I'm trying to find a florist who will create my bouquets and deliver them on my wedding day (and who isn't charging ridiculous prices!). A florist in Richmond would be ideal, but I'm sure that most florists will deliver anywhere. Any ideas would be helpful!! Thanks so much!
For Reception day: Went with "Along Came Amy Floral Design" (http://www.alongcameamy.com/), she delivered to Richmond, based out of Burnaby. Went with her because I really wanted peonies & everyone else said "no guarantee". She was less than budget (budgeted $500) for: 1 bridal bouquet 3 bmaids (ea maid had diff colours/flowers, this could've been less exp if all were same i think - not sure) 7 boutonnieres (1 groom white orchid, BM had blue fox, Gmen1 yellow tulip & Gmen2 green kermit button mum. They matched their bmaid - parents had jade roses) 1 wrist corsage (jade roses) + delivery (reception day flowers on the right side of the collage)
For traditional Hindu wedding day - my MOH ordered roses from Costco, couldn't afford spending another $500 on flowers, so for $100 & a "little help from my friends". Out of 4 doz cream roses, 4 doz jade roses & 2 doz red roses....the 4 of us in total made: 2 bouquets (1 bride w/2 doz roses, 1 bmaid w/1.5 doz) 30 cream boutonieres (grooms side) 30 jade boutonieres (bride's side) 6 - 2 rose boutonieres (for groom & our parents) left over/broken roses - flower girl baskets (wedding day flowers are pictured on left of collage)
I only cared that the Costco flowers lasted the one day as they get destroyed anyways. The boutonieres were quite bloomed & really full, but the bouquets were perfect. All flowers made it thru. If i did it again, would still make the bouquets but maybe would have the boutonnieres made by florist. Roses were picked up the afternoon before wedding, made everything in the afternoon & put into coolers/fridges & spritzed throughout night.
Costco does offer a 2-doz rose bridal bouquet for $60 or bouquet pkgss.
There were a couple other Vancouver companies that I had found afterwards that I thought were really quite affordable & they made pkgs...I just can't recall the name...
Budget Blooms or something...will respond again if I can find their email.
