Belle, I totally agree!  I think grocery stores are underrated as far as flowers go.  I know we’re DIYing flowers and we’ve ordered all the flowers we need for the wedding for under $120 through our local grocery store.  We’re just getting the flowers and putting them together into bouquets ourseleves, but they had a lot of options for doing arrangements at the store.  They were flexible and willing to help us out with selections and availability.  Anyone on a budget should check this option out! 🙂

I get a lot of help at Kroger, too. I also like their cake designs — not just sheet cakes!

I am with you , I am ordering 200 red roses from my grocery store! it comes to 0.65 a stem, a florist charges $3/stem! 

I’m doing my own, I bought glass vases from walmart and doing a low dome of roses at 15 roses per vase and doing my own bouquet 24 roses and 12 each for each BM; it’ll come to $150 for flowers and they’re real! plus, I can do it whenever I want my grocery store man will refrigerate it and I can wake up whenever I want and walk 1/2 block to pick it up ( I live in NYC-we dont drive here) because it’s open 24 hours a day. how convenient is that!

 

$150 as opposed to $2000-3000 for a florist hmmm

I used to do the flowers for a Sam’s club.  One thing to ask is when does your shipment actually arrive in the store.  The closer to your wedding day the better.  You don’t want your flowers coming in on Tuesday or Wednesday and sitting in the cooler till you get Friday.  Some chains get seveal deliveries a week and others only get one.  Just ask so you know.  When I worked for Sam’s I always tried to delay the wedding flowers till the last truck of the week so they were fresher.
