I will be doing the same thing! I LOVE the LA flower mart, been there plenty of times. Make sure you check it out to get familiar with it ahead of time, and bring buckets of water in a cart to keep the flowers fresh while you’re shopping around.

For a Saturday wedding, it’s just fine to assemble your flowers on Friday. Often they look better the next day when the heads open up a bit. Any wilted flowers can be picked out the next day and you won’t notice any empty spots.

eHow has some videos on bouquet and boutonniere construciton, check them out. Get familiar with floral tape and practice. 

 If your wedding is soon, PM me and I’d love to help you out for free! Arranging flowers is a hobby of mine, and I don’t get to do it all that often. I’ve done some fundraisers/proms/etc.
