Hi gals –
I’ve been a creepily stalking the boards without registering for months, but I think I’m finally ready to start joining the conversations 😉
For our October wedding, I have a florist for all bouquets and a variety of decor, but the centerpieces I wanted to take on myself (well, I’m getting tons of help from my sisters, mom and FMIL).
I’m looking at ordering real, dried flowers and branches online (nettleton hollow, driedflowersdirect), and potentially ordering a small amount of real flowers (hydrangeas) from a ‘farm’ in California.
I was wondering if anyone has had experience with DIY centerpieces, working with dried flower centerpieces, and/or ordering fresh flowers online. Any advice is welcome!!

It really all depends on what you want to do. I am using some dried accents for my october wedding with fresh flowers. I am using 2 half gallon mason jars accented with ribbon tied in a square knot bow in all shades and patterns of my wedding colors tied on each one, with fresh in season wild flowers, and some of the twisted spiral glitter picks you pick up at any craft store, and then 2 pint mason jars decorted with ribbon as well and fresh flowers to add some demention, and then 4-5 pint mason jars with tea light candles in them. Also my name cards are paper flowers with rhinestones in the center with the names on the leaves of the flower so there will also be two larger paper flowers with the table number on each table.

No experiece here, but I wanted to add a possible website for dried flowers… save-on-crafts.com. I ordered dried lavender from them for our bouquets and they were inexpensive and fast delivery.
