Hey bees! I am looking for a website to order flowers from for centerpieces. I will only be needing about 30 centerpieces and the quantities from fiftyflowers are just too many. I want to have several types in each centerpiece and I just don’t need that many flowers, though the prices look great. I saw someone on here not long ago saying they ordered from someone else for that very reason but now I can’t find the post. Any suggestions? 🙂

Have you checked Costco? Many many bees have had really great experiences with them.
As far as personal experience, I went to a wedding last year where the bride ordered all of the bouquets and arrangements from Whole Foods, and they did a great job. I was shocked at how cheap the BMs’ bouquets were!

@caiteliz23: I ordered 125 orange roses from Sam’s Club for $105 inclusive of shipping. The roses looked great and were easy to work with. I was able to make my bouquet, 3 BM bouquets, and 10 centerpieces with enough roses left over for bouts if I had wanted to make them.
Flowers looking good the morning after the wedding. My bouquet is on the far left and two centerpieces are in the front.

Not sure where you are from, but you could also use sams club, which is similiar to costco.

@caiteliz23: I’ve also heard good things about Costco–my mom entertains a lot at home, and she orders all of her flowers through them.

I used fifty flowers,the flower exchange and american floral distributors for my DIY bouquets!

I used Global Rose through Amazon for roses. They were AWESOME. They were a bit cheaper than other options, offered free shipping, and best of all were flexible in when they delivered the roses. The quality of flower was MUCH higher than the place where we ordered the ranunculus we used.

We used Whole Blossoms for our ranunculus and the quality was not very high.

@caiteliz23: I was able to order a smaller amount of flowers from my Whole Foods and then I did the arranging. It might be worth pricing out their work if they did your centerpieces too.

I checked out the eBay “mixed lots” of flower bouquets!
They were super affordable, though we ultimately went with grocery store flowers!
