Hello! I’m getting married next year in an outdoor ceremony at Brookfield Zoo in IL. I don’t have the slightest clue, but was wondering roughly how much gerbera daisies run? There will be a bridal bouquet, 8 bridesmaids’ bouquets, and 8 men’s boutineers would go. Any advice or pictures would be much appreciated! I’m going for the more simple look (hand-tied stems.) Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since you are getting married in a year, you could check to see if there are any local farms or farmer’s markets that have them where you are right now, and would they have them for you next year. I’ve read bees have had good luck with FiftyFlowers, you can check here: (They look like they have both mini and standard sizes.)
I know others have suggested Sams or Costco, but I don’t know if I’d order from them for Wedding Flowers.

I will probably be ordering from fiftyflowers.com
I’m using Gerbera Daisies myself =)

I ordered 100 yellow gerbera daisies from Sam’s for my wedding last year. If I remember right, the gerberas only cost about $75 – it was the calla lillies and hydrangea for my bouquet (that I just HAD to HAVE 😉 that were so expensive. I highly recommend ordering bulk flowers from Sam’s or Costo, they were fresh, beautiful, well-packaged and VERY on time. I ordered them about 3-4 months before the wedding and scheduled to have them delivered the Thursday before my Saturday wedding. We DIY’ed all my flowers, and they turned out pretty gorgeous, if you ask me! 🙂

I’m doing Gerbera’s too…the ones I priced were around $3 a stem. You may want to check growersbox.com, especially if you are buying bulk…they are wonderful
