So you’ve heard about Sam’s Club Wedding Flowers and how they can save you so much money on your wedding floral budget with their cheap wedding flower packages? Well, we’re here to give you our Sam's Club wedding flowers reviews and share with you how we saved hundreds of dollars on our wedding flowers!
We had an outdoor wedding and reception, (see all our wedding details here) so we didn't need very many decorations, but of course every wedding should have beautiful flowers! When we started seeing prices florists are charging for your wedding flowers, we almost decided to just make them ourselves by going to the local farmers market.
But, we also knew that putting together flower arrangements, bouquets, boutonnières, etc would be a lot of work on the day or day before the wedding as well. So when we discovered that Sam’s Club Club has pre-made wedding flower bundles, we were sold!Read More

*Updated July 8, 2019 -*2 years in and the Chicco NextFit ix Convertible Car Seat is holding up amazing! We have had 2 kids in this seat now, and we cannot recommend it enough.
Car Seats these days can be so hard to shop for. You're going to want the safest and best for your little one.

The saying "don't blink" is a serious thing! They grow so fast that you are going to want things that last a long time. You don't want to have to buy 4 different car seats per child, and every time you turn around your child has outgrown their seat. With the Chicco NextFit ix Convertible Car Seat, you'll be able to use this seat from newborn to their preschool years!Read More
