[MUSIC] Coinage, Life, well spent, presented by GEICO. Couples getting married can expect to spend 8% of their total budgets on wedding flowers. This amount covers the bride's bouquet, bridesmaid's bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, and ceremony and reception arrangements. If you are selecting a flower that is out of season, you'll pay a higher fee. Those flowers that are easy to grow, or are mass produced, typically cost less. Bridal bouquets, which include one to two different flowers, cost around $150. While elaborate bouquets cost anywhere between 350 to $500. A table arrangements can cost around $20 per table. While more complex designs can be around 300 to $400. Just like a bouquet, the price can change depending on the experience of your florist. Looking for a cheaper option? Make sure to meet with your florist ahead of time in order to discuss your budget. They may just have inexpensive alternatives to your favorite flower. [SOUND] Coinage. Life, well spent.
