Curiosity got the best of me, and I started to wonder how much the average bride in the U.S. spends on her wedding flowers. When I found the results for 2011, I have to admit I was taken back!
What Brides Are Spending: $1,200- $2,000
What You Could Spend if You DIY: $150-$300
If you are a budget bride, this is some must read stuff! After this, you will understand exactly why you should order freshly cut flowers and make your own wedding arrangements! On AVERAGE brides spend around $1,200 – $2,000 on wedding arrangements!!!!!! But here, on Blooms By The Box, the average spending cost for wedding flowers ranges from $150-$300!!! THAT’S A DEAL!
There is no shame in being a DIY Bride; we understand that most people rather spend money on their happy ending rather than only their happy first day. You can use all that extra money to put a down payment on a house or invest in your new home. There are so many ways to have a beautiful wedding without being the average bride that spends 25,000 bucks on a wedding!
Okay, so here’s the proof!
This “True Cost of a Wedding” graph found on Divine Caroline is the perfect display of why you should consider being a DIY bride! The average cost for the florist was $1,988.00! OUCHIE!
I looked at a bunch of sites to make sure these results were accurate, and it turns out they are!
WeddingStats.org says “In 2011, the average cost of a floral wedding decor is between $1,844-$2,062 While the cost of a wedding varies by region, season and style, all indicators show that couples are beginning to increase their overall wedding budget spending in 2011.”
Just remember, you don’t have to be the bride that spends $2,000.00 on your wedding flowers! You an in control of your budget and when you have that cash for things that you really, honestly need you will be so happy you were a DIY BRIDE!
