I am looking to save money on my florals. I live in an expensive area and have gotten quotes of $6k+ for basic flowers- boquets, 22 centerpieces, bouts, etc. Talk about rediculous! I am hoping that there are some online wholesalers that sell centerpieces- does anyone have any ideas! THANKS!

I haven’t heard of any online places to order centerpieces from. Have you tried to negotiate with the place, possibly change for less expensive flowers that have the same feel. Sorry, I’m not much help.

Have you thought about DIY for your centerpieces? There are a lot of places that will sell you bulk flowers online, and you could put them in clear glass vases from Hobby Lobby or Michael’s. I’m doing mine [with pumpkins as vases, for an October wedding] and my total floral cost is under $300- that includes bouquets, bouts, and 17 centerpieces.
Otherwise, I just googled ‘wedding centerpieces’ and this came up: http://www.fiftyflowers.com/flowers/Centerpieces_288.htm

Has anyone ever ordered centerpieces from Teleflora, FTD, or a similar national florist? They have some gorgeous stuff for a good price but I’m wondering about quality and promptness. Thanks!

Costco does roses, $15.99 for two dozen. I’m getting all the flowers for our wedding (boquet, bouts, centerpieces, other decorations) for $400. They’re pretty good roses, too… We just had some in a boquet that lasted over a week while looking new the whole time. Putting them together is easy, too! That $15.99 price is in Seattle, but I imagine they are pretty comparable in other cities.

Check out the wedding flowers from Proflowers.com– they have packages that include centerpieces, bouquets, bouts, etc. The website says that if there are any problems with your flower delivery, they will arrange with a local florist for replacements, as well.
I’ve not used them for wedding flowers, but have been very happy with other arrangements from them over the past couple of years. Just another option, if you don’t want to go the total-DIY route…
