All About Sam’s Club Wedding Flowers & Sam’s Club Bulk Flowers

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!

Chicco Car Seat NextFit ix- Newborn to Preschool

*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.
