An orchid bouquet can be expensive to purchase from a florist. The price can be even higher if several flower arrangements are needed. When you need to make a bouquet or flower arrangement you can use an orchid supply to purchase the flowers that are needed. An orchid supply is like a wholesaler. The orchid supply will have the flowers you need at an affordable price.
After you have decided what color orchids you will need, you can visit the orchid supply to purchase the orchids. You can use a local directory or the Internet to find a supply near you. The orchid supply will more than likely have other flowers that can be used in the flower arrangement as well. Select flowers and greenery that complement the color of the orchids, the colors used for the events, and the colors of any other flower arrangements that will be used.
Make sure the orchid supply will have the flowers available for purchase in advance of the event. It could be disastrous for the flowers not to be ready when they are needed. You could end up paying extra to a florist to expedite the arrangement of the flowers and the bouquets. When you are purchasing the orchids and other flowers, it is a good practice to purchase a few extra just in case. If you do not end up using the extra flowers, they can be used as corsages or added into other arrangements.
Once all the flowers have been purchased for the arrangement, you can begin putting them together in a way that looks attractive. Avoid having too much of one color in the bouquet. Add in greenery and fillers to make the bouquet appear fluffy without using too many flowers. For the freshest look possible, assemble the bouquet or flower arrangement as close to the day of the event as possible.
