i love that beaded look - are they just on wire and stuck into styrofoam in the middle?  how do you get the beaded bouquet?

ohhh, that's so pretty.  my colors will be similar to yours, sweets (white, red, and bits of black and silver), so i'll have to wait to see how gorgeous yours turn out before trying my own.  Cheesy

Overall, I did have a good experience buying online.  But you're right, it is very difficult to judge quality.  From afloral I ordered two different kinds of small calla lillies (for bouts and corsages), one type was perfect, the other was cheap and plasticy looking.  It was my fault though, it said right in the description that they were plastic.  I just shipped them back to afloral and had a very easy return transaction and refund.  I would highly recommend them, just make sure you read the descriptions carefully.  You'll probably be better off getting the bulk of your flowers in person and filling in with things from the internet.

Sweets, I love that idea for a bouquet!  Just gorgeous!!

Thanks so much for all your help, Shimmer!  I didn't mean to hijack your thread, but I knew you'd be a pool of knowledge!

I'm going to explore silk... wheee!

Okay, I'll leave a more in-depth comment later, but just had to say:

My hubby's and my name are the same as you and your fiance!!!!  Smiley  Good luck to you guys!

ETA: For those that are worried about on-line, we got 15 dozen long stemmed red roses (a case) from Sam's club, for $70. plus tax.  Seriously.  It was amazing, and there were maybe 10 total flowers that weren't perfect, but we used them for corsages.  Smiley

That is TOO cool!  Hahaha... I love it!  And big score on the long stem roses, huh?!   Grin  At first I read 15 long stem roses and thought, meh, that's kind of pricey... but when I reread it was 15 DOZEN that was an INSANE deal!!

AHH!  I didn't see the DOZEN part either!  I wasn't going to reply 'cause I thought it was pricey, too. Cheesy

Every Sam's Club has an independent florist that runs the floral section, so the price varies from store to store.  I had been prepared to pay $110 per 15 dozen, (that's what my local store charged) but the store where we got married was just insanely cheap for some reason.  So, if you want to get married in August in Corpus Christi, Texas you have got it MADE!  I've done flowers for other weddings and the price varied everywhere.  Also, sometimes the flower size does vary also, just make sure you read the fine print to see what you are getting. 

I didn't think I had any photos from my wedding online, but remembered I made this ATC for the 'Amore' challenge a few months ago, it has a wedding pic with my bouquet to show the size of the flowers.  We made it on Friday afternoon and kept it in the refrigerator, the wedding was Saturday at 2pm and the roses were TIGHT.  I took it with us on the honeymoon, and it opened up really nicely about MONDAY and lasted most of the week!


Here's the link if you want to see the whole ATC, just don't steal my wedding vows.  KIDDING.  Tongue
