Those are beautiful! I’m wholesaling our centerpiece flowers through a local florist – but I really wish I could do what you did. We just don’t live near a Flower Market like that . . . amd I’m a June 21 bride, too! Happy summer solstice wedding!

Gorgeous!  Such a great money saver. I did this, too, only on a smaller scale. Recently I helped a friend with a project as large as yours (spent 800$ on flowers,supplies, vases)   flowers also LA floeer Mart.   we almost bit off more than we could chew and it led to a very stressful wedding morning. Make sure you have PLENTY of help, are organized,  etc.

Those look amazing! You really blended the colors and textures well.

I love the LA flower market, but be warned on a summer saturday you are going to want to shop around 7am or earlier to get the best selection (the professional florists all go through around 5am)

We also bought flowers from LA flower market to make our own bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres. Mine didn’t turn out as nice as yours though! The corsages were hardest part. Definitely allot enough time and help, we spent all day before putting all the flowers together.

They’re beautiful… I wish there was a flower market like that here in the Tampa area.  But there’s nothing like that here

This is such a good idea! I have driven through the flower district sooo many times, usually on my way to the fashion district, heh. I originally wasn’t going to have any flowers but my mom really wants centerpieces and I am sure she will get a kick out of shopping for them downtown. the flowers should keep in water if we buy them Friday and use them Sat morning, right?

Love your bouquet.  It looks very similar to my daughter’s.  Hers had pinecones added since it was a winter wedding.
