i haven’t done my own, but i have done them for my Future Sister-In-Law. here’s what i learned: 

1) have a whole bunch of friends to help you. and try not to obsess about the little things, like what the curly part of the boutonniere looks like.

2) use hardy flowers so that you can do everything the day before (roses are good).

3) if you have a planner, use her tax ID number to order flowers from a local wholesale flower distributor.

4) if you don’t have a planner, use one of the online wholesale websites. i’ve used http://www.50flowers.com, though i don’t think it’s the cheapest out there.

good luck!

I just ordered samples from the following sites:


2 G roses
tulips, ranunculus 



These are a few sites I would recommend checking out— I’ve filtered out the rediculously expensive ones-




Nu Sabana


John Nuckton (I’m waiting on a price quote from them via email- very small farm, but I’m checking it out nonetheless.

Also I’m checking out the local farmer’s market tomorrow morning. They have one every Wednesday, so I’ll check it out and see what’s available and ask what might be available in 5 weeks… then at least I’d be getting green & local! WHOOP WHOOP!!! Not to mention CHEAP.

I love the local farmer’s market idea!  I’m going to check it out come spring.  Talk about fresh!
