Every bride planning her big day wants to know how much do wedding flowers cost. It's a difficult question to answer absolutely, as of course you can spend as much or as little as you feel like.

The three main areas of expenditure are Personal Flowers, Reception Flowers and Wedding Ceremony flowers.
There are also various additional decorations that could add to your wedding flowers' cost, such as scattered rose petal confetti at the reception, hair decorations for bride and bridesmaids, wall or pillar garlanding.
Ethnic weddings of various cultures each have their own set of must-have flowers from Chuppah decoration in the synagogue to Hindu wedding garlands, which can make it difficult to easily estimate your wedding flower costs.
Choice of flower type can also make a big difference to cost. In order of cost per stem: Ranuculus, Gerbera, Lisianthus, Rose, Lily, Hydrangea. However one stem of hydrangea will fill space that would take several roses so it may work out as helping to lower your wedding flower costs.
