My friend who is coming over from the US will be doing my wedding flowers in under 3 weeks. We still can't find a decent wholesale florist. They seem to way overcharge. Any reccomendations? Anyone know what prices would be average? Its getting stressful esp for my friend who can't even look forward to coming over for her first holiday here or look forward to the wedding because she's so worried about the flowers. (She has done over a hundred weddings but always in the States).

My SIL's Hubbie's mother does flower arrangements for churches she use Eirflowers just outside Naas in Toughers Industrial Estate not sure if this would suit as you don't say where your based. There trade only but I think you can buy from them if you spend over €120 not sure though so your probably better off ringing them :wv

If you are in Dublin why not just go into the flower market? I would think they would be the best value you can get.
