- Wedding: April 2016
Hi my little bees! I am a crafter and I’m looking to DIY most of the flowers for my wedding next April. My wedding venue and my reception venue are both gorgeous on their own, so I’m not needing a grand amount. I am thinking about simple baby’s breath bouqets for my bridesmaid’s as well as for the pew ends in the chapel – I MAY order my bouquet, but as of this moment that’s about it. I plan to reuse everything for both venues. I would love to have “extra” flowers for the reception, that I could place individual flowers in tiny vases on the reception tables (I’ll include a picture to explain as I feel that possibly didn’t make any sense). I don’t want your run-of-the-mill grocery store flowers, but I love the wildflower look along with higher-end flowers (peonies, ranunculous, anemonies, etc.) My budget is tight but I’m quite picky! 🙂 My question is, what are your recommendations for ordering/receiving flowers for a DIY wedding? Is Sams Club or Costco a good option? How does one gain access to floral warehouses? What about other sources/websites? I live in the Atlanta area and need all the help I can get!
