Hello DIY bees.
do you have any experience of DIY flowers ? I am planning 1x bridal bouquet, 3x bridesmaid bouquet , 10x corsage/buttonholes and table flowers. Is this too ambitious and should I really be considering a florist ? We have planned to get people like bridesmaids to help with the flowers, especially the table flowers.
Do any of you have experience of doing your own flowers and if so what were your thoughts ? What resources did you use to help design and learn t o put together the flowers ?
Any regrets or things you wish you had done differently ? How did they come out on photos and were you happy with the results ? How much time did it take
as an example, here’s a trial bouquet I threw together in about 30minutes – It’s lasted about a week with some wilting – most of the flowers are looking pretty good still though and I would weed out the wilted ones for the real thing. We got them from a local supermarket. We are getting married in March so it will be much cooler and we have a large garage which is essentially a fridge in March .
