We’re considering DIYing our centerpieces and other decorations. I’ve read all hte posts about the wholesale online florists, but haven’t found one yet that will let me order just a small amount of flowers so I can do a trial. Does anyone know of one that will allow that? Or other options?

What types of flowers are you using? Have you tried Sams Club, Costco, or BJ’s? They are very reasonable and have a good selection on site and online, depending on the type of flower. I recently did a wedding with ivory roses for a wedding party of 12 and a large bridal bouquet for under $100 in flowers, whirch included rose petels for the ceremony and reception. http://www.platinumweddingsflorida.com

I think you should hit up sams or bjs and buy a few arrangements and make your own. I am actually DIYing my own flowers, I spoke with my local florist, just to see if she would be open with ordering my flowers for me. She was more than happy to-as long as she makes a tiny profit. Paying an extra 25 bucks for my DIY flowers is worth it to me, in the off chance they get lost, are wilted, etc. She said she would take care of any problems if they should arise! Also, this means I can pick them up the day before or the morning of the wedding, and not have to have a garage full of flowers for a few days! 🙂

i’M diy-ing from an order from my local florist, then getting them in bulk from costco (and from the farmer’s market)
I’ll probably have her do bouts and corsages, so it’s a win-win for her, and i get to play around with the centerpieces too.

Proflowers dot com has a great selection of wedding flowers at a good price. I had a friend use them when she had a “scheduled elopement” at a mountain chalet in Gatlinburg a year ago and they were very pretty and reasonable.
