You can save 40%, if you do this.
Sam's Club offers no shortage of deals and amazing finds (How about this much-praised $15 non-stick fry pan?). But here's one thing you may not think to hit up Sam's Club for, but should: Fresh flowers. Talisa Otwell, Floral Merchant for Sam’s Club shares the inside scoop.
1. Buy flowers in bulk for big savings.
Throwing a big party or planning a wedding? It pays to do your floral shopping at Sam's Club. "Savings range from 20-40% but can be much higher depending on the variety," offers Otwell.
2. Shop online.

4. They offer hand-made wedding collections online.
"[These collections] are ready to go (think of it as a wedding in a box)," says Otwell. If DIY isn't your thing and you're not hiring a florist for your big day, shop pre-made sets that have you covered from centerpieces and flower petals to bridesmaid bouquets and corsages and boutonnieres.
Some of the biggest flower trends that Sam's Club is seeing for wedding this summer are peonies ("Oversized ruffled blooms, very little accessorizing needed"); “Old–fashioned” Flowers like Chrysanthemums, Dahlias, or sweet peas; Air Plants and Succulents ("Low-maintenance, unusual leaf shapes and blooms"), and Greenery ("This trend started last year and is still going strong. It gives the event a ‘wild’ or ‘natural’ look and is budget friendly!"). Flower crowns, garlands, and flower cakes are also en vogue for 2018 weddings. Browse wedding flowers here.
5. More flowers are available in the Spring than any other time of year.
