I’ve recently made the decision to DIY my flowers and I’m wondering if anyone has a method for estimating approximately how many flowers one would need.
Here is a list of the arrangements:
1 Bridal Bouquet– round, handtied
1 Maid of Honor bouquet–handtied
2 Bridesmaids bouquets– simple, modern, posy-stle
2 Mother’s Nosegays– a few rather large flowers tied with organza or tulle
6 VIP Corsages– 2-3 flowers & lacy greens
11 Bouts–1 large flower plus leaves
1 Tossing bouquet– A relatively light nosegay that won’t kill anyone
2 Alter Arrangements– Tall vases. I know nothing else because I haven’t bought them yet. Thinking about spray painting leafy magnolia branches gold and securing some type of large white flower.
8 Guest Table Centerpieces–small glass fishbowls, probably 3 curly bamboos shooting out of a nest of roses, gradenia, lisianthius, ranunculus or peonies secured by a grid of clear tape
1 Sweetheart Table Arrangement- one single small lush flower in a tiny glass vase (large arrangement + bouquet + tossing bouque= overkill)
1 Guestbook Table Arrangement–one single small lush flower in a tiny glass vase
1 Bar Arrangement–one single small lush flower in a tiny glass vase
Extra flowers for bridesmaids hair, cake and scattering around centerpiece
