inexpensive florist?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Do any of you have a contact for an inexpensive florist. My brother's rehearsal dinner may need centerpieces and since my mom & I aren't from Hawaii we're not sure where to look. Any names, ideas, or suggestions would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks!

I don't have a recommendation, but you might want to browse some of the Hawaii wedding reviews and start there.

 

Good Luck!

We are getting married in Honolulu in July and we are using Tod with Always Flowers (Home). He is so creative and he is honest - which is sometimes hard to find in a wedding florist. Also, he doesn't ask you for a budget. He takes your ideas and then creates table settings in several different price ranges for you to choose from.

I searched for a good florist, and he had the best reviews. Good luck!

Where is his wedding going to be in hawaii? My uncle lives on Oahu so i could ask him for recommendations. Also what about artificial? Mine are $45, they are about 10" wide and 14" in tall in glass vases

I'm currently waiting on a quote from watanabe florals. I had a semi-frustrating experience with my initial florist search. Since I'm doing non-floral centerpieces and my bridesmaids are carrying parasols, I only need my bridal bouquet. Many florists were conveniently booked on my THURSDAY wedding date in MAY 2010. ugh.

Did you choose a florist yet? I've seen a lot of photographers pages raving about Flowergirls Hawaii. We are doing our own flowers. I saw a video on how to do hand tied bouquets, went to Sams Club, bought some flowers and brought them home to try it. It was so easy, and the bouquets took 5 minutes and turned out beautiful. They cost about $8.00 a piece. (not including the ribbon I tied them with, but that hasn't been decided yet)

There is a Sams one mile from the hotel, they can custom order your flowers (they also make bouquets) we can pick them up and bring them back to the hotel and put them together the day before. Stick them in some ice water in coolers and whala...done and on the cheap! We will put the bouquets in vases at the reception as centerpieces, so they will do double duty. Otherwise they would not be used anymore and what a waste...they would just end up squished on the table while everyone is eating or dancing.

 

By the way, the flowers I have bought from Sams club have ALWAYS outlasted any I have got from a florist.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
