@marhino:  Ugh. That’s awful. Is it possible to DIY? I’m considering doing that because professional florists are out of my budget and I don’t want / need anything too complex!

@marhino:  Yeah – at least if you DIY, you have total control over the process. That’s what I’m telling myself 🙂

Too small for Cedar Falls!? Wow, that florist has a mighty opinion of themselves. I would contact hyvee grocery store. Sounds odd but they have amazing floral departments. They did our mom’s bouquets and they were gorgeous and inexpensive.

I contacted a florist in Houston Texas about flowers for my wedding, after I told her I only needed 6 BM bouquets and my bouquet she never responded to any of my emails after that. Sucks that there are vendors out there like this. 


I’m seriously considering DIY my centerpieces/bouquets, or trying a grocery store, is it possible to DIY the flowers?

Ditto what tksjewelry said about trying the local Hy Vee. I got married in Davenport and used them for my very small floral order (1 bouquet, 5 corsages and 5 boutonnières) and they were easy to work with and very budget friendly!

micheals sells little bundles of already arranged fake flowers- they are big enough for bridesmaids. not sure what colors she is wanting but i know there is ivory, blush and light blue bouquts- they are about 8.99 but you add in a coupon for 40% or 50% and its a good deal…
