I was on a wedding blog and I saw a useful note about Wedding Flowers. The New Covent Garden Flower market sells flowers at whole sale prices and some brides go there to buy flowers. One of the brides said she bought flowers worth 40 pounds and it filled up her car. That is an absolute bargain considering that many people spend up to 500 pounds for flowers for their wedding.
These are bonquets but could also look good as table main piece decorations:
The only bummer about the New Covent Garden market is that the market opens extremely early in the morning Monday – Friday 3-11.00 am and saturdays from 4.00 to 10.00 am. One of these days, Im going to visit and have a look.
Some information about the market:
New Covent Garden Flower Market is where the florists go, meaning that you can buy flowers, plants and foliage at wholesale prices. There are fresh daily deliveries from abroad as well as a full range of English produce available with 55 companies setting up camp at death o’clock (3am) every weekday morning (traders have a lie-in and don’t get there till 4am on Saturdays) to sell their stock. The selection is vast but that’s half the fun as you let your imagination run wild with colours and styles to make your own lush bouquet full of your favourite flowers. You can only purchase products by the box or bunch but buying in bulk is such good value, making this the perfect place to visit if you’re throwing a posh party or organising an elegant event and want to decorate the venue with beautiful floral displays.
