Oh that stinks! Have you thought about DIY- from Costco, or someplace online? That would definitely be within your budget

@liabttrfly:  You were so smart to pay with a credit card!

Sorry to hear that happened! I don’t have any experiences with florists around SoCal. Our wedding will be in MN, so I went with one there. If you are okay with silk flowers, you could check Michaels or Jo-Ann Fabrics and DIY.

@liabttrfly:  So sorry you are going through this.  Good luck and I hope you get a refund from your credit card. 🙂

Also, I’m from the OC/LA area; PM me if you still need a florist.  I’m in the process of looking for some and I’ve found some good ones.

I would enlist the help of some creative friends and do it! I know it’s quite the project, and I don’t know what kind of price ranges they have in SoCal for florists…but it almost seems unlikely you can find one for that price at this close a time! Good luck to you, I hope it works out wonderfully!

I Agree with AndIlene,


You Can get bulk Flowers From Sam’s And Costco and arrange them Yourself.


Good LUck

From Long Island, but I know my sister in law was on a tight budget when she was planning her wedding. They went to a local stop and shop and were able to get a great deal, so maybe check out a grocery store?

Sorry you’re going through this, hopefully you find a solution!

Mine is French Buckets, i mean my budget was higher then yours was but I’m getting alot for what i’m paying and she seemed really reasonable and willing to work with any budget. Other wise i would say hit up some friends and hit the flower district in Downtown. And i’m really sorry that this happened to you.

If you haven’t found anyone yet, check out Kathleen Castagnoli at Kat’s Creations… She was really good about working with my budget…
