hey cool, i just found this site and it looks pretty interesting.  I registered just to respond to your message.  I’m in SF also and would love to help with your DIY flowers (i’m planning to do my own as well).  I’ve done 3 bouquets for me and my friends for a halloween costume and it turned out pretty well…. hmm can’t figure out how to upload the pic.

would love to share ideas etc for wedding in the SF bay area!

 I sent you a PM. DIY is totally do able and there are a lot of great places to get flowers around the Bay if you do a little research before hand and order them. I did my own flowers for my wedding and I won’t lie, it was work, but it got done and I was happy!

meelahj,

Check out Huckleberry Karen. She’s a florist and she runs a DIY workshop every now and then and shows you how to do flowers for your event. She charges a fee, but it is well worth it IMO.

Definitely second the DIY workshop with Karen.  I went when she last hosted one (March, I think?) and it was so worth it.  It’s an affordable class and you learn so much!  I did my flowers for my wedding (earlier this May) and it was very satisfying for the perfectionist in me πŸ™‚

<span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: #555544; font-family: tahoma; font-size: 13px; line-height: 18px">First, browse a comprehensive list of what is available by season in California- put out by the California Cut Flower Commission.  

Then I suggest going on Localharvest.org to find farms in your area (this is the way to get the most bang for your buck – and fresh, beautiful, seasonal flowers).

I am planning on doing my own flowers too. I searched google for bouquets that I liked and found several. I ordered 70 burgundy and 70 orange calla lilies from flowersandfreshness.com for under $200 and they will be delivered 3 days before the wedding in time for them to hydrate and bloon. I am so excited about doing the flowers ourselves and can’t wait for them to get here. I will definitely post pics once my DIY wedding is all over with.
