I am not DIY savvy, but I am considering ditching my Florist and going the DIY route with wholesale flowers because it is twice the flowers for 1/2 the price but my Mom has me paranoid about it. What is everyone else doing? I have heard other blogs saying fifty flowers is AWESOME….I need to decide if I am losing my mind (I have changed my mind with my current Florist 3 times, I personally would charge me a nuisance fee!)

Haha! I’m lucky in that we have a family friend who used to do floral arranging. We are ordering all our flowers wholesale, and then she is putting them together. Perfect!

A good idea is to make a practice bouquet or two of what you would like them to look like. Trust me I’m having the same worries. Post how it goes and include pictures!!!
The money you save could go to an amazing honeymoon!!

I am not planning but if I were I would TOTALLY DIY my flowers.
Recently I bought a dozen yellow roses with the orange/dark pink edging (my favorites). After almost a week, they still looked GREAT so I took them out of the vase to change the water. As I was holding them, I was struck by what a GORGEOUS wedding bouquet they would have made. If I’d had any ribbon in my house I would have made it up and took a pic – it looked THAT good.
Go for it! Post pics!

I haven’t decided yet about flowers. I love flowers but they are pretty low on my priority list because I know I can DIY them and I know there are tons of DIY tutorials on weddingbee alone, not to mention other sites. Go for it!

I am definately doing my own flowers. Although, it is a small wedding with only one attendant. But, my plan is to go to Whole Foods bc they have beautiful flowers and it’s almost guarenteed they will be beautiful. I’m just doing a simple bouquet with a ribbon tied around the stems and a smaller one for my Maid/Matron of Honor. I also looked at fiftyflowers and was going to do that as well, but then saw all the beautiful ones at WF and realized I could do it much cheaper that way. But I do also recommend what someone else suggested, which is to make a practice one before you cancel your florist. You can get just a cheap bouquet from the grocery store to get an idea of how difficult it would be. Good luck!!
