I don’t have experience (yet), but I will in about a month!  The flowers in whole foods are always lovely, so I can’t imagine I’ll have any issues with them, but you never know I guess.  It was worth saving $800 to risk it IMO!

I haven’t, but my venue recommended them and told me they use them for centerpieces for many events. They have beautiful flowers and prices on things like bouquets seem more reasonable than most florist’s costs.

I’ve talked to the one near me- they can do special orders for you, so it’s definitely worth getting a quote.

I think I am going this route as well. We are having very minimal flowers and I have no specific requests. I might just find whatever arrangement looks best and go with it.

when i was going to DIY my flowers (like all of them), my sister talked me into meeting with a florist.  The centerpieces became a little bit smaller, but we will have eveything done for only $230 more than what we would have spent DIYing them.  Definitely worth it for the peace of mind.  I would in the least shop around and look into a few florists!

I would love to know if you went with Whole Foods for your flowers. We are getting married on Captiva Island and am looking into the Naples Whole Foods. Is that where you looked? Did they deliver? How did it turn out?

 

If not, where did you end up ordering from?

 

Thanks!

I’m not sure about whole foods, but my co-workers have had great experiances with Sams Club bulk flowers.

@Queenbee102:  I used a Whole Foods in Mass and it worked out great.  Flowers were fresh and budget friendly.  My only complaint is that, though they gave me what I asked for, it didnt look quite like my inspiration picture – probably not enough stems.  However, they did fix it within 15 minutes on the day of when I went to pick it up and didnt like it.  So at the end of the day, I loved it!
