If I’m ordering my flowers to put together before my wedding day myself, should I schedule them to be delivered the day before the wedding or two days?
And when should I place my order?
Any helpful advice about DIYing wedding flowers would be appreciated! Thanks in advance, Bees!

We got married on Saturday night and ordered our bulk roses from Sam’s to be delivered on Thursday–it worked out great, especially because they needed to open up a bit (our DOC kept them in water). I found info on the Sam’s Club website for how early to place orders–I think I did it a few weeks in advance.

I am doing my own flowers as well. I did a test run to find out this answer and I think for a Saturday wedding, you should be fine with having them delivered on Thursday. Like MaraBeth said, they will need to open a little bit. Good luck!!

I’m having mine delivered the thursday before. I read the reviews online and they say the flowers need a couple days to heal from the trek to your place. I am having mine delived on May 31st I can let you know how it goes. Also getting mine from sams.

Thank you! I’d love to read about your diy experience. Post pictures ! 🙂 Also, a test run is a wonderful idea. I’ll wait to do the test run until a holiday then I’ll pass my beautiful product out.

Here is my test bouquet. It is a little smaller than I would like (only 22 stems). I think I will make my final bouquet 36 stems.
