This thread piqued my interest. I’m new to wedding planning.

How does ordering from Sams work? Are you doing the arrangements yourself? Does Costco do this too?

Thanks!

Ok – I’m commenting to follow. I’m dealing with this right now. I’m an end-of-September bride, but to order from Sam’s I have to select a delivery date, and the last delivery dates are the end of August. Does this mean that you can’t order flowers from Sam’s more than a month out? Will I need to wait until to end of August to order my flowers for my September wedding? Bumping and following!

I was thinking of using Costco. Wondering how early I can arrange bouquets for the tables. Is the day before ok? If we then put them in a walk-in fridge on site?

Our flowers were done by Sam’s. We ordered a month in advance,  and specified they be delivered two days before the wedding.  They were perfection.

My cousin used the Sam’s prearranged flowers for her wedding last year and I am planning on using them for my wedding in September. They turned out absolutely beautiful for her wedding. She had them delivered two days beforehand to allow for blooming and kept them in the fridge. You can only order about a month in advance. I will be ordering for my september 19th date on August 20th. I’m getting bulk mini carnations as well as a prearranged pack of bouquets.

jshells90:  I would contact them and ask. They will tell you when they think the orders should be in place. I think they let you book it in advance as well so they can ensure that they will have everything you need.

My cousin ordered this package: samsclub.com/ip/wedding-collection-bright-17-pc-/prod1480822

Here is a picture of the bouquets in action. They were just the right size. 

I’m going with this package: 

samsclub.com/ip/wedding-collection-earth-tone-17-pc-/prod1720318

I almost went with the sunflowers but decided they didn’t match with anything else.

I suggest ordering as soon as you know what you want.

I did Costco Online, not Sam’s club. The Costco ordering process was more complex than I expected, so I wish I had ordered earlier.  (FYI – I did substitutions.) The flowers arrived Wed for a Sat wedding. I added water and kept them in a cool basement. They looked great at the wedding and for about 4 days after.
