I know this is a long shot and I may not get any answers but Im desperate!!

My brother rung me this morning to tell me he is getting married on Wednesday!! We have known it was coming for a while now but Im still really excited.

I have never met his wife to be but have spoken to her often on the phone and we email regularly. Shes a lovely girl and Im so happy shes joining our family.

I would like to send her some flowers for the morning of their wedding. I have spent most of the day on the internet trying to find a good internet florist that doesnt cost the earth.

Does anyone have any recommendations? I know they can sometimes be a bit hit and miss and I would really like her to have something nice .

They live in Brissie if that makes any difference and I will be ordering from the UK.

Thanks in advance girls!! wub.gif


ps my next task is to find something for her daughter to welcome her to our family also. Three year olds like braclets right??

I would suggest to go directly through a florist in their area. Maybe look at the yellow pages online and see if any of the local florists have websites so you can check out their work.
Don't use a flower network like Interflora or Petals etc because you'll find a fair bit of your money is spent on fees/delivery and you end up with something a less than you expected for the price.

i second this. i used to work at a florist during uni days. it is usually a lot cheaper and a better range if you ring a local florist in their area.

Dont use interflora or florsit network.

They have a charge on top of what you spend so that $15, $20 could be spent on a nicer bouquet.

Perhaps start a post asking local girls of a good local florist and as long as you have a CC ring the florist direct.

Roses Only have been good in the past, although expensive!

I went with Roses Only in the end as I just had to get them there. They were pretty exxy but I hope they are worth it I will post a pic when she gets them. I know she will take a photo!!

Thank you all for your responses very much appreciated. x
