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?

Do people look at the date on articles before posting anymore?

no idea about a florist, but you could start a new thread on divorce lawyers… 🙂 [actually, i second the idea of the wholesalers in the lane behind working gear in fyshwick]

have a bonza day – and bonzaerer life!

Could you spare an hour or two on the morning of the big day? You and your groomsmen should just spend the morning doing the rounds of Canberra’s cemeteries. Plenty of fresh flowers can be found there.

beautifully suggested by amanda 🙂
same i would recommend that you must consider factors like time duration, place and suitable with your dress code etc.

Getting the flowers is the easy bit … although, given the timeframes ‘ordering’ anything will be a problem, just go with whatever they have that comes close in colour and style to what you’re after.

Its the arranging bit … who will be doing that? Could take longer than you think (remembering the rule – anything always takes at least 3 times as long as you estimate). Or is it just a divide and shove into receptacles deal?

If its outdoors and ‘country’ like, maybe some large bottling jars (large preserving type ones … probably acquire at any foody type shop like the one at Belco markets) with ribbons tied in bows round the necks, or even raffia (its a job you can give to anyone to do) … makes inexpensive flowers look more expensive.

Another +1 for Capital Flowers.

They sell wholesale flowers if you’re planning to DIY (or rope in a friendly family member to DI for you…) but also have a florist on-site who can do arrangements if you want something a bit fancier.
