Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to figure out what I want to do for my flowers. A florist isn't in my budget and I really don't care that much about flowers but want to have very basic bride/BM bouquets and centerpieces. Has anyone done/planned to do the bulk flowers from Costco?

Thanks for any advice!

    We did grocery store flowers. Much cheaper and they still do it for you. We spent $250 total.

    Thanks, Dominique! Where did you get your sola flowers? I've heard of them but really don't know much about them.

    I was planning on doing that or another online, but put it together yourself option - Bloominous, Kukka Flowers. But I actually found a florist that was a similar price to do it for me. She had just moved to the area, so her rates were a little lower while she was trying to build up business.

    I'm planning on getting flowers from the grocery store. I'm just doing my bouquet, MOH bouquet, petals for flower girl, and maybe boutoniers for FH and my dad. I'm not big on flowers

    Following as well! I'm thinking about sola wood flowers and possibly live greenery maybe from sams club for centerpieces and decor. Was going to talk to some local florists to get quotes just for my bouquet and my two bridesmaids bouquets and bouttanires for the men.

    We are doing fake flowers. we did those for the centerpieces and around the frame for the selfie station. They have some bunches already put together at the craft stores ranging from **** depending on the size. I opted for the alternative to bouquets for the BM. I did lace fans. We made the boutonnieres and corsages for the moms and dads from real flowers, if you have an H.E.B//they only charged me 1.99 per boutonniere and 3.99 for corsage.

    There are a few stand alone companies that do sola wood flowers (eco flowers and southern blooms co) but their reviews aren’t stellar. There are a few sellers on Etsy that also do sola wood flowers and most of them have really good reviews, so that is where I will be getting mine. Most are willing to customize them for you and have pictures of their standard work so that would be a good place to start. They are a good option because they are relatively inexpensive and they last forever.

    I was going to do mine from sam’s, but they’re minimum was slightly more than we needed. Our officiant happens to be a florist and is just ordering the flowers for me m, but not arranging them. It cut the cost of my flowers in half from sam’s doing it that way.

    My daughter has ordered flowers from Costco for her April 28 wedding. She ordered the package of boutonnieres & corsages (you can change the numbers of each to suit your needs), and then an order of hydrangeas that my DIL is going to wrap into 3 bouquets for bride & 2 bridesmaids. If there are extra hydrangeas, we'll put them around the reception venue &/or ceremony. I'll let you know later how they turned out!

    Flowers were not one of my daughter's priorities, and she was happy to order the above flowers for total of $200.

    For church aisle decor, I am using small amounts of silk flowers on grapevine wreaths (not included in the $200). Reception centerpieces are non-floral.

    I'm getting mine from Sam's. I actually LOVE fresh flowers, but don't have it in my budget to get a florist. I am getting over 500 stems from Sam's for less than $400. They have really good reviews and the flowers came how I wanted them as opposed to Costco more limited choices.

    I got mine done from a lady in Tennessee named Logan. Her company is called Knots and Daises. You can message her on Facebook and speak to her about what kind of flowers you want. My opinion is they are amazing! Completely light, she made them look so good.

    I’ve also heard many good things from eco flowers too! They are wood sola flowers

    If you were to go the wood sola option, Knots and Daises would be a good choice. Her bridal bouquets are 80 dollars, bridesmaid bouquets are 40, boutonnieres are 5 dollars. But when you get your bridal bouquet, you get a free boutonniere! So for 5 bouquets, mine included, and 4 boutonnieres with 1 free one would have cost me $230 if I hadn’t of also chosen to order centerpiece flowers from her.

    Sola wood flowers are amazing! I ordered a test bouquet off of Etsy last year (I wanted to see how well they would hold up, and they look as new as the day I received them). Mine has pages from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (we're having two themes that entwine together for the wedding, it's a bit much for me to explain on this thread). Here's my sample bouquet. The seller's name is SoaringSapphire. She's able to produce quality work quickly as well (she also did a rush order bouquet for my friend who got married last year. This is a picture of her holding my bouquet after it was made (before it was sent), I can show you what it looks like now as well if you want in another post. She can customize the flowers as much as you want (different types of flowers, colors, etc). The price varies depending on the size of the bouquet and types of flowers.

    Whichever route you take in the end (sola wood, grocery flowers, or silk), they will look AMAZING! Smiley smile
