FLOWERS!

Hey!  Does anyone know of a cheap place to get flowers?  I heard of the Lake Union flower market but you have to have a business licence to buy there.  I'm doing roses for the boquets and just a mix of white flowers to put in vases on as my centerpieces.  I thought of going to Pikes a day or two before the wedding and seeing what they have...But I'm thinking there has to be a better option when buying that many flowers.  I figure I will probably get the roses from costco...But the white flowers I'm not sure.

Any ideas would be appreciated!!! :)

    they ship the flowers from ecuador - I ordered some as a test run a month or so ago and they were beautiful!  They did take about 2 days to open up but everything was intact and lovely.

    Some of the HI brides ordered theirs in bulk from fiftyflowers.com, so you might check them out.

    As for the non-roses, I would suggest going to Pike market a week or two in advance to see what they have in season. I wanted a mix of blues and purples with some white for all my CP and was not picky about the actual type of flower, other than I definitely needed to have some Iris and I arranged with one of the vendors on my scouting trip to have 4 dozen. It wasn't difficult and was pretty economical. Just bring a couple 5 gallon buckets and some helpers to carry said buckets. It's a lot easier to put the flowers in the buckets to carry.

    I'm going to a whole sale florist tomorrow - I don't believe they require a business license.  I will let you know what I find! :)

    I just did the flowers for my cousin's wedding this weekend- we used calla lilies (purple and white) that we purchased at a local flower shop and ordered a whole bunch of white flowers from Costco and fiftyflowers.com. Both places were good enough to work with. Depends on what you're looking for.

    *Note, my cousin went bridezilla on us last minute and somehow I got stuck superglueing tiny, little sparkling crystals onto to her lilies... He flowers turned out perfect but my figures are still covered with superglue. I'll be pissed for a while.
