I know this post isn’t about food, but I know it will help someone who is in search of flowers for their wedding in Vancouver or Burnaby on a budget.
It was a month before my wedding and I still didn’t have a florist. I inquired with a lot of places but was always turned off by how expensive flowers can get. It was one of the last things on my mind since I really had no preference. I even contemplated doing the flowers myself but realized it was silly because in the end it would still be a few hundred dollars and I would need to put it together when I had no time. DIY wasn’t an option.
A few people recommended Proline Trading as they are a wholesale wedding florist. Kathleen is very easy to work with and accommodating. She’s very flexible with your budget and can try to make things happen.
Since I didn’t have an idea of what I wanted, she had a few binders of examples, so I just chose one I liked. Besides flowers, they also do rentals as well. It’s really a one stop shop if you need drapes or cake stands.
I ended up getting:
- A dozen individually wrapped roses
- 1 bridal bouquet
- 4 bridesmaids bouquet
- 4 boutineers for the parents and grandparents
All for around $370 after taxes but I would have to pick them up from them in the morning. As my wedding was on Mothers Day, we got the roses for all the Mothers to thank them for being so amazing.
The price was very very very reasonable as other places were quoting me around $600.
Proline Trading is highly recommended if you are having your wedding at Riverway Clubhouse since it’s literally a few minutes drive. Since we needed the flowers earlier in the day, we picked them up and brought it to our house. They give you these black buckets to easily transport the flowers so they keep hydrated.
All the flowers were gorgeous and if you asked me what type of flowers were in there, I wouldn’t be able to tell you.
Overall, we were all happy with the flowers. Their prices are awesome and I was very happy that I didn’t break my budget.
