- Wedding: May 2013
I got married on May 25, 2013 and did all my centerpieces myself. All flowers was ordered from Global Rose and Miami Dutch. I know a lot of brides worry about how their flowers are going to turn out when they order them online but it’s the same if you have a florist do it and it also depends on what type of flowers you’re looking into using. The flowers I used were carnations, hydrangeas and roses. My colors were kept simple, just green and white. My advice for future DIY brides is to create a spread sheet and do a TON of price comparsion and read all reviews from everyone!!! I loved Global Rose and had no issues with the flowers that I ordered. Miami Dutch has great deals on their flowers but they only deliver locally so it would be wise for you to first contact them and then place an order. Their website doesn’t tell you that they only ship locally so I ordered all my hydrangeas from them and then the owner realized that I wasn’t in Miami and actually in Denver…yikes right?? The owner was actually the sweeatest guy ever!!! He shipped them overnight to me after he realized the mistake so I got them in time for my wedding.
Here’s how my centerpieces turned out.
