Do you need a florist, no, not really. 

You can DIY, but you will need to look at your day of timeline and figure out if you have the time to do it.  You will also need to expariment and see if you can do it yourself.  It’s not a DIY item you can make the Sunday before your Saturday wedding and have it still work. 

I think with a grocery store, you will find the prices will be similar to what a florist can do for you.  They also may or may not have what you want in stock.  I would talk to your local store and see what they normally do.  You are likely not the only bride they have, and it likely will look quite like going to a flowris.  Espeically if you are using Hy-Vee.  They like to be on par with a proffesional flowrist, including prices.

you can absolutely do it through a grocery store or large club store like sam’s – i’ve heard good things! i actually found a lady on etsy who does dried florals and am having all my bouts and bouquets made from dried lavender and other dried items, and my centerpieces will be birdcages with artifical flowers arranged inside by my super crafty mother 🙂

you can do whatever you want – that’s the most fun part!

You don’t need a florist, but you do need someone (who isn’t you) to be in charge of picking them up and getting them to where they need to go.
