Yes, you can order bulk flowers online.  Have you considered doing faux/silk flowers for the guys’ bouts?  That’s what we did.  It meant you could do them ahead of them, and they lasted longer on the wedding day.  You should also check with some of your smaller local flower shops, they may be able to supple rose petals cheaper than you would pay online plus shipping.  Also check into using Costco.  And for your BMs, consider flowers that don’t require a lot and are easy to wrap like calla lilies or one large bloom of some kind. Good luck.

I am DIYing the flowers for the bridal party. We ordered the flowers from fiftyflowers.com. I ordered the greenery for both the bouquets and greenery from a local florist shop b/c I was able to only order the amount I needed. The minimum orders on fiftyflowers.com was WAY more than I needed.

We are using yellow spider mums and aspidistra for the bridal bouquet with plain spider mum bouquets for the BMs. The bouts will be spider mums and grape leaves.

The trial run took 24 spider mums to get a good size for the bridal bouquet. I plan to use about 15 for each Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquet.

These are my inspiration photos:

For bridal bouquet and bouts (although the bouquet will be larger)

for the BMs
