    I’ve heard rave reviews about Stop & Shop (and other stores) flowers for weddings. I would totally do it. When I buy flowers for my mum or a friend for a special occasion, I usually go to S&S because I love their selection and the quality of their blooms.

    I’ve seen ones in Sam’s that look fabo!  If you could get the store to get exactly what you want and save money, why not?

    I met with the florist at my local Stop and Shop and I am considering going with her – she showed me a few albums full of her work and she has done beautiful stuff.  I don’t know if every grocery store has someone with so much experience (she’s been doing it for almost 20 years) but if you met with a ‘grocery store’ florist you might be pleasantly surprised.  I also met with a full service (for lack of a better word) florist in my town and a lot of his ideas were the same as the florist at Stop and Shop (his quote was actually a bit lower!) so there wasn’t a huge difference in my eyes.  I still haven’t decided what to do yet though…

    We put our own bouquets together, but used flowers that we bulk ordered through a local grocery store.  They were easy to work with, helpful, accomodating AND cheap.  We were able to order the flowers at cost, instead of dealing with a huge mark-up from a florist.  We didn’t use flowers in our decor, so the only ones we bought were for bouquets/bouts–but we spent less than $80!!

    I think grocery stores are an often overlooked source for flowers!

    That is exactly what I am doing!!!!!

    I am working with her she has over 20 years experience the flowers are 50% cheaper than any of the other florists I’ve talked too!

    I am excited that I don’t have to compromise on flowers with my small budget!!!!

    So far I plan on getting my flowers from some combination of Sam’s Club, online stores, and local grocers or flower markets.

    I have actually heard some pretty impressive success stories with people using discount shop flowers. 

    Good luck 🙂
