We have a wholesaler in the city, about 10 miles from my home.  They sell at market prices!  =)  It’s where florists get THEIR flowers =)

I got ours from Potomac Wholesale Florist based in DC via a friends recommendation.

I do NOT recommend them. I had to throw out all the flowers I got to make the bouts from. 50% of my white gebera daisies were not usable.

I emailed them after my wedding to make a complaint and I got NO response whatsoever.

P.S. If at all possible I highly recommend getting it from a local wholesaler so you can see what you are getting. I’d imagine there’s got to be a wholesaler district in LA?

I’m thinking of ordering online, not sure if I should use Grower’s Direct or FiftyFlowers.

King Soopers (our local grocery store in Colorado!). They’re super-cheap and, suprisingly excellent quality. While the per-stem price is cheaper from Sam’s Club or some of the online wholesalers, we don’t actually need that many (just bouquets and boutonnieres), so it ends up being half the price to pay a little more per stem, but only get the number we need!
