4 Things To Consider Before Buying Bulk Wedding Flowers Online

It’s no secret that many brides today are choosing to do their own wedding flowers, and are buying bulk wedding flowers online to save money.
If you’re searching online, you’ll find a lot of sites selling bulk flowers.
While many do offer some very good values, the thing to be aware of is the shipping and handling methods they use.
All of the online bulk flower vendors use overnight shipping services.
Although fast, the flowers are not shipped in a temperature and humidity controlled environment.
That can have an adverse impact on the condition of the flowers when they arrive.
Here’s a real-life example of what can happen…
Commercial flower growers use specialized floral-only freight services when shipping flowers from their farms to local wholesale florists.
These freight services feature door-to-door temperature and humidity controlled handling and shipment of floral products. That minimizes shipping stress, to ensure the arrival of top quality flowers.
To be fair, I’m sure the example I cited above isn’t an everyday occurrence when shipping flowers overnight.
But are you willing to take that chance when there could be a better way?
Today, I believe the best value on bulk wedding flowers can be found by buying them locally. Here’s why.
Today, a growing number of retail florists offer “a la carte” wedding services for the bride who wants to do all or some of her own flowers.
For example, we work with many brides who just want to buy the flowers for their wedding or reception, but do the work themselves. We provide this service through MilwaukeeFlowerMarket.com, our bulk flower sales site.
Want to do your own flowers?
If you want to do your own flowers, here are four ways we can help you save time and money:
- We offer “close to wholesale” pricing on all bulk wedding flower purchases.
- Based on your input and our experience, we can suggest the proper quantity of flowers that you will need to do the job right. This minimizes waste, saving them money.
- Our product sourcing is much better than what you will be able to find on your own, so you can be assured you’ll get the best quality flowers available, at the best price.
