Don't Let Your Wedding Flowers Become a Thorn in Your Side Why buying wholesale wedding flowers can help your wedding look great and not break the bank Miami, Florida (I- Newswire) January 11, 2012 - It may be cold outside, but wedding season is almost upon us, and with the advent of wedding season comes wedding planning. There are key essentials to making a wedding perfect: the bride's dress, the perfect venue, and of course, the wedding flowers. Wedding flowers are a large part of any wedding budget, and can cost thousands of dollars - if you aren't looking in the right place. "We can tailor our wholesale wedding flowers to just about any wedding event," says Richard, General Manager of American Floral Distributors (www.weddingflowersofamerica.com). "With the average wedding costing around $27,000, and flower budget estimates being about 8% of that number, the average bride is looking at spending a minimum of $2000 on flowers alone. With our wholesale wedding flowers, we can help brides save some of their money and still make the event look just as beautiful as a florist can." There are some common misconceptions about buying wholesale wedding flowers versus heading to your local florist. "People tend to think that buying bulk wedding flowers means a bride is compromising on quality. This is simply not true," says Richard. In fact, wholesale and bulk flowers are just as fresh - if not more fresh - than the florist's. Why? "The process is simple and straightforward," says Richard. "In the florist distributor chain, the flowers go from the grower to the importer to the wholesaler and then finally to the florist. This takes anywhere from 8-17 days off the life of the flower." Example A: Grower --- >(3 days) Importer---- >(2-4 days) Wholesaler --- >(2-5 days) Florist --- >(1-5 days) Final Customer Total days out: 8-17 days Remaining life span: 3-5 days "At American Floral Distributors, our flowers are cut in the 'bud' stage at our partner farms and shipped that way directly to the customer. Upon arrival, the bride will need to do some minor caring for the flowers as per the enclosed instructions and allow about twenty- four hours for the flowers to open. By going through a flower wholesaler like American Floral Distributors, your wholesale flowers will last 3 to 4 times longer than a florist's," says Richard. Example B: Grower --- >(3 days) Final Customer Total days out: 3 Remaining life span: 12-17 days Another misconception is in regard to variety and color. "Whether you are looking for wedding flowers, pre- made bouquets, wedding arrangements or bulk flowers for any upcoming event, a flower wholesaler like American Floral Distributors can meet your needs," says Richard. "We are partnered directly with growers on a global level. This gives us access to an incredible variety of flowers world- wide." Richard sums up the wholesale flower business with this: "We have two jobs at American Floral Distributors: the first is to get you the perfect flowers for your wedding or other event. The second is to save you some money while you do it."
