I am using Bloomsbythebox.com! Check them out! They have great blog posts and tutorial videos on how to put everything together, I am sure you can always call them, they seem really friendly on the phone. My cousin used them for her wedding and it all came out so gorgeous!!! Good luck!

@lawbride88:  I don’t have them personally, but I suggest looking at pinterest.com, there are gorgeous flowers on there, BloomsByTheBox has pretty much everything, all you need to do is pick out the flowers and go from there.. What are the color themes of your wedding/bridesmaid dress colors, you want something that will contrast nice with the colors/dresses

This was the trial for my centerpiece.  For the real thing I used more flowers and curly willow branches.  it was super easy to do.  I got the vases from either HomeGoods or the Christmas Tree Shop.  I even used one of vase I got from a friend’s wedding centerpiece.  I did not really care if they match.  I ordered by flowers in bulk from a local florist so I got some discount.  I also used Bloomsbythebox for some of the flowers for cocktail hours and bouquets.  They were fine and delivered on the specified date.  For my centerpiece I use Peruvian Lilies (aka Astromeras).  I made all 14 centerpieces the day before the wedding.  The most difficult part of the whole thing was transporting them because they were so tall (most were 4 ft).  Luckily we have a friend with a van!  But anyway, the same idea can be modified to a short centerpiece as well.  The curly willow branches helped to hold the arrangement in place.  I did not have any flower-arranging experience prior to the wedding. Good luck 🙂
