The Average Cost of Wedding Flowers: A Comprehensive Guide


Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! As you dive into the whirlwind of planning, one of the items on your checklist that may come as a surprise in terms of cost is your floral arrangements. Flowers, while undeniably beautiful, can sometimes have a hefty price tag attached. Allow me, a former DIY bride turned florist, to shed some light on the intricacies of floral pricing and what you can expect when working with a florist in Alberta for your special day.


When I was planning my wedding, I was taken aback by the prices of individual stems, particularly those exquisite garden roses I had my heart set on, retailing at $18 per stem. Now, as a florist myself, I understand the reasoning behind these prices. Each florist operates differently, with costs varying based on overhead expenses and experience. In Canada, where our seasonal bloom window is short, we rely on wholesalers who import flowers from around the world, including Holland, California, South America, Africa, Italy, and more. Additionally, there are costs associated with rentals, tools, cleaning products, and the florist's time. Floral design is truly an art form that requires skill, time, and expertise.

Whats the average cost of wedding flowers in Alberta? On average, couples can expect to spend around $3,000 -$5,000 on wedding flowers, encompassing bridal party bouquets & boutonnieres, ceremony arch pieces, guest table centrepieces, and reception decor. However, each wedding is unique, and a custom quote is tailored based on seasonal availability and your specific preferences.

Delivery and setup fees are additional considerations. Adventure Floral, for instance, charges $0.61/km for deliveries outside city limits, with a flat rate of $50 for deliveries within Calgary city limits. Setup services are available at a rate of $35 per hour per designer, although many couples opt for pickup services arranged with their wedding planner or photographer to minimize costs.


Do you have a minimum? As a florist, we understand that every wedding is unique and that budgets vary. While we don't have a strict minimum spend requirement, we do encourage couples to consider their overall floral needs and budget when planning their wedding.

When should you book your wedding florist? We recommend securing your florist at least 8 months in advance, as availability can fill up quickly. It's never too early to start your search, and don't hesitate to reach out even if your wedding date is approaching. We're always happy to recommend other florists if we're unavailable.


Do you have a store font? While we don't have a physical storefront, Adventure Floral operates from a private home-based studio, offering personalized consultations and bespoke floral designs.
