A friend of mine used Costco for ALL her wedding flowers, and they were beautiful! The shipping box they come in is quite amazing, too! They came a couple of days before the wedding and were kept in an air conditioned room (with a mini fridge for the boutteniers) and they lasted through a long wedding day in the August heat.

Just one warning, though… they are being shipped, and there were a few minor damages (one or two flower heads came off, etc.) If you don’t have someone crafty in your wedding party who can fix things, or you’re a total perfectionist, I don’t think Costco would be the right way to go.

I looked into Costco, but went with Blooms by the Box.  They offer centerpieces and have much more variety and are cheaper than Costco.  I didn’t get centerpieces, but I ordered all the flowers for my wedding (I DIYed the bouquets, bouts, and church flowers) and was really happy with them.  Also, they offer free shipping to pretty much everywhere in the US.

I posted about the flowers (with pictures) on this thread:

A good friend of mine who got married this summer got all her flowers from Costco.  They turned out great.  If you pick your flowers up at the store you can make sure none are damaged – if you have them delivered to you I would order a few more than you absolutely need, because there’s really nothing they can do to make sure that every bloom gets to you in perfect condition. She picked hers up at the store, and they replaced any damaged ones right there.  They were gorgeous.

Ooo I was wondering about this, too. It’s early for me, but this is good to know.

The Costco by me in NJ does not have pickup. The in store flowers are handled by a different company and the prices are much more expensive then Costco online.

I wanted to comment on something above, Costco online is MUCH cheaper then BloomsbytheBox, almost 2/3 cheaper actually. Blooms does have better variety, but look at this comparison, Costco online sells 80 stems of gerbers for $90. Blooms charges $2.57/stem.

I did my trial with Blooms and they were totally decent, but I will save a boat load by ordering my gerbers and daisies from Costco. I’m just a little worried to jump ship since I didn’t do a trial with them.

Does anyone have any experience with Costco online flower delivery?

I used them for my sister’s shower this past weekend. I posted about them on my blog. I even have pictures of how they look when shipped:

People asked where/who did the florals. They were a huge hit. I would highly recommend them. Just make sure you get them 2 days prior to your event to allow them to open up.

yes I heard of great things about costco for all you budget oriented bridesmaid

 

I live in the city

I’m doing the next best thing and ordering from my corner grocer; at $0.70 a head I’ll be spending about $160 for all my centerpieces, bouqtsst and boutenierre’s

 

hurray for DIY and saving money!
