From what I’m hearing it’s safer to go in person a couple days before to make sure 🤔🤔 I’ll definitely have to make sure what I want would be there though! So sorry you had to deal with that but good ok you for making th best of the situation ☺️
OKAY - good and bad! I only needed 4 bouquets, I special ordered flowers a month in advance.. my man went to pick them up 2 days before the wedding (the lady said its best we come 2 days early to have time to arrange the flowers and for them to finish blooming?) anyway... I got home to see all my flowers were already dead.... the sunflowers were browning and falling apart.. Every rose I touched to put into a bouquet would just fall apart.. I was sooo disappointed. HOWEVER, I took them back and got a full refund and then picked out some nice fresh flowers the day before the wedding, and it all turned out okay. I did not get to use my original idea for the flowers as I wanted sunflowers and red roses, but I did find similar flowers and fresh roses that turned out great, I just had to compromise a little. If i was to do it again I would just go in the day before and pick the prettiest flowers, or even safeway has beautiful flowers but they are more expensive. Idk if i just got the short end of the stick this time around with the flowers but ya, the ones i special ordered were all dead. but the ones they had in the store the next day were fresh and pretty.
I got married this weekend and I used Costco flowers. I went to meet with the florist that works there for a special order a couple months prior and I picked it up de day before. Everything was perfect and the flowers were BEAUTIFUL!!! I ordered silver dollar eucalyptus, white roses and babysbreath. The only down side is that the babysbreath were not there on time, I had to wait 30 minutes because the delivery was late. I paid 176$ and I had waaaaaaay too much i ended up using the leftover for more decorations. The flowers are still holding strong 3 days after the wedding! I would recommend it to any diy bride I know

My mom was a florist in the past and she got back to me saying it was “pricey” and that she’s going to check with some other florists to see their pricing - so that’s helpful! I also have a coworker whose husband works for Costco so I think I would be safe if I went in and ordered in person instead of online ☺️
One couple got married and went through Costco for flowers which was never received to them for their wedding. I would make it a point to pick up personally knowing its with you and at the reception hall ready to go. A day before you plan on going to the venue and requesting to have some space in the fridge if they can hold for you.
