Hello! So, I’ve finally gotten my centerpiece idea for our wedding with mostly Dollar Tree items. This whole display is only about $15 minus the florals.
My mom thinks faux florals are tacky so she wants me to use real florals. I want to buy burgundy and ivory roses. Where can I buy these in bulk for a good price? I tried to look at Costco and Sam’s Club bulk flowers, but I can’t tell if they’re white vs ivory or red vs burgundy/deep red. Does anyone know which rose variety I should get? I need to get about 250 stems. Do you think it would also be worth talking to a florist to see what they’ll quote us to do the floral part of the centerpiece? It’s a very simple arrangement. We just want two rose stems per vase, with fishing weights tied at the bottom (hidden in the rocks) to keep them from floating. 2-3 rose heads in the fish bowl. The greenery will be silver dollar or seeded eucalyptus stems just kind of spread around with 4 rose heads laid on top.
Fiftyflowers.com has good prices and customer service. They also have easy to follow tutorials on their site. Black Magic or Black Baccara is your best bet for dark red. Not sure about the white varieties but any will be pretty.
A grocery store florist will be much less expensive than an independent florist.

Oh I didn’t know you could get samples from Costco! Thank you! I’ll have to explore that. That was one of the things I wanted do was to play around with a sample to find the best timing with the flowers (and to just have kind of a dry run).
