We are planning on doing all gerbera daisies for our wedding and are currently thinking about ordering them online from Fifty Flowers or Sams Club. I was curious what people’s experiences are (expecially with gerbera daisies!!)… do they look fresh? do they stay fresh? I’d love to see photos of gerbera daisies from these bulk sites if possible! Thank you!

Tangentially related but I will be doing my own bouquet and did a trial run with roses from The Flower Exchange. After hydrating the roses were absolutely perfect. I will definitely be using them again for my big day.
My suggestion: if you don’t get a lot of responses, do a trial run yourself (if you can afford it). You’ll know exactly what to expect and be way better equipped for your big day!

A great way to see real pictures and ideas is to check out Fifty Flowers testimonials, cause you can search for specific flowers, so go here: http://www.fiftyflowers.com/testimonials/Testimonials.php
Then to search by flower, where is says “search by flower type”, scroll down to Gerberas, and hit search and it will bring up all the testimonials that use gerberas!
I use things like this a lot to get ideas! Best Wishes!

Thank you so much! I didn’t know people submitted photos in the testimonials… so helpful!

you may not care and Im totally not judging – but I was surprised/bummed to find this out so I figure I should spread the word – unless it specifically states otherwise, those bulk flower sites ship from plantations in South America and are NOT fair trade.

I just ordered ours from Sam’s today! We got 200 roses for bouquets, bouts, and centerpieces and the cost was $160 with shipping and tax. They have more limited types of flowers, but they also have some user photos in the reviews, which helped me make my decision. I couldn’t beat the price (I couldn’t find fakes for that cheap!) so that’s what sold me.
These are the ones we ordered: http://www.samsclub.com/sams/shop/product.jsp?productId=107347′ defer=’defer

I ordered bulk from sams! but we ordered roses though i really wanted gerberas – they just clashed with my dress unfortunately. I was really happy with our sams club flowers – We had ours delievered 2 days before and i almost wish we would have done 3 so they could have been more open, but they were beautiful! we ordered 200 roses for my bouquet, Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets and bouts! here is a pic
