If you’re going for silk flowers, try a major arts & crafts store like Michaels or AC Moore.  The stores in my area are always doing sales on silk flowers, and when they’re not doing sales, they’re handing out 40% off coupons like candy.  I’m doing paper flowers for mine and am using AC Moore for my supplies (foam, tape, vases, etc.).  Every week, I hit the store, use my coupons, and get more coupons at the register for the next week.  Paper flowers are also a good inexpensive option if you’re interested in a DIY project, but they can take a lot of time to put together.

For fresh flowers, try looking at local farmers markets.  You can usually get some good deals on bulk stems as long as they’re in season.

@jseg11:  

I looked at the major craft stores and after viewing the collection, recommend Hobby Lobby more than the others.  They have a MUCH larger selection, especially real touch flowers.  They also always have them 50% off about every other week.  I wouldn’t recommend the “cheaper” silk flowers, as I found them to look extremely fake (think weird leaves and fake dew drops).  I ended up spending $200 during their 50% off sale and got all real touch flowers.  I bought flowers for my bouquet, my MOH’s bouquet, 7 smaller bridesmaid bouquets, my groom’s bout, 14 other bouts, and 6 corsages.  If you don’t have a Hobby Lobby store, check out their real touch selection online.  They offer both pre-made bouquets and single stems for DIY.

I’m ordering my fresh flowers from fiftyflowers.com. I did a test order with them and the quality was great, and they have frequent discounts on popular flowers.
