i think that’s a good idea; i would just practice a few times before so you get the hang of arranging and tying them together. you don’t have to practice with the same types of flowers – just get whatever’s cheapest.

I agree with @kitzy:. Maybe you should practice a couple of times on random flowers just in case. Sometimes, putting flowers together can be more stressful than expected.

If my mom didn’t care about flowers I definitely would have done this. And worse(?) yet, I probably wouldn’t have even done it myself. I would’ve just assigned a bridesmaid or someone to run to the grocery store for whatever looks fresh, buy two bunches, and tie-em together with some ribbon. 

But then again, I’m not picky and I don’t care about flowers 🙂 


I’m not actually doing this because my mom cares about flowers– a LOT. So I just outsourced the task to her and she is doing whatever.

I think it’s a good idea. I wouldn’t be surprised if we did it too!

If you are good at crafty projects and you honestly believe you will be able to make a really nice bouquet go for it. But if you are not confident I would do a trial run.

I’m not really planning mine. My officiant takes care of them, so i’m going to send her a few inspiration pics and tell her that i want a white and blue bouqet, no roses, and that’s all. Then the florist can choose any flowers she likes, i don’t care. The only thing that’s important to me is the color.

I kind of did not plan my bouquet! I ordered my bouquet from a local florist. I did not have any wedding colors, so I just told them to make me something colorful. I had no idea of what flowers and colors it would have in advance. It was much prettier than I expected!

I only half planned mine – I told my florist the two main flowers I wanted for the wedding (red roses and white lilies) and then said go!  I let him do all the design work, the filler flowers, etc and saw nothing until I showed up at the wedding.  He did an amazing job!

So not quite what you’re describing but still.  It definitely doesn’t have to be planned down to the last detail so if the color/type of flowers aren’t a big deal to you, I think your idea sounds great!

Let me tell you girl, it’s a great idea!I’ve toyed with it too but I want a certain flower which the store won’t have. But really, just go with it! What matters that day is him and you, the flowers will be great no matter what. My good friend went to the farmers market the day before and bought buckets of fresh flowers. We put them together the day before and they turned out gorgeous!
