DIY Wedding Flowers
Brides have more choices than ever when it comes to wedding arrangements. DIY-savvy brides have even more options.
There are great DIY books and "how to" videos you can use to create a fantastic look, if you are willing to take the time to make the arrangements yourself.
Did you know that you can order fresh flowers in bulk right from the grower's farm? From baby’s breath and hydrangeas to roses, Asiatic and ornamental lilies — you can get breathtaking flowers for a fraction of what you would pay a florist. If you have a friend or family-member with a green thumb, this might be the right choice for you.
Silk flowers are another cost-saving option for brides with an artistic flair. You can take your time arranging the silk flowers, and create flower packages that reflect your own taste. Plus, you never have to worry about what flowers are in season.
After looking at all of the choices out there, you might find the best approach is a mix of traditional and DIY floral arrangements. Consider creating some of the simpler pieces like table arrangements yourself, and hire a florist to make the bouquets and boutonnieres.
