I was going to do my own flowers, bouts., corsages, bouquets. I’m not sure where to get my flowers. I see all these websites with some great deals but I’m afraid to buy my flowers online! Has anyone done this and if so what sites have the best reputations? Thanks!!!

You should look in your area for where the florists get their flowers. I know in the STL city there’s a street with all the wholesale flower shops (some only sell to florists though). But Walter Knoll is there and we’re getting ours through them.
As for online, Sams Club has good prices, but I prefer wholeblossoms.com for the selection and price point.

I always recommend bloomsbythebox.com . If you’re in PA they have free shipping and they have a lot lower number of flowers they require you to order than other online sites. Plus, they have great customer service and will tell you in detail how to care for the flowers, and I would call them and talk to them before you order – ask how many days before you should order especially, since some come as buds and need a day or two to open. Also, as long as you give them a couple weeks notice they can get you in other flowers if you don’t see what you want online.

I ordered my flowers in bulk from Costco.com and they were beautiful. I got $150 sunflowers and 100 yellow roses.
I also went to a local floral wholesaler that was open to the public in my area to get greenery and some other flowers for the bouquets and bouts. I found that by just googling “maryland flower wholesalers” or something, so it is definietly worth looking into. The prices were MUCH less expensive than ordering through a florist.
