    I have heard they are great. There were a number of comments on here a few months ago about how the flowers that came were better than the photos.

    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

    Check out eco flower! www.ecoflower.com. Wooden flowers that look real. I bought a few of their home decor items and am considering them for my bouquets.

    @Ms2Mrs: that's what I'm planning on doing! I spent most of my budget on the venue knowing I'd have to skimp on flowers but honestly they are still quite nice looking!

    @Courtney: wow, I just looked those up and they're gorgeous!!

    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.

    I ordered some from Sams to use in my centerpieces. They're currently being shipped to FMILs house, but I can give you an update once I get them. I know the pricing is great.

    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.

    My sister was a bridesmaid in a wedding where they each put together their own bouquet. She ended up with hives because of her allergies and a runny nose from the pollen.

    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.
