Well, I was going to do the same thing until my Fi took an unprecidented interest in the flowers and insisted on me having a elaborate orchid bouquet (he even specified the picture!). Hehe. I knew I couldn’t do that myself! ANYWAY… in my searches, I found one of the best wholesale retailers to actually be online. http://www.flowerbud.com  They have a great selection, awesome prices and they send out all of the flowers in bud form so that you have a couple of days to play with (As opposed to Costco or any other retailer who sell their flowers ready to display). Good luck!

I did DIY flowers (see my profile for my knottie bio for pictures) and they were cheap and beautiful.

You’d be surprised that there are probably a lot of local places that will sell you flowers in bulk for wholesale prices.  Try calling local flower shops (not florists).

We got most of our flowers from a local farmer’s market vendor.  They were very helpful and knowledegable.  Plus they delivered them for free because we ordered so many.

HTH!

I echo FoxtheHound, look up local flower wholesalers in the phone book and call them, they often sell to the public.

I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in my friend’s wedding when she did this from flowers from Sam’s club. Make sure to buy floral tape and maybe some satin ribbon to wind around the stems. We then took some long white headpins and stuck them along the stems going vertically to hold everything together. It really looked beautiful when we were done and just as good as any other florist.

 However, the night before, her living room was FILLED with pastic cups and water with the roses stuck in them. It was quite a bit of work to cut everything, but she just had everyone pitch in during the rehersal dinner that was at her house.
