I’m on a budget, and I want to get a good deal on flowers. I want to buy a bulk or pack of flowers I can arrange myself. I found this website:
http://www.bloomsbythebox.com/pub/showvariety.cfm?categoryid=138&#_Trendy DIY Wedding Flower Packs
Are these good prices, or does anyone know of any better sites to get flowers in bulk or in packs?
I’m looking to keep my flower budget around or under $300-400. And the cheaper, the better.

I am planning on using BloomsByTheBox.com for my flowers, too. Trying to stick to a budget of around $500. It seems like a good deal, and that you’d get a fairly good amount of flowers for what you’re paying. I guess you just have to go into it knowing two things: The flowers come in untrimmed and with thorns, which could mean a fair amount of work depending on the flowers you purchase… And, you have to trust (hope? pray? beg?) that they arrive on your doorstep on time and alive!
Wish I had more advice, but my wedding isn’t until April. Hopefully some more Bees will have experiences to add!

I’m not sure what flowers you’re looking for exactly, but I’ll be using GlobalRose.com. They have the roses I want and they’re cheaper than anywhere else for them.

I think you could get a better deal on fiftyflowers.com. I’ve used them for carnations for my sorority during rush, and they were fantastic 🙂

I used fiftyflowers and Costco. My total cost was $320, I can post pics if you’d like.

@chic_and_fabulous: I only know of them because of the Bee! So happy I found them. My roses will be $118 instead of the $180 that FiftyFlowers wants.
