Try a real florist – you’d be surprised what they can get you, and you can just order flowers without them arranging them. I tried to use FiftyFlowers for just my bouquet – wanted pink ranunculus, and they sent me wilted white ones. Even after following the instructions, they didn’t really perk up. After, I serched reviews and that particular flower has a lot of problems from FiftyFlowers – but a lot of other flowers (the hardier ones) got good reviews from people. I ended up getting fabulous flowers from a local florist, and it even cost less (different but even better flowers)

I used them, and LOVED them. They had the flowers I wanted, and at a really good price. They came perfect and lasted a long time!

What kind of flowers are you looking for?

We used fiftyflowers and flowersandfreshness.com for our wedding and I was pretty happy with what we got. We actually had to go to a florist shop for more (I ordered the wrong color roses, my mistake) and I wasn’t as happy with the product.

I used them just for rose petals…and it honestly made me really glad I didn’t do all my flowers myself. The color was a little off, some were already browned when they arrived [Thursday, for Saturday wedding] AND most importantly, despite the website saying “no refrigeration needed” …someone called and told me after they arrived that I SHOULD refrigerate them. My parents ended up making space for them. They were just used for a petal toss but, like I said…full scale DIY flowers I would have been very nervous about…and not had enough refrigeration space for.

My florist was awesome. She was totally willing to work with whatever I wanted to spend, and even suggested upfront what could be reduced in size / type of flower / etc. to reduce cost. I would also recommend at least investigating a few florists…maybe younger / up and coming types.

What about a local farmers market! There always seem to be a couple ladies that bring out some beautiful fresh flowers! Maybe you could get their card and do business with them! =)

you can order bulk flowers through Sam’s Club, and the price isn’t bad. I would advise you talk to their flower person and go directly through them to place your order to make sure they are fresh and ready to go when you need them.

I haven’t ordered from them, or from any online flower supplier, but http://www.wholeblossoms.com lets you choose the specific flower variety you want, not just the colour. Plus, they have Queen Anne’s Lace.

I have used FiftyFlowers and they have always had a great selection of flowers, that other florists can’t get. The flowers you say you want, I know they have, not sure of the seasons, but I have used their garden roses, ranunculus, and dahlias with much sucess! You can also chat in on their live chat to get a 5% discount and they have lots of weekly promotions with 10% off. Just my thoughts, but Fifty Flowers is a reputable company and I would be more nervous going through costco or sams club. Good luck!

I used Fifty Flowers for all our wedding flowers and I would use them again in a second.  Granted, I stuck to pretty common flowers (roses and carnations but a few dahlias, too).  I thought their prices and customer service were fantastic.
