CONGRATS!! You may want to check your local florist and see if they sale wholesale, if not try searching the web for “wholesale flowers” If you type in wedding or bridal the price tends to go way up. We are doing our flowers ourselves (april wedding also) and our local florist does sale wholesale..

I’ve heard that Publix has wholesale prices on flowers and they have special wedding pacakes for DIY bouquets.

check you paper for fliers from craft stores like Micahels, A.C. Moore, or Joann’s. they are inexpensive, and you can get coupons. go with your bridesmaids and some other people and you can each use a coupon and get them for even less!!

If you live near a Hobby Lobby or Michaels, you should be able to find inexpensive silk flowers. Matter of fact, this week (02/05-02/10) Hobby Lobby’s silk floral stems and floral bushes are 50% off. That’s a really good deal. You can probably spend $5-10 per bridesmaid bouquet–$15-20 on your bouquet, etc. Best wishes!

Find out if there are any stores in your area for vendors. People who own their own business are the only people who have access to these stores. The prices are cheaper because it is for a business. If you have a store for vendors, chances are you know at least one person who has a vendor’s license (I found out I knew about 15!) They can take you in as a guest and they sell their flowers there for alot cheaper than regular craft stores! Good luck!

If you go with real flowers, I would suggest going through a wholesaler like Costco or Sam’s Club. I bought my flowers through them and paid $12.99 per 2 dozen roses. The service was great and the flowers were gorgeous. I picked them up 3 days before the wedding and ordered them medium tight. I had plenty of time to arrange all the centerpieces and bought vases at Michaels for $3 each. For the church, I used pew cones from and filled them with the flowers. When I asked a florist how much she would charged for a similar centerpiece, she said $75 each and I spent under $20 each. The also has some great pictures and ideas. Hope this helps!

Costco or Sam’s Club. I bought mine on the Internet from Sam’s Club. They were gorgeous. I bought 100 red roses and 500 Gerber daisies. The have a big assortment of flowers and they will deliver when you need them to. It took me and 5 other people 3 hours to make 10 bouquets and 8 corsages. Good luck!
