So, since my florist has stopped responding to me, I’ve decided to do my own bouquets for our wedding. My wedding planner has some experience doing these, but I wanted to see some pics of other brides that have done their own flowers. Our colors are pink and aqua, but there aren’t really any aqua flowers so I think I’m going with all pink. I just want to see some ideas of arrangements and types of flowers. I was thinking really full flowers for mine like garden roses, peonies, hydrangea, etc. But I want to see anything really, and all colors! Thanks so much!! 🙂

Heck yes you can! I made my own as a trial an error two days ago. $19.00, Trader Joes. Imagine how special it will feel to know you did it and it turned out great.
Look for the first DIY bouquet….. It turned out lovely. I, quite excited to make the real ones.

I made my own for my civil ceremony two weeks ago. It took about half an hour (the hardest part was tying the ribbon). It cost me about $35 with flowers leftover. I am sure it would have been cheaper with wholesale flowers.

@MrsHRC: wow, that is gorgeous! I would never think that was DIY!
@Lola-Poodle: yours is under the diy section? Or in the boards? I’d love to see your pic!

I crafted all the bouquets!

Depends of course on the style of your wedding, but it was really fun!

@Misscandice8907: Thanks! Honestly, it was pretty easy. I don’t know if we will do it for our wedding – my mother really doesn’t want to so I am thinking of having the BMs just have baby’s breath bouquets. I might change my mind and just do their bouquets and leave the centerpieces (the bit I think is stressful…) and my bouquet to a florist.
If the idea stresses you, have you thought about seeing hwat kind of deal Whole Foods or Safeway can do for you? Both groceries do gorgeous flowers for weddings and I am waiting on quotes from them right now.
