Inexpensive Wedding Flowers and Flower Girl Carriage in Brooklyn, NY or NYC?

by DIY wedding planner on December 17, 2011

Hey wanted to possibly make my own wedding centerpieces for the reception but wanted to get flowers for the church and bridal party. Anyone know any inexpensive places in NYC or easy DIY ideas for bouquets, etc? Trying to cut costs anyway I can.
Also looking to rent a Flower Girl Carriage but only places I’ve found online are not in the area, anyone have one to rent or can suggest a place?

Not sure about the Flower Girl Carriage, but for the wedding flowers, I would check out Costco. They have an online floral shop, GREAT prices on bulk flowers, and free delivery. I ordered all my corsages/boutonnieres from them, as well as the bulk roses to make my bridesmaid bouquets.

I use Grower’s Box online. They sell all kinds of cut flowers and even have a “Wedding in a Box” kit that you can get based on the size of your wedding party. It is very cost effective! I have done 3 other people’s weddings and a few parties using bulk cut flowers and every time the result has been good. The more you practice, the better you get! You can get books on floral arrangement at the library and bookstore, they are really useful and Michael’s and AC Moore sell the accessories like oasis, forms, etc. The flwoers have always arrived fresh and have usually included a few extra blooms in case some were not as nice as others.

Here’s a handy link:

And here’s the link to Grower’s Box:

And this place IN Brooklyn sells bulk cut flowers:
Gina Rosencrantz Design
10 Tompkins Place
Brooklyn, NY 11231 718.624.6292

This one ships worldwide, I’ve never used them but have heard good things:

And here is a place right IN NYC:
Associated Cut Flower Company
(212) 367-7800
131 W 28th St, New York, NY 10001

Good luck!!!
