  • Wedding: October 2014

I am ordering mine from Sam’s club.  I believe it’s called the Memory Collection in pink. There is a massive wholesale flower distributor is SF, about 45 minutes from me, but I don’t want the hassle of me and my moms and sisters making bouquets the night before.  I really like the idea of having a collection and saying “that one has everything I need, I’ll take it”. And with 17 pieces for $325, its a great deal. Plus it had really great reviews on the website and that’s all I needed to hear.

TheLadyA :  My wedding is on October 18th of this year. I had the same problem, but I read all the reviews and several of them said that it was worth it to take a chance on ordering flowers online. Before I stumbled upon this,  flowers weren’t even going to be an option,  so I think this is the perfect solution for me! 

Will definitely share pics afterwards!

I did costco flowers.  We got the bulk (I think it was 80-100 stems) white roses and the bulk baby’s breath.  I used a bouquet of 12 red roses from the local grocery store for the guys’ budonnaires.  The bulk flowers came in cardboard boxes, so all we did was take them out and let them sit in buckets of water until the day of.  Then, my BMs and I sat around the day before the wedding making bouquets.  

I did use a couple purple flowers in my bouquet, however, and I snitched those flowers from one of the church arrangements we got haha!  The total cost of flowers was under $300, and we had tons left over.  

It wasn’t hard.  I practiced before hand and had all the supplies and ideas of how I wanted them to look so we didn’t have to improvise much.  It took us an hour or two, but we weren’t exactly working at lightening speed either.

TheLadyA :  Amy at Flower Moxie helped me, you can the tutorials that she puts out here:

The main thing was she broke it down for me (6 stems of this, 5 stems of that, etc), and that made it easy….from there, she gave me tips like “Group 3-5 stems together then tape it off”, which helped a lot.

 

Also, I had wanted Gardinas and Lilly of the Valley and she talked me out of it, and directed me to more hardy flowers, so that’s why I went with orchids instead.

It really looks harder than it is.  Good luck and thank you!

TheLadyA :  Prepping really took the most time of all of it.  I got my flowers in on Wednesday, prepped them, grouped them like with like, then did my arranging Thursday….and bouts and my bouquet on Friday.

This is my Sams Club bouquet that I made myself! I LOVED the decision to go with them. They were delivered on time and in perfect condition! I spent next to nothing in them. I added the crystals to the center of the lillys myself.

I did Sams Club for baby’s breath, roses and stock, and Fifty Flowers for the garden roses and the skinny greenish, white flowers (can’t remember what they are called). I think I maybe had 5 bad flowers out of hundreds. Would do it again in a heartbeat!
