Reasonable Flower Shops...?

Hi- I'm looking for any reasonable flower shops in the Omaha/Bellevue area. Does anyone have any suggestions?  I've checked at one location so far and the price seems rediculous for the small amount of flowers I'll have.  Only need the Bridal bouquet, throw, 5 BMs, and 3 corsages...

Thank you!

    Honestly, Check out Costco.. not the glamorous flow shop you probably had in mind but they do a fabulous job.. Leah is amazing, knows her stuff, and is SOOO reasonable ( even cheaper than fake flowers!).  I am going with her!  I saw her do a presentation at a wedding show and was blown away. When I get home later tonight I will post her number..

    As long as I'm not paying an arm and a leg and my first born child, I don't care WHERE the flowers come from!  What flowers are you having?  I know I picked some of the more expensive ones -callas and orchids for me, callas for the BMs. And THANK YOU!

    I think Iam going to do Gerber daisies for the BM- 8.99 a boquet and roses for me 14.99/ dozen  super simple! The price on her Calla's wasn't bad either- I don't remember off the top of my head- I think it is on my sheet at home so I will look when I get home and post that if it's on there. and YW- love to share a good deal when I can!! she is super nice and has great ideas too!

    Do you have to be a Costco member to get these deals?  It actually might be worth it to get those kind of rates!!

    No, you do not need a Costco membership to order their flowers, but you do have to pay like $50 bucks extra.  There is a LOT of work that goes into ordering your own flowers. You have to proof them, cut them, and store them for a few days prior to the wedding. Then you have to tie all the bouquets and make all the boutonnieres. AND then you have to store them until the event.

    Sometimes you can find independent designers who will do small, custom orders for you at reasonable prices. These people usually have their wholesale floral license and can order from the warehouses to save $$.  It's worth it to NOT have to worry about making your own stuff and using up all your precious days prior to the wedding by being knee-deep in flowers.

    I know a guy Dustin who does this. Give him a call and see if it's a reasonable price for you. 402-509-8131
