I got my flowers from Sams Club.  My bouquets/bouts came all assembled and ready to go and then I made all the centerpieces.  It was time consuming but not difficult

agree with the PP. it is time consuming but not difficult. I ordered my flowers from sams club as well and through fifthy flowers for one they didn’t have. i had them delivered thursday (you’ll need to cut them if you’re not ordering the prearranged ones and I would people on hand to help cut them), assembled Friday afternoon and delivered to the reception Friday evening for set up.  I had the florist do the boutinerres, bridal bouquet, cake flowers and altar arrangements-basically anything more intricate or needEd the day of.

I had a good friend of mine who’s savvy with flower decor do my wedding. He bought the flowers wholesale through some vendor he knows and I looked for sales and deals at craft stores for the centerpieces that he incorporated the flowers into. SAVED A TON!

soontobemrsgray:  I was going to go with Sams club, but I ended up hiring a florist. I used SAMs club as a negotiating tool…if they couldn’t come in under $700 then I told them I would go the SAMs club route. I ended up getting 7 centerpieces, 6 boutineirs, 1 bride bouquet, 3 bridesmaids bouquets, some petals, and Mercury glass vases for $694.00 ($50 more than I was going to spend at Sams).
