What sort of flowers are you looking at? Anything that isn’t grown locally is going to cost more because of the Island’s location. So if you are after roses then they will be expensive but if you want frangipanis then they will be cheaper because they grow locally.

Mrs.DK:  I think you might be in for a hefty bill if those are the flowers you want. They will more than likely have to be flown in which adds to the cost. Things in Hawaii are more expensive in general than mainland USA due to this fact. Have you considered look at different flowers or talking to a florist and asking for local flowers which look similar?

Mrs.DK:  most will have roses but if you want a specific colour or a specific flower you will probably have to order them which again will probably cost more as a special order. This is because they will be only ordering enough for you rather than a bulk order.

If you want to go the silk flowers route, I ordered my bridal and bridesmaids bouquets from Morgann Hill Designs on etsy (http://www.etsy.com/au/shop/braggingbags) and I ordered silk flowers online to make bouttonierres and centrepieces. I knew the bouquets would be photographed in more detail so I didn’t mind spending a bit extra on those. Some of her bouquets might fit in with your vision (for some reason her flowers and bouquets tab has nothing under it, but if you search her store for ‘bouquet’ you can see the different varieties.) It probably wouldn’t be cost effective to use this store for all of your flowers.

We stayed at Honua Kai when we were there in Maui for our wedding!

Who quoted you that price? That’s pretty outrageous! I’ve heard a lot of people go to Whole Foods or Costco for flowers. Also check out Atrium Design Works (they are a wholesale supplier). My day of coordinator also does florals. Her name is Melissa and her business is called Opihi Love. She was really reasonable. 🙂

Mrs.DK:  Oh whew! That’s much better! Costco is right by the airport and I think Whole Foods is also by the aiport, too. Honua Kai is great!! We had an amazing stay there.
