Okay, so doing my own centerpieces will save me about 500$ (I refuse to use silk, I just can’t do it) but I’m so scared I’ll just mess it all up! I have never arranged flowers besides just ones from FI… I keep going back and forth over whether its worth the money :/

@kingytobe: I’m doing my own, but I won’t be using flowers. I say try a couple arrangements and then decide.

Good luck. It’s worth the money saved, but for me I’ll be candles, which saves even more!
$60 for candleholders
$10 for silk petals
Candles- free, I already have a TON of tealights!

@kingytobe:Flowers can really be tedious. If you can afford it, have them professionally done. Its your wedding day. Relax.

I did my own, and it was super easy. I used just one kind of flower so there was no arranging. All we had to do was cut the flowers and stick them in a vase.

Why don’t you try doing a trial? So that you have a better sense of how long it will take and if you like your own work? If you have a ton of centerpieces to arrange, $500 might be worth spending at a florist.

I agree with infinityplus2. I just did a trial of my centerpieces last night and the hardest thing was prepping the flowers and figuring out the lengths to cut. If you are wanting simple arrangements, you can definitely DIY. However, if you want something more elaborate, you probaby should hire a florist.
