Okay hive I need your advice once again 🙂
I’m planning on DIY-ing all of my flowers. I never really gave it a second thought until our day of coordinator mentioned what a bad idea she thought it was. That the stress and hassle was something I really needed to reconsider, especially if I didn’t have a refrigeration unit. Hiring a florist is out of the question because I’ve whittled the flower budget down to $500 which won’t get me far in SoCal.
Our guest list is fairly small with the max being 65. I plan on having 8 centerpieces with 5-6 more vases spread throughout the cake table, gift table, etc. for decoration. I’ve only got three bouquets to assemble including mine and each bouquet will consist of 2-3 different flower types. All the centerpieces will be bunches of a single type of flower, no real “arranging.”
Am I in way over my head?? I originally figured that since my centerpieces are single flower arrangements, all I’m really doing is trimming them and plopping them in the vases. My bouquets are the only thing that will need arranging. What did you bees do to preserve the flowers? Did you need to refrigerate them or keep them in an air conditioned room? Am I in for a world of stress when the day comes to do flowers???
Any help or advice is as always greatly appreciated 🙂 Thanks everyone!
