I’ve been looking at flowers. I want simple bouquets of soft pink roses with a few white ones. The Costco wedding rose package looks perfect ,with a few substitutes (allowed per website) and a wrist corsage for mob. And the price is 30-65% less than local florists.
But… I am concerned about ordering them as a shipment like a pair of shoes. Does anyone have any recent experience with ordering wedding flowers from Costco that they would be willing to share.

I also going the DIY flower route, but using bloomsbythebox.com. They have a pretty helpful guide for what to expect when you get your flowers in the mail: http://www.bloomsbythebox.com/pub/unpacking-and-preparing-fresh-flowers.cfm
Sorry I can’t be a help with Costco flowers specifically, but hopefully that helps a little!

Thank you. The site looks fabulous for someone with diy skills.
It is very much beyond my artistic and craft abilities. The Costco flowers are shipped already assembled. (Nobody, but nobody, wants me anywhere near a knife – especially a day or two before my wedding.)

you might want to try bloominous.com as well. They have different options and require the same amount of diy skill as Costco.
I’m Talking with them now and the customization without the Costco membership is pretty nice.

We did the Costco flowers online (different from in store florist). I was very happy with them. They arrived on Wednesday and still looked great Saturday for the wedding.
I was able to adjust the package and exchanged center pieces for more bridesmaid’s bouquets.
Ordering was more complicated than I expected. I suggest ordering at least 30 days before the wedding.
FYI. I did not need to provide my member number to order.

Thank you for sharing! I was just toying with the idea of going to Costco route 🙂
