I want to follow your posts bc we also plan to DIY our flowers. We are doing hydrangeas,  because, well I love hydrangeas, but also bc they are very full/large blooms, and we wont really need filler or arranging expertise. You wrap a few together, and they look pretty! I do know that some flowers are much more water dependent and need to be kept cool/in water etc . (The hydrangeas need to be kept in water as much as possible to avoid wilting etc) But many flowers are much hardier…

We will be doing white & blue from Costco most likely… I am a little apprehensive of doing boutonneirres though; so we may purchase those… what will you be doing for bouts’ and corsages?…

I’ll do my own flowers and I’ve started to practice already. After two trials, I’ve come to the realisation that I should keep things on the same level as I’ve a hard time getting things even otherwise. Trial 1:

Trial 2 – made me decide that I should stick to two colours (apart from green), it gets too messy otherwise.

My best advice – practice!
