Need Advise on Florist

Hi,
I have a small budget for flowers about 1300 dollars.  Does anyone have any recommendations? I may order flowers from Fifty flowers and do my own centerpieces but I still need a florist for bouquets, bouts, and corsages. 
Thanks

    I'm using Sam's club.  they are pretty affordable. But Costco and BJs Club have flowers as well.  Honestly they look just as good as if they come from a florist.

    I am using Tre Bella in Durham.  Rose bouts are $12 and bouquets are roughly $65 depending on the flowers you use.  They are wonderful, very professional, and came recomended by my photographer.  They can work with a budget for sure if the prices I quoted were too high.

    If you are DIYing your flowers (like I am) buy the from Sam's club!!! They are so cheap and have great quality, but limited inventory.  If you want the basics like lillies, hydrangeas, daisies and roses, you're fine.  They don't have specialty flowers like freesia or tulips or whatever.  I used Sam's for a bridal shower I threw last year and LOVED the flowers I got.
    But if your budget is 1300 for flowers, that really isn't small at all.  Mine's only 800.  If you've got that much, then I'd probably go to a florist.  Save yourself the time! :)
    I interviewed Julie Liles in Raleigh last night and loved her style and proffesionalism.  I'd recomend her. 
    Good luck!

    I am using Julie. She does a great job accomodating your budget. And her style is SO refreshing compared to the others .....

  • I recommend checking out Fallon's Flowers on Wake Forest Rd.  She got me everything I wanted for under $1K.
