I plan on ordering sunflowers and some kind of white flowers and green filler from Sam’s Club. They are unbelievable affordable! I a bit afraid of the logistics of storing the flowers, but we’ll figure it out.
Has anyone ordered from Sam’s? What kind of condition were the flowers in? I’m thinking I should order quite a few more than I think I’ll need just to make sure…..
I’m nervous!! Any input would be sooo appreciated!

I used Sam’s and it was beyond perfect! I ordered roses, and followed what the reviewers said on their website to have them delivered Wed rather than Thurs. I had 120 stems, and used five 10 gallon buckets from Home Depot to store them in the dark air conditioned closet. They looked a little sad on Wed and even part of Thurs, but Saturday they were pure perfection.
A note though: they don’t de-thorn or anything, so be prepared to do that. I recommend it 100% though.

I ordered hydrangeas and roses from Sam’s and they were great. The hydrangeas looked fabulous as soon as I put them in water. Out of 40, about 4 of them died over the course of the two days before the wedding (so take into account buying some extras). The roses arrived looking pretty sad, but after a few hours of being in water, they perked right up. My flowers turned out gorgeous. I was so proud of them! I would highly recommend them.

@DIYdisaster: A friend of mine said that she got her flowers from Sam’s Club. She said it was the best wedding-related decission she ever made… they were in good condition and she saved a bundle. 🙂 I hope that helps!

We did use Sam’s for the June wedding (son’s) and the girls arranged their flowers as a team- calla lillies, yellow tulips, baby’s breath, blue delphinium- the arrangements came out very nice.

I ordered flowers from Sams for an event (not my wedding). We ordered calla lilies. I definitely agree that you need to have them in water a couple days before to open them up. The facility actually let us have them delivered there and stored in their refrigerator.
I must admit, we did not follow instructions and put them in buckets before the event. But closed callas did not look too bad in slim tall vases.
I would not hesitate to order flowers from Sam’s. I just have not decided on centerpieces yet. Just make sure you have somewhere to store them, friends to help and order sturdy, less delicate flowers.
