Hi everyone. I have about 3 1/2 months till my wedding and I still haven’t gotten my florist. I’m sort of freaking out here. I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions for some florists that were affordably priced and also did a good job in the MD/VA/DC area? Thanks!

I’ve gotten quotes from Bouquets by Bell and Divine Designs & Events – they’re both reasonably priced and have great reviews online.

I went to Michaels and bought silk flowers for our bouqets and bouts. For 5 bouquets and 10 bouts so far, I’m at about $50 and they look great and will last forever. Plus you can do them beforehand and store them til you need them.
Michael’s is currently having 50% off all flowers til 3/14. I"m going back tomorrow to stock up on the rest of my flowers

We used Flowers by Judy. She was great and her prices were very reasonable.

We used Potomac Flower, which is a flower warehouse, so my girlfriends and I did the corsages, bouquets, and boutonnieres ourselves using the directions found online (diybride had good directions). It turned out to be rather easy, and the flowers were by far cheaper than anywhere else I could find.
In retrospect, I might have bought the boutonnieres and maybe the corsages from a regular florist, since they’re not particularly expensive and were the most time-consuming. For a bouquet, though, DIY can be very simple and far cheaper. The white callas we used for the bridesmaids were $17/bunch of 10, and the large red callas for my bouquet were $35/bunch of 10.
