One of my friends a year ago used a grocery store florist. No one knwe they looked stinking gorgeous and she saved a ton of money. I think it’s smart if it works for your wedding. Honestly you carry it down an aisle take pictures with it and then it sits at a table all night.

It sounds like you got an awesome deal!

I didn’t use a grocery store but after seeing the arrangements at Central Market, I kind of wish that I had explored those options. Texas brides–definitely look into Central Market!

I was thinking of going to a farmers market for mine 🙂 We saw the most BEAUTIFUL sunflowers for sale this August! And just carrying a handful of those would suit our whole thing perfectly

Which grocery store did you use?  I am trying to find all options. I only need a bridal bouquet and a bout. but these things are pricy!

Thanks (in advance) for the advice!

I did that for a bridal shower that I threw for centerpieces. I just bought whatever pretty flowers they had that day and put them in vases. Everyone loved them and the whole thing cost $50. I think if you aren’t set on specific flowers, it’s really the way to go.

Using a grocery store florist is our back up if our own flowers don’t come through (I am growing them) or are “out of season” (though they typically bloom from mid june through august, you never know) or if the local farmers market doesn’t have what we want.

As long as the prices are competitive, the florist good/helpful & you like the finished product it can be a great option on the cheap side.

Our grocery store florist (Giant Eagle up here in OH) has a brochure that says they can make a hand-tied rose bouquet for $20. Not bad. I am still thinking about DIYing from wholesale flowers just because I’m kind of a control freak…
