If you are looking to buy a bouquet for the one you love, it could end up costing you a pretty penny. So, where can you go to buy a dozen of the best flowers that isn’t going to empty your wallet? Leave it to your Savings Angel to give you the insider information on buying flowers. I’ll rank these in order of “least likely to get great quality for a great price” to where the most serious of flower buying folk will make their purchase.
Why should you buy from a wholesaler if you qualify? I was able to buy 25 long stem (40 cm) red roses for $32.50. The greens and baby breath were a couple dollars. Two dozen arranged roses from my local florist would have cost $139. This means your florist is charging you $104.50 for cleaning, arranging, a ribbon, and some wrapping paper.
I don’t mean to bemoan these great business owners. They work very hard and have many other expenses involved. Also, there is some skill involved in arranging flowers. This being said, I was able to watch several flower arranging videos online with my oldest daughter and we created a great bouquet for my dear wife. Make sure to do a search for how to cut roses as well. A bit of technique can mean a more attractive arrangement which will last longer.
Buy your premium roses from a wholesaler, if you can. Otherwise, buy regular roses from a regular retailer or farmers market or roadside stand. Shop early and do NOT pay more than $18 a dozen – unless you are sure you are getting better quality or cannot find an adequate dozen. Make sure to present your roses with a vase, greens, and a nice card to your loved one on the day of all days to celebrate your love.
