ the time it takes to organise, prep and create the designs

How do I know what my specific budget will get me?

Ask us! There are so many variables that come into play, there’s no one size fits all when it comes to wedding flower pricing.

Why do you pay wedding florists labour?

♥ Designing
Consultations, emails, quotes, contracts, invoices, mood boards, research, final run-through, ordering, spreadsheets, stem counts, ordering flowers from suppliers.

♥ Markets
Drive to flower markets at 4am, choose the best blooms, pick-up orders, pack car, drive home.

♥ Processing
Unpack the car, unwrap all plastic and cardboard, undo rubber bands and twine, strip, peel, trim, scold, bash. Place in fresh buckets of water in the flower fridge.

♥ Creating
Creating the actual arrangements. Keeping them alive, ensuring the product looks fresh and is visually appealing as well as meeting the brief. Storing safely. Keeping cool.

♥ Wedding Day
Pack the car, deliver personals, drive to venue, unpack car, on-site setup and creating the features, staff & freelancers, keeping area clean and tidy, sticking to schedule.

♥ Bump Out
Midnight or early Sunday morning, drive to venue, pack down all flowers and hire items, ensure space is clean and tidy, drive home, unpack car.

Why do quotes differ between wedding florists?

We work towards ‘Industry Standard Pricing’. Some florists either choose to quote lower or higher or simply pluck numbers from thin air. We use this formula to stay consistent between clients as well as ensuring we’re not damaging the industry.

How to spend your budget wisely?

Focus on what creates the most impact! Include the statement feature items which make people gasp. We love to include the following (everything else is a bonus):

Ceremony: bouquets, ceremony features, welcome sign piece

Reception: bridal table feature, guest table arrangements, fireplace/bar feature.

Table Styling and Reception Florals

Table Styling and Reception Florals

It’s so important to share your ideas with your florist about your table styling and reception florals.

Having a great understanding of the vibe & mood, along with a table styling blueprint will help us do our job so much better!

But why?

We want your table florals to flow & match the rest of your wedding as much as possible! To feel & create a seamless, aesthetic space…it all must be connected. Which is why you should let us know the little table details such as the:

  • candle shapes/colours
  • fabric table runner colours
  • decor used
  • food or fruit displayed
  • style of table and whether your guests are sitting or standing at a cocktail reception
  • any additional styling details

Pinterest is a great tool to gather inspiration for table styling and reception florals.

Using your inspiration & our signature Esme Fleur style, we can create floral table designs that are truly incredible.
