I made my own bouquets and centerpieces.  I used fresh flowers from Costco. Before you invest a significant amount of money I recommend purchasing enough for just one bouquet and making a practice bouquet to see if/how you like it. Afloral. Com has some beautiful fake flowers

idoswiththecantus:  There are awesome youtube videos on this and as PP said, costco is a great place to get flowers. Seems easy to do and many nail it on their first try. I say go for it.

Yes I am doing this. Well mostly my sister who volunteered but I’m obviously helping. We’re using real flowers and are doing a trial in a few weeks. We’re doing all the bouquets, boutineers and reception flowers so it’s a big job but so worth it for the cost saving and flexibility plus I’m sure it will be fun too!

We DIYed all of our florals with real flowers… totally worth it.

I did – using about $6 worth of grocery store flowers. 🙂 We eloped outside, so these flowers made perfect sense for me. I didn’t even need flowers, but wanted a bouquet of sorts for pictures. Nothing fancy – very casual and wildflower-ish.

I just made this for my brides maids. I am going to do a brouch bouquet for myself. I know Michaels was having a sale this weekend with 40% off all silk flowers. I have a butterfly them.

I did my bouquet, BM’s boquets, boutineers and centerpieces with silk flowers mostly from Michaels, and bougght ons sale or with coupons. If you do silk flowers, you will need wire cutters, floral tape, ribbon, any other decorative things you are adding and possibly floral wire. I also needed foam, since my BM’s bouquets were in containers. A glue gun would also help with securing ribbons. Mine had briiches as well, so I had to find those. Some I already had, some I antiqued and some were just from craft stores.

I am pretty crafty and have done silk floral arranging for wedding before, so this was not my first time.

I went with Flower Moxie, http://www.flowermoxie.com and had a good experience.  They were fresh, and I found it cheaper than using silks from Hobby Lobby.  

My friend used Sam’s Club, roses, and they were nice and cheap, but not a lot of variation.

I am doing an all brooch bouque it’s almost finished. I love the fact that it has brooches form so many people. I borowed most of the brooches. It is heavy though.
