Gwendolyn88:  I suggest you do a trial run. Buy grocery store flowers, make up your samples and you will have a better idea how many you will need.

Do a search for boutonniere  on you-tube for tutorials.

Not sure where you are planning to order from but blooms by the box has a DIY flower guide that they offer for free.  They also have great customer service- call and talk them about what you are looking to create and they can guide you on how much you need to order.  They have a lot of other great info on their site for those DIY-ing their flowers.

Gwendolyn88:  Definitely do a trial run in the vases that you’re planning on using 🙂 I did a mock centerpiece and realized that I didn’t need as many flowers in it as I originally thought I would! Every container is different so figure out what works with the ones that you have.

Gwendolyn88:  Go to a craft store and do a mock up with fake flowers.  That’s what I did to estimate how many I needed.  Also, order some extra…  you’ll need them.
