    I plan to buy "real touch" flowers in order to make my own bouquets/boutonnieres. I've found two websites to order them from and was just wondering if any of you ladies have ordered them successfully or have tips on where it's best to buy them from. www.save-on-crafts.com seems to offer great prices, there is better selection on www.realtouch-flowers.com but no prices and you have to send them a bunch of personal information just to get a quote. I tried angelasaccents as well but their website says they are booked for orders until next spring and my wedding is in Janauary.

      I've seen a lot of posts here about  www.save-on-crafts.com ! 

       

      The thing is, I don't think they ship outside US territory...you should check with US vendors if they do deliver to Canada and if so, make sure you find out if there are extra custom charges. That might sway the price a little bit...

        You're right, they only ship in the U.S. That being said I'm only a 40 min. drive from Ogdensburg, New York where they will ship to the UPS store there for no charge. I figure if I keep my order under $200 Then even if I have to pay duty it will only be around $20. Still way cheaper then the quote the florist in Jamaica gave me ($425!).

              Nikadawn did you check out bloombridal.com ?  They're in Toronto so shipping shouldn't be much!

                Bit of an update. I found a lady in California who specializes in real touch frangipani flowers, which is the type I've had such a hard time locating. Not only does she ship to Canada, she is custom making my bouquet, 2 bridesmaids bouquets, 3 bouts and a floral cake topper all for $270. Total! Super excited to have this done now.
