I am having a very small wedding in October, and the only flowers I will be purchasing are for a bouquet for me. I would love to incorporate dark blue, or navy flowers, but I’m flexible. I’ve also thought about doing yellow flowers for my bouquet. Anyway, it seems that a lot of bouquets in the NYC area are $150 and more. I’d really rather spend less than $100. Can anyone recommend a flower shop for me? I’ve looked at websites like FTD, and their stuff is okay, but not ideal… Thanks so much for your input!

that sounds in line with the quotes i got. my bouquet is about 125 but it may be b/c i’m getting other flowers with it and he’s located an hour away. i’m guessing you don’t want to travel an hour to pick up a bouquet. try <span style=”color: #008000;”>http://www.scottsflowersnyc.com – ask for paul. i really enjoyed meeting him. he has great ideas. unfortunately i had to pick another florist for budget reasons…. sigh!
<span style=”color: #008000;”>good luck!

You can check out Flowers by Emil. CArmine, the owner, really works with yiour budget. Depending on what you want, he could probably do something under $100

Have you checked ou the flower district in manhattan? You should absolutely be able to spend less than $100. If you purchase the day before, make your bouquet, and then put ends in water and in fridge until the next day.
There is a spray you can use to keep the flowers looking fresh….
Send me a message if you need more help/instruction.

If you are only getting flowers for yourself (no decor or bridesmaids) I would check out flower stores. We looked at Flowers of NYC (1st Avenue b/w 84th and 85th Street) and they were very reasonable and nice to deal with. They quoted around $70 for bridesmaids bouquet which might be what you are looking for ( esp if you don’t want large bouquet). I would give them a call.
