Although I haven’t tried either, I would think that Whole Foods flowers may still be a bit cheaper than going to a florist. I would try Whole Foods flowers first. I’ve been hearing that their prices are very very reasonable, and this is not for your actual wedding day so it will cost less! Let me know what you find out!

Have you had this already?  You can always get good roses at Safeway, $10/dozen, and if you mix them with alstromeria, you can get 8 centerpieces together for less than $60.

You can buy flowers in bulk from Costco and have them delivered to you.

I’d suggest the costco route, or harris teeter.  They always have great bunches of blooms with 4-6 per bunch for $4.00 so they are pretty reasonable, but it depends on the feel you’re going for- costco is always a very affordable option so that might make the most sense.

Whatever you do, don’t use Karin’s Florist in Vienna, VA. I had my wedding at 2941 and Karin’s is a recommended vendor. They messed up my flowers– wrong color.

Service and food was amazing! If possible try to get the Grilled Cheese hors’d that they have. They were so yummy. I have many ruined Wedding Party photos because the tray kept passing right behind my pro photographer and their eyes were following the tray and not looking at the photographer. 🙂

I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful time!
