I’m planning on DIYing the flowers for my wedding. A question to those who have done their own flowers, or plan on doing their own: how do you know how many flowers to buy? I’ve done some online searching and made a list of my best guess of what I think I’ll need below. Any feedback would be appreciated!
1 Bridal bouquet approx 36 flowers
1 toss bouquet approx 12 flowers
2 Bridesmaids bouquets approx 24 flowers each
10 bouts 10 flowers total
4 corsages 12 flowers total
2 altar arrangements approx 30 flowers each
For a grand total of 180 flowers, plus greens and fillers. Does this seem right?
I plan on using flowers like roses and carnations, nothing big like peonies or sunflowers. Also, I would rather overbuy than underbuy…but I don’t want to have too many extra flowers lying around!
Thanks in advance for your help!
