With most flowers being grown in climate controlled greenhouses, you can get just about anything any time of year.

I just purchased some lovely Greenhouse grown Tulips from my local grocery store. They were only $1 a piece. I’m sure you can find some in November as well!

Girl you can have just about anything you want, it may cost you but you can get it. Tulips are beautiful and if I were you I would just start calling around to your florists. Did you think about going faux with your flowers? You can get really realistic bouquets with out the cost.

The Grower’s Box offers "Ice Tulips" (greenhouse tulips) for wholesale prices.  I’m using them for my wedding in July.  My florist was like "Tulips in July??  Where would I get those??"  I was happy to direct her to my fave flower source.  There are other online wholesalers who sell tulips as well.

You can get tulips any time of year, the price does vary though.  At http://www.fiftyflowers.com they are reasonably priced and they have a huge selection of colors. Another person mentioned growers box- they too have a great selection.

I am also in love with tulips.  My florist said she is willing to incorporate tulips in my flowers but said that they are one of the most likely flowers to not withstand the wedding and reception without wilting.  So I would just keep that in mind!

While I agree that you can pretty much get any flower at any time of the year, don’t you think that tulips will look silly in November?  Maybe its just me being a little on the traditional side, but I feel like sticking with flowers that are typical for a specific seaon is best.  But if that’s what you love and you can get them for a great price – go for it!

What colors are you doing?  At fifty flowers they have some beautiful parrot tulips and a roccoco tulip that is a a gorgeous deep red. I think tulips wouldn’t look silly in november if you were doing them in fall colors.
