My mom is set on DIYing the flowers; it is the only thing she has asked for. I’m completely daunted by the idea, but she helped with a cousins wedding flowers a few months ago and flowers are not high on my priory list so if it’s important to her, I’ll concede. I’ll have plenty of woman-power to help assemble.
After reading all the reviews and experiences using fiftyflowers it seems doable, but what I am totally lost on how much to order. I want to order enough white and yellow flowers to make 1 bride bouquet, 4 bridesmaid bouquets, about 8 boutineers, 4 corsages, and 10 (very simple mason jar styled) centerpieces. I’ll be getting married in March so I was thinking daffodils, tulips, ranunculus and billy balls type flowers.
I’m totally lost on how many varieties and quantities to get. I don’t want to under order, but I don’t want to blow my tiny budget on unneeded flowers.
If people who have done DIY have any advice on the quantities they ordered, I’d greatly appreicate it. Thanks!
