I did just over a week ago.  I bought 300 carnations.  A few of them happened to be broken and the orange carnations didn’t happen to be as big and full as the pink.  However, overall I loved them.  They all looked great and everyone seemed to think I did a great job.

I ordered 400 roses from sams for my March 5 wedding.  I really could not have been happier with them. Just remember you arent a florist and most likely your “vision” is probably pictures and bouquets that floristsput together.  So if you keep your vision realistic you’ll be fine. Our wedding was saturday evening. The roses were shipped to my house Wed and got there about 9 a.m. I had already set up all the buckets (i just got like 10 lowes big buckets) filled them with food and water.  Follow the directions on sams website… and it will be fine.  I saved a ton of money and did my centerpieces and bouquets. Just look on youtube on how to’s..

We did our centierpieces on thursday…. it would have been too crazy busy to do them on friday… we also ended up doing the bouquets but not cutting the ends off until the DAY of the wedding.

I purchased the rubbery de thorners and the metal ones.. i liked the rubbery ones better.

 

 

Hope this helps

My florists were two women who had started a small business and they bought bulk Sams club flowers. They were gorgeous. I guess it just depends on what you can do with them.

I’ve ordered bulk roses and hydrangeas in the past from Costco for an event- not their wedding package, just the flowers.  They were beautiful.  

So beautiful that I am planning on doing the same thing for my wedding centerpieces- I’m having my bouquets professionally done, but am DIYing all the other flowers to match using costco flowers.
