AlyssasMom:  I can’t wait to see how everything turns out!  I’m thinking about DIYing as well.  I met with a florist Sunday and was incredibly overwhelmed.  In order to fit the things I need into my moderate budget, she basically wanted to substitute every type of flower I wanted for something else.  If I DIY, I’ll be able to get exactly what I want, albeit with a bit of work.

PS: we did hydrangeas also. Just make sure you keep filling the bucket with water! We found that they sucked up A LOT of water and unfortunately we didn’t pay close enough attention and some sterms weren’t fully touching the water and got very sad looking. Whoops! That’s why we ordered extra lol

I love this! I’m really on the fence about what to do for florals. Please please follow up with the finished look! I’m so curious on how many stems it takes to make an entire centerpiece.

Those look great!!!

I DIY’d my wedding flowers and was THRILLED with the results……..originally I looked at Fifty Flowers and Sams, but didnt’ want to buy an entire box of everything because I wanted a lot of variation.

So…I ended up going with Flower Moxie (http://www.flowermoxie.com) and was thrilled!  I heard about them thru a friend on Facebook.  My favorite part was they will sell by the bunch, which no one else does, instead of having to buy an ENTIRE box.

Basically, they helped me figure out exactally what I needed once I have them the quantity and vase sizes.  I was nervous, but they were spot-on, I only had about two vase fulls extra.  They sent instructions, tools, and they have a lot of DIY videos on youtube.  I was thrilled with the outcome! 

Hope that helps, good luck!!!

Oh, I spend well under $1,000.  My florist quotes were averaging $3,200-4000
