I know I can, but should I?
I am no florist. I appreciate the skill that florists have though their creations are out of my budget for the most part.
I could be all rustic and messy-chic with my bouquet but after seeing small $5 bouqets at even grocery stores, is it that hard to prepare store-bought/farmers’ market flowers?
I won’t have bouquets for a bridal party, just me. I know there’s enough that goes into preparing bouquets that I can see myself not wanting to bother with it but…
…what do you think?!

If you do a few trial runs with good flowers and see how long it takes you and are happy with your results, then by all means make it yourself. It is really easy to get a professional looking bouquet and there are several online tutorials on how to do it. Unless you want something in a shape you wouldn’t be comfortable trying, I say go for it!

I would do a trial run and see how it goes. I diy’ed my centerpieces, but those were simple and didn’t need any arranging. I know I wouldn’t want to have to worry about anything too hard on or the day before my wedding. There’s enough to worry about!

I don;t know, depending on the flowers you want it could be more expensive. My budget is TINY but I made my bouquet a top-priority thing, because I knew I wanted a lovely, full bunch of peonies and roses…

I am doing mine…and it really isn’t as hard as I thought it would be. I followed a video and just took my time. It was actually kind of soothing. I am not sure how soothed I will be on the actually flower making day but…lol! I am doing my bouquet, one Maid/Matron of Honor bouquet, 2 Bridesmaids, 6 large centerpieces, 12 small centerpieces, 5 bots, and 6 corsages. 200 roses total.
Here is my post from the trial run. And I totally agree with everyone on a trial run. It is def a necessity.

I made mine with silk flowers from Hobby Lobby. I had time to mess around and play with them. Also, I’m having a rustic wedding so a ‘messy’ wildflower look works perfect.

I say do a trial run and see how it goes. It could be very good especially if you are the only one having a bouquet. I decided to go with WedIdeas.com. They have beautiful silk flower bouquets for a good price.

I’m obsessed with brooch bouquets which can run up to $1000 – I’m making mine for about $200-300 and here’s a picture of it in progress…please give me some feedback on it, I’d love to hear what people think!
