A bunch of my friends have used Whole foods in West Vancouver. The quality seems great and they say the prices are much better than elsewhere. I am waiting to get my quote back, but I will likely go with them. I don’t think they deliver, though.

I just got my quote back from Whole foods. They said that it’s a bit high since the colour of roses I picked is a bit unusual. If I pick a more common shade of pink the price might go down.

I was told it will be around $450 for the follows:

1 bride bouquet raspeberry pink roses, hand tied, with greens

3 bridesmaids bouquets similar, but scaled down from mine

3 corsages

7 boutineres

I think in general, that’s pretty reasonable, but at the same time I’m having a hard time thinking about spending $500 for something which will only last a day.

You may want to cross post this to the Vancouver board so that more local people see it.

I got my florist to do a sold red rose bridal boquet, 4 for the girls about 9 bouts and two large hanging pomadiers, 4 med and 3 small as well as two centerpieces for 800.00.

 

I bet i could get your quote in half!

whole foods eh? Is there any place people can think of that would be closer to north vancouver. It seems like an awfully long way to drive for flowers…

I need 1 bridal bouquet, 2 bridesmaids bouquets, about 7 bouts and 3 corsages i think… plus maybe 2 pomanders for the flower girls… and then I would have liked flower centerpieces too

Do you think I can get all that for around (or under) $500?

There is a Whole Foods at Park Royal in West Vancouver- still on the North Shore.

Also check out prices at The Flower Factory on Main St. I haven’t used them for a wedding but I buy flowers for gifts there all the time. Prices are very reasonable for beautiful bouquets.

I found an even better deal and wanted to pass the info along in case anyone can use it!

I will be using May’s flowers in the Lonsdale Quay. May and her mom have been incredibly helpful, had many great ideas and tips, and am I was so impressed with the prices.

Here is what I am getting:

1 bride bouquet 18 hot pink roses, hand tied, with greens

3 bridesmaids bouquets with 9 hot pink edged roses

3 single rose corsages

7 single rose boutineres

all for $265+ tax for pick up. I was very impressed! Smile
