Have you looked at fiftyflowers.com yet? It seems like for $500 on their site you could buy a lot of flowers and have some peace of mind knowing what will be available on the day of your wedding. A friend of mine used them and was super impressed with the quality. I’m planning to use them for our wedding.
I hear ya on the wtf, why have an opinion now issue, I’ve had some crazy similar moments lately!

I love the yellow. I don’t think it’s risky at all! But just so you know, check out Sams.com. You can order flowers there at a great price. 125 stems (roses) for $80. They have a great assortment of colors–and they definitely have yellow roses. They sell other flowers as well. Just thought it was worth mentioning.

why don’t you ask your groery store to order yellow and white flowers for you?
I did the same I asked my corner grocer to order 200 for me at 0.65 each, it will come down to about 150-200 for my flowers 🙂

i think it sounds great!!! and a lovely way to get them involved…also they might want to check out the Costco’s, Sam’s Clubs, and BJ’s … they usually have really good prices on their flowers and good varieties!! good luck and keep us posted with what they come up with!!

Thanks everyone! The only reason I’m not ordering them online is I don’t think there will be anyone at my house to sign for them and get them in water. I would totally order them online if I new they wouldn’t die!

Your easist bet will prob be to order them online, and to ensure that someone is home, you can check the tracking number and insist on at least one person being home when they are expecting to arrive. Although this seems difficult, I think it wil be less stressful then you trying to go out and buy flowers yourself (since your Fiance is against your moms doing it) so actually getting the flowers will be your real obstacle.
Don’t stress about making the boots & bouquets, they will be easy! And you can include your mom & fmil in this hands on project. It will be less stressful because they will be able to sit, chat, and create boquets all in a comfortable & relaxed setting.
Good luck to you!
