Hello Bees!! So even though I am getting married May of 2014, I still am looking for inspiration on DIY Flowers for the wedding. My good friend used Bloomsbythebox.com and her flowers turned out gorgeous, so I decided I want to use them too! I have been looking through their gallery, and I came across this picture. Even though these aren’t my colors for my wedding, I really like this. Any other brides who are doing their own flowers for their wedding or have already done their own flowers, have suggestions/comments if this is do-able or some ideas you have for me?? Thanks!!

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!
