I can't see the pic. But I had them in my bouquet and I don't think it made the cost go out very much. Sorry, I'm not too much help!

This same site has tips on how to use these flowers in a budget-friendly way:

They seem to run on the "quite pricey" side depending on how many you want to incorporate: http://www.fiftyflowers.com/product/Choose-Your-Own-Phalaenopsis-Orchids_28.htm


Edited: seems like the other gals have found that they weren't too bad! :)

They weren't terribly expensive when I looked at my local florist back in September.

Maybe ask Par228 how much her CPs were each, because they were quite similar to those.  I don't really know, but I would think those would be around $150 per CP.

I am having similar phalanopsis orchid CP's, my inspiration is also from Par228's bio. My florist is charging me $100 per CP. Hope that helps!

Thanks BayBride- I'm getting excited just thinking about them! I just wanted a heads up before I talked to my florist. I didn't want to faint when I saw a quote!

I love those flowers. I spoke with a florist yesterday and she mentioned those were 1 of the most expensive flowers out there. But I guess it all depends on who you talk to.

Good luck and keep us posted on the price!

I was looking through some older posts & some PW florists said orchids run ~$10/piece.  I am sure the season & your location play a big role too.  I saw in a post that Par spent $3800 on her florals for 120 guests & she had these tall ones on just half the tables.  Sparkle spent ~$7800 for all her flowers & had a lot of orchids.  I am hoping for you that you hear a price you are comfortable with, but I guess just be prepared for higher, KWIM?  It seems like everything wedding related costs more than you expect :)  Let us know how it goes!
