Guarantee and Privacy Policy

Wedding Flowers, Inc. is dedicated to allowing Do-It-Yourself brides access to many florist goods that are rarely available except to retail flower shops. This includes products used in the industry for proper care and processing of bulk wedding flowers purchased from an online wholesaler.

Helpful "How To" Information

We have a large "How To" site devoted to showing you ideas on how to use these products. A DIY bride can design her own wedding arrangements and bouquets while saving on expensive labor and product markup costs.

The site is written and maintained by a professional wedding florist. We will give you support and answer any questions you poise while creating your own wedding flowers to the best of our ability.

We actually use the floral products we sell when designing wedding flowers in our own shop.

We already sell or can obtain most of the products (or similar products) that you see featured on our "How To" site. If we don't carry the featured item, we will try to find the source of the product for you and tell you where it is available. Additional flower designing and wedding cake decorating tutorials are available in our Instructional Resources section of our store site.

Savings on Retail Pricing

We work hard to keep our prices low enough that every bride can create her own decorations, flowers and cake at a substantial savings. The typical markup in the florist industry is 3 to 3 1/2 TIMES THE WHOLESALE PRICE!

We aren't kidding when we say we sell a our products for less than half the cost of buying from a retail flower shop.

Once the products and flowers have been marked up, a typical wedding florist will tack on at least 50% or more in labor alone.

You can see how doing the florals yourself with our products can save you hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars. Educate yourself - take a quick look at FTD. com or Teleflora.com and see how much the "average" wedding arrangement or bouquet costs.
