So my sunflowers arrived from bunchesdirect.com on Wednesday and they weren't really what I was expecting. I was expecting medium and I got petite and they weren't in the best shape. Acceptable to some, but not for my big day. Thank goodness my sisters friend is a florist. We called on her for help and at 4:30 am yesterday I went with her into Boston to the Flower Market and was able to buy the flowers I wanted, medium sunflowers, lavender and fillers. Tomorrow is the big day and today all my friends arrive to help with the food prep and flower arrangements! As of now, the weather for tomorrow is partly cloudy which to me, really means partly SUNNY!!

If any of you are in the Boston area and know a florist that will take you to the flower market if you are doing your own flowers - go for it!! It can't hurt to ask, all they can say is no!

Good luck to the rest of you getting married tomorrow!! YAY

    I'm glad you were able to get the right flowers.

    I've been given flowers from ProFlowers before and they came a bit small and bloomed really large. I don't know if that is the case with your flowers, but with sunflowers, they don't really bloom and get bigger, so I dunno...

    Anyway, I'm glad everything worked out Smiley smile

    Ugh - luckily you were able to make that right. i ordered from bunches direct too - expecting purple flowers but pink came instead (and two different shades). what a disaster. was on the phone with them for hours trying to get a new shipment and/or some money back and they did neither...thankfully we just made it work and the centerpieces came out great (was for an engagement party - would def not recommend bunches direct to anyone - esp for their wedding) see what they showed on their website vs what actually came.

    I had an excellent experience using Bunches Direct. They had all the flowers I was looking for and I saved a lot of money. We put together all the bouquets and boutonnieres ourselves and they looked wonderful! The flowers and greens were fresh and beautiful. I would recommend Bunches Direct anytime! I do see the difference in color above but you have to note flowers are a natural product and it is hard to get exactly what you see.... I researched this issue myself when buying and found that none of the bulk flowers sites can guarantee color. I also found that purple is a tricky color especially. anyways I hope everyone enjoyed there day as I did!
