I bought my flowers from Costco and made 4 bouquets, 4 corsages, and 10 centerpieces for about $400. They also have bouquets already made that you can order

https://globalrose.com/ that’s where I’m ordering from. I got 60 babysbreath, 50 pink rose stems, and 100 mix n match carnations for $195, plus 3% off that using a promotional code. They get good reviews too. I researched flowers for months, this was the best deal for my needs. I got a great deal on my bouquets, boutonneires, and corsages at a local florist. So you might check them out also! It’s a frustrating job looking for good deals on flowers! Most places quoted me around $1,200 for the flowers I got for $500, at global rose and local  florist. Crazy!!

khudg:  nope, not talented- flowers shoved into a floral foam ball in a tall vase! I could never make oragami flowers out of paper like you did.

if you end up using real flowers- I got the hydrangeas from sam’s (price and quality reviews), roses from sam’s (price), and then the other items came from blooms by the box and fifty flowers.

I did a trial run on my center pieces today. I’m pretty excited about how it turned out!

I purchased roses from Costco for DIY centerpieces.  I preordered the flowers a few months in advance, gave them the quantity and general color family that I needed, and then picked them up three days before the wedding to start arranging.

I’m buying flowers wholesale for our engagement party centerpieces,  but I will be depending on a professional for our wedding.

I did mine. I ordered the flowers from a local shop and used vases from Walmart. It would have been a little cheaper to get the flowers from Costco or something but I wanted to use someone local. We received a lot of compliments on them.

I bought bulk flowers from Sam’s Club and MoxieFlowers (for accent flowers), and I think they turned out great! I had a simple vision: 1 bridal bouquet, 6 bridesmaids, 1 flower girl bouquet, 15 bouts, and 4 roses for mothers/grandmothers, and leftover flowers went to bud vases and decorating the cake. I think I ordered $350 worth of flowers, and I had plenty left over. As long as you have a vision, I think it’s completely doable and it may seem easier than you think! Granted, I was pretty easy-going about my flowers. I just wanted live ones, and as long as they didn’t look too sloppy, I was happy.
