Wedding Planning

With a recession at stake and many details to think about when preparing a wedding, brides are involving their moms, bridesmaids, grandmothers and aunties to help arrange centerpieces and bouquets so they can cut corners and enjoy the premium flowers desired for their wedding. Centerpieces, bouquets, and boutonnieres are very simple to make when following DIY wedding flower tips and instructions.

Whole Blossoms is an online flower wholesaler that specializes in selling premium flowers for DIY weddings. Whole Blossoms flowers are shipped direct from the farms in Colombia and Ecuador to you so you not only save on your wedding flowers but also get the freshest cut flowers available in the market for you to have the most memorable day of your life.

Factors to consider when buying and processing Wholesale Flowers for your Wedding or Event:

  • Order your flowers at least one to two months prior to your wedding or event. If you place your order a couple of weeks before your event, it is possible that the flowers you want are not available or you may need to pay a premium price to find the desired colors and varieties
  • If your wedding is on Saturday, schedule your flower delivery for Wednesday or Thursday. This will enable the flowers to open nicely and will ensure that you won’t have last minute delays due to weather or flight cancellations
  • Fill a sink or bathtub with several inches of filtered warm water to hydrate your flowers. Carefully remove the flower wrapping and stand the flower bunches in the water until you make the arrangements. Make fresh cuts on all stems before arranging, and make your rose cuts underwater. This will ensure that the flowers will be hydrated properly and will look radiant for your wedding or event
  • If you need a last minute order, Whole Blossoms can ship you flowers within 48 hours depending on the flower variety needed
