Wedding FAQ's

How much do wedding flowers typically cost?

Bridal Bouquet: $150-$450

Bridesmaid Bouquet: $65-$125

**Please understand that the prices listed can vary based on the factors listed above**

 Do you charge for wedding consultations?

Nope! A member of our wedding team would be happy to meet with you free of charge.

 How early should I book my consultation/wedding date with Gidas?

As soon as you have your dress, bridesmaids dresses, and venue selected. We frequently book full on popular wedding weekends up to a year in advance, so the sooner the better!

 Can I buy flowers in bulk from you, if I want to design my own wedding?

The short answer is: Sure!

We do caution, however, that it is very important to consider that flowers require refrigeration, hydration, and preservative to ensure freshness both leading up to and on the day of your wedding.

Although we would be happy to discuss this option with you, proper flower care and preparation on such an important day may be something better left to floral professionals.

Do you provide additional items besides flowers for weddings?

Yes!  We have a wide selection of vases, elevated stands, ceramic containers, and other decorations as well as a Chuppah, votive candles, plants, roman columns, aisle runners, unity candles, hanging crystals and Swarovski Crystals, feathers, flower girl baskets, and much more.  We can discuss any items you may be interested in purchasing or renting during your consultation, and provide contact information to our affiliate vendors for items we may not personally carry.

 How far will you deliver for a wedding?

Most of our weddings are within a 2-hour driving distance from our location. A minimum may apply for weddings that are more than an hour away or are during a holiday weekend.

 

Gidas Flowers offers a gorgeous selection of bridal bouquets, floral cake decorations, wedding ceremony flowers and centerpieces to fit any budget.
