I am doing my flowers through Sams club but very basic pieces with garden roses and greenery. If you order direct from the website, you actually have to get them 2 days before to ensure they open because they are so fresh. The only complaints online are that they are too tight and don't open in time. If you buy them in store, that's another story. You can never predict how long they will last
We are doing sams club and I have heard nothing but great things. I was told to have them delivered 2 days prior so they have time to open up. There are also pictures on the website from people who have also purchased from sams.
My SIL used Sam's for her wedding, and they looked gorgeous! The flowers for my shower and her baby shower were also ordered from Sam's.
We went with hydrangeas, and they were incredibly fresh. They definitely opened up after sitting in buckets of water for a while. My SIL used roses for her wedding, and they arrived with instructions on how to strip the stems and store them. All of the flowers lasted for quite a long time (for fresh flowers) as long as they had enough fresh flowers.
I'm using a grocery store for mine. We did a trial run and they lasted a little over a week with just changing the water. Just make sure to follow directions or research how to keep them fresh. This is them after one week.
We ordered the flowers for our centerpieces from Sam's Club. We didnt have any issues with the flowers (sunflowers and baby's breath) and they lasted well over a week. The only problem was some of the flowers were not delivered on the day expected. I contacted Sam's and they were delivered next day.
I got my flowers from Sam's club and did my own bouquets and centerpieces. The flowers were delivered on time and were perfect for our day. I did order other flowers online from Fabulous Florals- those flowers arrived late and they delivered the wrong color. I had ordered pink anemones and they sent purple anemones. Thank goodness the flowers that I had ordered from SAM's didn't have any issues. I ordered my flowers to be delivered 2-3 days before the wedding.
