How much does it cost to send a bouquet of flowers? It all depends...

Posted by Michelle Hughes on

One of the most common questions asked about florists online is

"How much does it cost to send a bouquet of flowers?"

First of all, let's distinguish the difference between a flower bouquet and a flower arrangement.  Florists define a bouquet as flowers and greenery that is wrapped in paper and carried out by the customer.  As a general rule florists don't deliver bouquets since they need water and there may be several deliveries on the van, it may be hot outside, etc.

A flower arrangement on the other hand is hand crafted in a vase, urn or other container.  There is enough water to keep the flowers happy for a day or two and the vessel can be reused.  Normally an arrangement costs more than a bouquet but it really depends on the size of each.  A wedding bouquet can cost several times more than a flower arrangement.

A flower arrangement can cost as little as $25.  Many of the flower call centers and conglomerates that operate online have loss leaders, a product meant to catch your attention that does make them any money, at around that rate.  However, the more you pay, the more you receive when it comes to flower arrangements.

At Bloomstall Flower Boutique our flower arrangements start at $65.00  A bouquet on the other hand can cost as little as $15, but there won't be but a few flowers in it.  We have a flower bucket wall where you can select your own flowers and greenery and we will wrap it in paper for you.

The cost of a hand designed flower arrangement increases as you add flowers and greenery, and when you increase the size of the vessel.  The larger the vessel, the more flowers it takes to fill it.

As a general rule of thumb, a custom flower arrangement from an independent florist that's not part of FTD or Teleflora will run between $55 and $300, again remembering, the higher the price the higher the number of flowers included.  The types of flowers used can also affect the cost.  Roses are more expensive than mums, peonies are more expensive than roses, etc.
