How far in advance should I book a floral designer?

It's time to book when you are confident that a floral designer can achieve the look and feel you dream of within your budget. The time to start discussing flowers in detail is after you've booked your venue and have a color scheme in mind (e.g. for weddings that typically means you've picked bridesmaids' dresses).

How much should I budget for flowers?

For weddings, the age-old adage is 10% of your overall budget and we've found that to be a pretty good rule of thumb. However, some people LOVE flowers and really want to make an impact, so the percentage of their overall budget may need to increase. To create the lush, boutique style we are known for, here are some numbers to keep in mind.

Weddings: Ceremony decor plus personal flowers plus reception decor plus delivery, setup and breakdown typically begins around $3,500.

Personal flowers for weddings: For those just looking for bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages, personal flowers typically begin around $1,000 depending on the number in your bridal party.

Special events: From rehearsal dinners with 50 guests to corporate events with 5,000 attendees, the pricing varies widely, but you can be sure we'll help make the event extra special.

What does Boukates provide?

We keep it simple. Boukates primarily provides floral designs, candles and candle holders. We have a unique selection of vases and vessels to enhance your event's overall design aesthetic. Additionally, we can provide ceremony accents such as arbors, chuppahs, vintage fireplace mantles and more.
