To save money, I always thought it would be nice to grow your own flowers for your wedding. However…I don’t know is this is practical. Does anyone have any experience with this? Also, what flowers grow/stay alive Fall in Florida? (Thats just a bonus question…hehe).

@Ms.Pink: I’m growing my own flowers, calla lillies, dahlias, and other different types. Sorry I can’t really help with the Florida flowers since I’m not from there, but I’m also having a fall wedding and I’m really excited about doing this to save some money, cuz I’m broke hihi…

You might consider a flowering bush or shrub of some kind, because they will produce many blooms. I’m thinking of gardenias, roses, azalea, hydrangea, lilac, camellias, etc. I don’t know for sure what blooms in Florida . . . maybe hibiscus?

Wow I thought this went unanswered! Thanks guys 🙂
@couawilou: I love dahlias! That sounds like such a beautiful group. How far in advance did you start your garden?
@babylou: Thats a really good idea about the bush! I didn’t think of that! Thank you!!

@babylou: hibiscus blooms only last one day.
@Ms.Pink: you need more than a garden to grow a weddings worth of flowers, a bouquet … maybe. But flowers should all be at the same stage in their bloom if your using them for design. This kind of consistensy is difficult in a small garden.
