How Much Do Flowers Cost Wholesale? Especially for Brides/Weddings

Buying flowers wholesale can seem confusing. Why is this? It's mostly because flowers are perishable and don't last forever. They are a commodity.

Let's break it down a bit more.

This is the chain of buying flowers from us here at The Flower Shoppe in Blaine, Minnesota:


We bulk order flowers from flower farmers around the nation and world.
The price of the farmer's flowers change every week. Why? Well, the cost of the flower depends on how many he has (some weeks are better than others depending on weather, etc).
So we don't know week to week how much the wholesale flowers will cost exactly. (We will have a
general idea.)

That's why pricing out wholesale flowers is confusing for weddings that want to book way in advance of their wedding date.
That's why we don't take orders too far in advance for weddings and such. We don't want to over or under charge you for your flowers. We want to get you the best quality flowers at a fair price! 

Hopefully …
