Ugh, I couldn’t decide if I should put this in flowers or DIY.
For any ladies that have had a hand in making bouquets and boutonnieres, I’m looking for suggestions on what flowers were easy to work with OR what ones were more hassle then they’re worth.
I’m not in love with any particular flower so I figured I’d narrow things down by what’s easy to work with and afforable. I honestly don’t love anything enough to learn or pay to have it hand wired 🙂

from floral arrangements ive done at my home for the holidays we’ve hosted (thanksgiving, passover, etc), i’ve noticed that tulips are quite temperamental (drooping). just one thing to keep in mind.

I think there are websites that will tell you which are the hardiest. Anemones are the worst of all – avoid like the plague.
Carnations and roses are very sturdy but if you’ve never worked with flowers, I’d suggest having someone who’s done it before help you. It’s a lot of last minute work at a time when you are going to want to be with your family. I knew what I was doing and spent 3 days alone doing all the flowers for one of my best friends. It was exhausting.
