@TiffanyMM:  There are many websites that have details on how to make your own bouquets and arrangements so I wont elaborate here.

What I would do though, is buy yourself a dozen roses or so and practice, practice, practice way before your wedding to make sure that this is actually feasible for you to do a few days before your wedding.

actually…the bridal bouquet should be made hours before the ceremony for it to look its best…especially with roses

I made the bouquets and arragements the day before the wedding, and it was perfect! Just don’t wrap your bouquets until the day of (and make the bouts day of as well). You basically want to keep everything in water for as long as possible – they will wilt if you leave them out for too long.

I don’t know the best online places to buy flowers wholesale, but I’d definitely recommend checking out local flower marts. They have INSANE deals, and you can go and pick everything out and make sure it’s fresh and exactly what you want. I went to the SF Flower Mart and cannot recommend it enough. I bought probably twice as many flowers as I needed for $300, and they were all gorgeous!
