I'm also in the same boat as many of the brides who posted recently in that I have very little knowledge about flowers. I just know that I have a small budget and would like to stretch my dollar as far as possible.
So I've been reading that a few brides are going online to buy bulk flowers. For example, let's say I like this centerpiece: http://www.fiftyflowers.com/product/Lavender-Classic-Fresh-Centerpieces_23648.htm
. And I need 8 of them. All I have to do is buy 8 of them for $150, they arrive at my house on say a Thursday, and my family puts them together in our vases on Friday, and then set them up on Saturday? It's that easy?
It seems too good to be true since florists have been estimating $50+ per centerpiece for me. So I want to make sure I'm not missing something in this picture.
