I made the bold choice to DIY my centrepieces with flowers from Costco. Now I’m freaking out. When do I need to buy the flowers? How do I store them? What if they wilt? TOTAL. FREAKOUT. Is it worth the DIY or should I get my florist to just do the centrepieces herself?? Anyone who has experience in this department, please let me know how/what you did!

OKAY- don’t freak out, this is totally doable. First of all, when is your wedding? I did the flowers for my BIL’s wedding, and we did everything the day before, but would have been fine doing them two days before and leaving them in a cool room with water. Just make sure that when you go, you are getting flowers that look fresh, and aren’t on their way out.

I’m planning on doing this… but my centerpieces will be a single gerbera daisy in a bottle so I’ll just be buying a pack of 50 daisies that I plan to have delivered the Tuesday or Wednesday before my wedding. I’ll unpack them at home and keep them in a bucket of water in the basement (cool & some light). We’ll be decorating with them on Friday.

LOL, you’re a hot mess!!! You’re gonna do just fine!
I DIY’d my wedding flowers and was THRILLED with the results……..originally I looked at Fifty Flowers and Sams, but didnt’ want to buy an entire box of everything because I wanted a lot of variation.
So…I ended up going with Flower Moxie (http://www.flowermoxie.com) and was thrilled! I heard about them thru a friend on Facebook. My favorite part was they will sell by the bunch, which no one else does, instead of having to buy an ENTIRE box.
Basically, they helped me figure out exactally what I needed once I have them the quantity and vase sizes. I was nervous, but they were spot-on, I only had about two vase fulls extra. They sent instructions, tools, and they have a lot of DIY videos on youtube. I was thrilled with the outcome!
Hope that helps, good luck!!!
Oh, I spend well under $1,000. My florist quotes were averaging $3,200-4000
