Hi everyone,

So, here is another pricing question. I have seen that some CCers have a charge per GP flower while others don't charge extra. I haven't been charging anything extra for the flowers, but am thinking that I should be (now that I am getting more wedding orders and am finding the time and cost of materials is steadily increasing). For those of you who charge, would you mind sharing your cost per flower? I get alot of requests for roses, callas, gerberas and orchids along with leafwork and filler flowers. Thanks everyone for reading.

I don't charge per flower, but rather my per-slice charge increases based on the overall intricacy of the design. This would include handmade flowers, how many, what type, etc.

when I took Nick Lodges class, he said to charge the same as a real flower, in a high quality flower. Like not Costco prices, but good florist prices. He also had a list of expected prices of the gumpaste flowers that we made in class. I don't know where my list is but maybe someone else still has theirs. I do remember he said to charge $7 for a calla. These were good size callas.
