I ordered mine bulk from Whole Foods wedding flower section. They are affordable (surprisingly), fresh and arrived great. You can WF near your wedding site and ask their flower department for quote.

I haven’t done this yet, but we will be ordering in bulk from Costco! I have heard great things, but many people recommend picking them up in store instead of having them delivered, as couriers like UPS do not care that they are flowers and they can often arrive wilted/crushed.

I ordered mine from fiftyflowers.com and bought enough garden roses and Eucalyptus for 3 bouquets, 6 boutonierres, and 15 small centerpieces for $319! A friend of mine whose father does wedding photography swears by them. Apparently there was some issue with the original florist from her brother’s wedding, so she contacted Fifty Flowers about a week before the wedding. They emergency-shipped the flowers she needed from Brazil, and she said that the flowers were gorgeous.

sapphire27 :  We’re doing the same thing and having them delivered to the store instead of our house.  The Costco employees were very helpful and accomodating.  We’re picking them up on Thursday 4/27 for our Saturday 4/29 wedding, which stresses me out a bit, but my sister is the one in charge of all of it (and making our centerpieces!) and she thinks it will be fine.

Not sure of your budget or craftiness with arrangements (I am SO not and had a florist), but Bouqs has some very pretty DIY and pre-packaged flower bundles. Likely more than just going to buy yourself but cheaper than a full on florist. I’ve received them as bouquets and love them, and they are farm direct.
