Online rose distributor. Prices are unmatched. Quality of flower pretty good. Ensure more than the recommended two days for the flowers to open if you like them full. Ordered several months in advance and flowers came on time.
I ordered all the ceremony / décor flowers from the website www.bigrose.com. They feature a bridal kit that comes with:
* 1 Bridal Bouquet (up to 50 stems)
* 1 Maid of Honor Bouquet (up to 18 stems)
* 4 Bridesmaid Bouquet (up to 12 stems)
* 1 Toss Away Bouquet (up to 12 stems)
* 2 Petit Hand-tied Mother's Bouquet (up to 8 stems)
* 10 Attendant Boutonnieres (up to 3 stems)
* 6 Centerpieces (No Vases Included) (up to 24 stems)
* 1 Rose Petal (Boxes)
I was able to choose the kind of rose I wanted and was able to mix the colors within each item. For example my Maid of Honor and Bridesmaid bouquets had red, orange, and yellow roses. You also can pick what kind of ribbon for each. I didn’t like the ribbon it came with (it was cheap) so I bought my own and rewrapped all the bouquets. Everything was handled over the phone and the flowers arrived on Friday – our wedding was Sunday. The flowers come wrapped in boxes but the bouquets are already tied for you. I had to “blow” many of the stems open because they didn’t quite open a ton before the wedding. The company did send some extra stems just in case some of the flowers died in transit. The colors were vibrant and beautiful and I was completely satisfied. Of course the numbers in the basic package worked out perfectly for me and we had lots of flowers left over to decorate with. It looks like the price of the basic package (which I got) went up $100 but it still might be worth it if you don’t want the hassle.
If you want roses-- this is the right place. I did all the flowers for my wedding for under $500. My bouquet was 50 roses! Everything was great. It took awhile to place the order because I did it on the phone. I wanted to add some and change some of the pieces in the packages. But the roses are beautiful and so fresh. My family took the roses and they lasted for more than a week after the wedding.
GREAT selection and prompt service. Everything was so easy--directions came with the flowers. You just have to have refridgerator space to hold the flowers, or live in a cold climate and keep them in the garage. my roses lasted a long time, dried beautifully and came perfect and undamaged in the mail.
I went through bigrose.com to save on my floral arrangement. I got the 250 roses package for about $200. I was able to make my own bouquet (25 roses), toss bouquet (25 roses), 2 maid of honor bouquet (12 roses ea.), 2 Mother's Bouquet (6 roses ea). 4 boutonniers, and 10 small center floral pieces (14 roses ea.). It was so simple and easy. After buying ribbon, floral wire,baby's breath at the local florist, and the vases at Beverly's Arts & Crafts Store it cost me about $230. Everyone loved the small center pieces and thought a florist did them. The only drawback is that you have to be there when the flowers are delivered other wise they will not deliver them.(I think a signature is required)
I did the flowers myself for my centerpieces myself. I did research and asked around. After I placed and order with another online flower place I started to hear not so good things about them. So, I started over and decided on recommendations from other brides to go with Bigrose.
I ordered 200 purple roses from them to be delivered on the Wed. before the wedding. I wanted them to be fully opened by the time we used them. The roses arrived on time with no problems regarding delivery.
When I opened the first, 2nd and 3rd boxes I was so amazed at the quality and beauty of the roses. They were so large, and such a beautiful color, I was so happy!!!! I could honestly say that I have never seen such beautiful purple roses before. At that point I was sooo sooo happy I had been so worried about the roses.
Then I opened the 4th box and I wanted to cry L The roses in the 4th box were brown tipped, smaller, and I knew I was in trouble. The enclosed form said to cut and soak for 2 hours before calling them with problems. I did that but found they wouldn’t be open until the next morning.
The first man I spoke with was very nasty and asked me “well what do you want me to do?” I told him to have someone with some customer service skills to call me back. They called back while I was at work and spoke to Stefan who explained the problem. They did credit us for the 50 roses, but that wasn’t going to solve the crisis I had with flowers. I sent Stefan all over that day looking for nice purple roses….nothing!
So, the day before my wedding I had to drive all over looking for white, or ivory roses to throw into the purple mix. I did find beautiful roses, but now had to go back and redo all the bunches I had made already to include white roses.
In the end the centerpieces and roses looked absolutely gorgeous, but for the 2 days before my wedding were spent stressed and searching for roses while I had more important things to be doing.
This was my only problem with the wedding that really got to me. I kept asking myself those 2 days “what the hell was I thinking?” why did I decide to do my own? I would definitely not recommend doing your own to anyone! I didn’t really end up saving any money.

Even though my wedding was on a friday after a holiday they worked overtime in order to get my order ready for the big day! Everything was perfect from the Pink roses to the Green roses! it was fantastic! the centerpeices and the bouquets were top notch!
By doing all most of floral arrangements myself, we were able save quite a bit of money, plus my maid of honor and I had a blast making the arrangements the night before the wedding. It worked out terrifically! I definitely recommend bigrose.com as their service, product options, and assistance were outstanding. I would definitely go through them again for a big/important event!
I had a problem submitting my order through the website and it accidently put the order in twice. I called them the next day and they took care of it cancelling the second order and removing the credit card charge. The flowers arrived in good condition. I was a little worried at first about the color and size on the Thursday before the wedding but as they opened up the colors became what I expected and the roses were beautiful. Only 2 of the 250 had short stems which was fine since I needed some short ones for corsages anyway.
