Are you looking to get a rough idea of how much your wedding flowers are going to cost? Well you’ve come to the right place. This wedding flower cost calculator will help you do just that.
Disclaimer: This calculator has been created as a rough guide based on industry averages. Each wedding will have a different requirements, including the types of flowers, number of flowers needed and other factors such as flower availability/seasonality.
What Is A Good Flower Budget For Wedding?
A good flower budget for a wedding is between $2000-$4500. Although, what you can afford and what it ultimately costs you will depend on several factors, including the flowers you choose, the florist you go with, seasonality (for flower availability), the size of your wedding venue and the amount of flowers you want to have in your venue.
Therefore, what is a good flower budget will ultimately come down to context.
Although at a minimum, you are looking at around the $1000 mark, and the majority of the time wedding flowers cost double if not more than this.
That being said, flowers are considered a ‘nice to have’ and many florists can work to lower budgets – sticking mostly to foliage (such as eucalyptus) and cheaper in-season flowers should you need to reduce cost.

The best way to calculate your wedding flower budget is to breakdown all of the various flower elements you desire. From there, you can use the industry averages to calculate a rough estimate of total cost.
Better still would be to get in contact with individual florists to get some quotes.
