Here Are Several Things To Think About Before Buying Your Wedding Flowers Online
It’s no secret that many brides today are choosing to do their own wedding flowers to save money. They are going online to shop for the types of flowers they want to use in their wedding bouquets and decor.
If you’re searching online, you’ll find a lot of sites selling bulk flowers for weddings and special events.
While there are some very good values out there, one thing to be aware of is the shipping and handling methods they use to deliver your flowers to you.
All of the online bulk flower vendors use overnight shipping services like FedEx and UPS.
Although every online flower wholesaler uses overnight shipping, the flowers are not shipped in a temperature and humidity controlled environment.
That can have an adverse impact on the condition of the flowers when they arrive.
Commercial flower growers use specialized floral-only freight services when shipping flowers from their farms to local wholesale florists.
These freight services feature door-to-door temperature and humidity controlled handling and shipment of floral products. That minimizes shipping stress, to ensure the arrival of top quality flowers.
To be fair, I’m sure the example cited above is not an everyday occurrence when shipping flowers overnight.
But are you willing to take that chance when there could be a better way?
Today, I believe the best value when bulk wedding flowers can be found by buying them locally.
Today, a growing number of retail florists offer “a la carte” wedding services for the bride who wants to do all or some of her own flowers.
For example, we work with many brides who just want to buy the flowers for their wedding ceremony or reception venue, but do some or all of the work themselves. We provide this service through MilwaukeeFlowerMarket.com, our bulk flower sales site.
