Hi ladies! I need some advice. I just got engaged (yay!) but I also just got a new job and have been working ALOT! I am still new and want to make a good impression, which leaves me NO time for planning. I have done some research and called a few florist but the process seems so time consuming and almost impossible with my work schedule. I don’t know how I will have time for all the appointments and seeing samples along with everything else I need to do for the wedding. Is it possible to find centerpieces online? I am looking for a reliable online florist, that has high-end centerpieces and that will be able to show me a sample.
Any advice would be so helpful!! Thank you 🙂

We used Sams Club. Amazing and so inexpensive. Pix in my Recap thread.

futur3mr5: Welcome, Congratulations on your engagement and your new job!
If you are actually getting married a year from February, you have time.
1. Get recommendations from friends, family etc.
2. Get ideas from Floral websites, pinterest, etc
3. If you can’t see florists on your days off, double up appointments, as in make a dentist or Dr. or Tax appt. and on the same day also see if you can schedule a wedding appointment, florist, alterations, get your marriage license back to back.

Do you know that your venue will not have floral? It was included in my sister’s per head cost. My aunt did most of her floral (she wanted to) and I don’t believe my sister used the venue’s at all.

First congragulations on your engagment and your new job!!!
I have only seen online centerpieces that come like a bouquet of flowers and you put in a vase.
Are you looking to buy online so that you dont have to shop around different places for the quotes?
I think I would order online if I could see a sample in person and customize it and if there was a real person I could speak to if I had questions lol
Let us know if you find any place!

I second the wedding planner, it will save you a lot of time.
We didn’t care about flowers much and bought premade bouquets from Costco. We got 20 for $200.

futur3mr5: bloomerent.com, depending on where your wedding is. they match you with another event in your area/weekend to share flowers. since you don’t have time to look they would be able to find people who already listed their wedding centerpieces with them, and if it’s in the same weekned/reasonable distance away, you can opt into those for a fraction of the price and so on. they’d be able to give you better information but its worth looking into if you’re in the nj/ny area (they might also be operating in other areas but im not sure)
