HELP I need flowers for my wedding next weekend

By Hank - 12 January 2012 29

As the title suggests I’m getting hitched next weekend and I’ve forgotten about the flowers. My jobs included beer/wine, entertainment and flowers. To be honest I was too excited about the beer and forgot all about the flowers… until now.

I have a $300 budget to get anything in season the bride is not a zilla she’s relaxed and grateful for anything.

If you all could suggest places I could buy flowers in bulk or pick up a bargain I would be very grateful.

PS keep it on the down low I have told her I have it all sorted.

What’s Your opinion?

Poetry In Flowers – Gungahlin (they deliver for free and have online ordering although I would suggest a visit in person to look at pics and stock)

They did my wedding flowers, including button hole flowers for the boys ordered the day before the wedding when they suit hire place discovered the silk kerchiefs hadn’t been returned from the last hire.

I’m pretty sure the total for all flowers was less than $300 inc big bunch for bride, smaller replica for matorn of honour and basket for flowergirl.

You should call a reliable wedding decorator and they will sort everything out for you.

The best one that I’ve heard lots of good things about is Just Like Magic

http://www.justlikemagic.com.au

Send them an email and tell them what you want and they should put them in vases and setup and pack everything down for you!

Good luck!!

And if it on a property gum tree branches can act as great fillers

Think about the colour theme as well. Red roses might clash if the bridesmaids are all wearing blue….

There’s lots of daisies about when the sun is out.

I should qualify a few things the soon to be wife has sorted out the bouquets and lapel corsages. I have the rest of the venue flowers. We are not having table flower decorations so they will be used around the room and venue (its outside on a property so fingers crossed with the weather). I have no idea about the vases apparently they are important, I’ll find that out and give you an update.

I do like the market idea ill get onto that this weekend so it could be ready by next weekend.

Thanks for the suggestions keep them coming please.

You’re probably better to spend your $300 budget on apology flowers.

+ 1 for Florever in Dickson
borizuka, you got there before me. Florever in Dickson is wonderful. They did my wedding and did a beautiful job. Explain your predicament and your budget and I’m sure Val’ll be able to pull something together.

You could rock up really early to the Farmers Market this weekend, and see they two flower stall holders there. If you are really keen/desperate drive to Sydney at 4am and visit the Markets there in the morning for some really good cheap/stock.

Otherwise I would be talking to a Florist to see what stock they have and they can get in. Usually it takes 2 days to order in, so you might be in time for Friday! I recommend the Dickson one: Florever

You’re screwed.

This made me LOL!

I have no idea of wedding flower pricing, but what do you need for your bucks? Bouquets? How many? Are the bride/maids having flowers in their hair? How many flowers do you need for the blokes? Other floral arrangements for the venue/s?

Smooooth.

Jamison Flowers have always been good to my family, and extended family, for all occasions.

Putting a bloke in charge of flowers… why?!

Capital Flowers in Oaks Estate is worth checking. Wholesaler who sells to the public, in fact you can go in there business hours.

Another wholesaler who’ll sell to the public is in that laneway in Fyshwick behind Working Gear. If the door’s open, they’re open.

And check out Costco although you might be limited to what they’ve got, but if you talk to them you might be able to do something. Their “growers bunches” (bunches of teh same flower, not roses) are quite well priced. Combine a crapload of those with filler greenery and you could do rather well.
