Flowers: The Growers Box

The last thing I wanted to deal with was flowers. I really don’t like flowers that much. But I realized that I didn’t have time to think of a bouquet alternative. I decided the cheapest and easiest way to make this work was to order them online and then DIY the bouquets. I found a few vendors and realized that I didn’t even have to make the bouquets, I could order them pre-made. It seemed a bit risky as I didn’t know what I would really get. All I could do is look at photos online and trust it. I was willing to take the risk.

I decided to use the Grower’s Box and ordered the lilac 10-piece for $250 (after coupons of course). I got one bridal bouquet, two bridesmaid bouquets, one box of petals, four boutonnieres, and two corsages. The flowers were shipped to my house via Fedex and we only had to keep the bouquets in water and in a cool place until the ceremony. Easy as pie (though pie making isn’t easy). When the flowers came I thought the Bridesmaid’s bouquets were a lot bigger and more colorful than the bridal bouquet. I went for that one instead. Thank goodness I only had a Matron of Honor. I think it turned out great. However, I think someone who really cares about flowers shouldn’t take the risk.
