Flowers

Anyone have suggestions on places to order artificial flower for my wedding party from? we have a very large wedding party so we are looking for something nice but inexpensive.

I agree with the first two ladies! I ordered flowers from aloral.com just because. Also, try www.saveonglass.com. I love this website! They have all kinds of neat things! I love real touch flowers.

I'm not sure what your price range is (I know you said inexpensive) but check out this Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/KateSaidYes


She made custom (artificial) bouquets for me and my BM's and they were gorgeous. :)

With Afloral.com Are the boquets pretty full? or will I get a few things and put them together myself? Did you guys find it was cheaper to get flowers from Afloral then it was to get them real? we have a very large wedding party so I nervous the flowers will really add up!

I ended up just buying fake from hobby lobby during one of their many sales, and putting the bouquets and stuff together myself. Given, I also made some silk flowers, but I think it's because I am a little bit of a control freak.... I wasn't liking every single aspect of the ones I saw on websites. I did find out that we had a local lady to me that did fake flowers for a really inexpensive price! Maybe you have someone similar near you?

I don't have any advice on artificial, but I have heard a lot of great things about afloral.com here on the boards. If you are thinking of going the real route (but putting them together yourself), I can't reccomend www.fiftyflowers.com enough. I oredered ALL my wedding flowers from there (all bouquets, centerpieces, flowers for on top of the cake, etc.) from there, and they were GORGEOUS. Seriously. I was super suspicious, but they turned out beautiful. Also, one of the girls I work with ordered hers from Sam's Club, and they were beautiful too! And floral arranging is not as hard as I thought it would be. I had no prior experience, but they turned out so pretty. We got tons of compliments:)

How did it work ordering real ones? dont you only have a certain period of time that they stayed alive for?

When you order real flowers online, they ask you for your wedding date so they are delivered the day before or a day you specify.  I was going to do fake flowers at first but ended up doing real flowers because I buy roses all the time for Kroger. If you look on my page, my bouquet came from Kroger and it was 19.99. I got it the day of my wedding. The bridesmaids bouquets were not as large as mine so I got a dozen roses along with some wildflowers and baby breath and made four bouquets for 25.00.  The Kroger in MI have really awesome deals on flowers. Have you tried Sam's Club?

Haha, I did get the message before I saw this :) They are actually all artificial and can be delivered whenever you want them!
