Wholesale wedding flowers delivered to you

I'm of the opinion that weddings are the type of affair you would like to hand off to someone experienced that you trust. However, I did just up and get married without much fanfare, so take that philosophy with a grain of salt. Nonetheless, if you are the type who taking care of everything herself, then is for you.

In a nutshell, FiftyFlowers can put together together centerpieces for you and ship them to you -- all you have to do is put them on the tables. OR, you can pick out your favorite flowers -- say mini lilies and stargazers -- and they'll cut them and ship them to you, so you and your crew (friends, bridesmaids, relatives, what have you) can arrange them the way you want them arranged.

For example, check out this mini sunflower corsage. They can arrange these mini sunflowers as a boutonniere. Let me tell you, this is useful -- my mom used to say that the personal bridal flowers were the most work, as they are the most intricate of the vast variety of wedding flowers out there. So if you decide to do your flowers yourself, but have to bite the bullet for your personal flowers, this is not a bad way to go.

And while delivery of personal flowers can be a pill (trust me, I was a delivery person many a time), their delivery boxes are impressively well made to keep the flowers safe from being crushed against one another.

They were even bold enough to list their prices right up front -- 20 stems of mini calla lilies for $79.99. And they have a huge assortment of fresh rose petals, ready to ship right to you.

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm a cheap bastard. So I would probably spend the gas and waste my time going into downtown to get my own flowers, if I were so inclined to do my own flowers for my wedding (which, as I mentioned, I was not, but that's an entirely different story). But you might not be near a large flower market like the one available here in L.A., or maybe you want a certain flower you can't seem to find. This is a good option. And, I'll do you a favor.

I have a postcard they were handing out. It says they're giving a Show Special -- 5% off your total order. Just enter discount code: BRIDE. Easy as pie.
