    So....I dropped the ball on my flowers. I didn't contact Tia or any other vendor and my wedding is in 22 days...I can get flowers from Hibiscus for a fee of course, but really don't want to spend $900 on them. So I went to Michael's with a picture of the bouquet I liked...they will make it for a fraction of the price. Has anyone ever used them? I don't get my bouquet until next Thursday, two days before I am set to move...Needless to say I am a little stressed. If you have used Michael's I would love to see pics. Thanks.

      One of my bridesmaids just sent me a phone pic of a bouqet from michaels that was adorable. I trust her judgement, and she said they were nice looking in person. And at a great price! Ill save a couple hundred dollars if i go this route. I will use the resorts fresh flowers, but i am thinking of using the ones from michaels for the bridesmaids. Good Luck! when you can, please post a pic of yours!!

        I just saw a pic of someone who had their boquet done at Michaels in a planning thread...let me see if I can find it.

        I didn't even realize that Michaels did boquets until I saw it in this thread. It looks pretty impressive. Hope this helps!

          Wow, that Michael's bouquet looks amazing! Are those real touch flowers?

            I think Michael's does have some True Touch flowers...the orchids look like True Touch, but not the callas. They did do an excellent job though!

              I was thinking of doing the same.
              I wonder what their prices are...

                A friend of mine used Michaels for her wedding and they were beautiful. Unfortunately, I do not have any pictures, though.

                  I haven't seen any bouquets from Michaels but I have always loved their arrangements. If the bouquets are a fraction as nice as the arrangements it'll be beautiful. Will they show you a sample before ordering?

                    We used Michael's for the parents' corsages and bouts and they were beautiful! Wish I would've just gotten hubby's there too.

                      I made my own using Michaels flowers. I used Stargazer Lillies, Calla Lillies, and 1 big Gerber in the center. They look incredible, as do some of the roses.

                      The price you pay will determine your quality. For example, there are several types of roses/orchids/lillies to choose from. The cheaper ones look and feel fake, whereas the more expensive ones, no one can tell their fake.

                      I made my bouquet myself and only bought when the flowers were on for 1/2 price, or used a 40% or 50% off coupon. I'm there every weekend and they all know me know :) This bouquet cost me $34, my MOH cost $17, bouteniers not done yet.

                      Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs
