Although I'm not familiar with flowers and never bought flowers from florist, I'm wanting to DIY my flowers for my wedding (my bouquet, bridesmaid, corsages and buttonholes) to save myself some $$$.
I have been searching for flowers market or wholesaler (who could offer a lower price than ordinary florist), but no luck! 99% of them only sell to florists and not to public. I only managed to find one website that sell individual / bunches of flowers online. But I'm hoping I could find one that I could actually go and visit to have a look.
So, does anyone know of any flower market or wholesalers in Melbourne that actually sell to the public (preferably near the eastern or south eastern suburbs)? I quite often read that people get their flowers from "market", so where exactly are these markets?
For your info, I'm mainly after lavender and roses.
I am getting married in January and refuse to pay the cost of "wedding" bouquets from a florist. We are on a very tight budget. My florist where I can get a small posie at a cheap $18 price will be closed on8th January and I want to know where in Melbourne there is a flower market selling
to the public. If anyone can help I would much appreciate it.
