- Wedding: October 2010
This sounds ridiculous, but I’m having a really hard time finding flowers I like. I’m not a super huge flower love and I don’t have any specific flowers I *have* to have on wedding day. We aren’t using a lot of flowers in our wedding and our centerpieces will not be flowers either. Since we’ll only have a few bouquets and a few bouts to do, we are not hiring a florist and instead I want to DIY my flowers. We don’t want to spend more than a few hundred on flowers.
I can’t seem to find anywhere online that sells flowers in small bundles rather than huge bulk orders. For example, I may want 3 kinds of flowers, but only like 20 stems of each. Not 100 stems of each and I can’t seem to find anywhere that sells them wholesale in small quantities.
Another thing is that I like taller flowers (snapdragons, wildflowers, etc.) while my fiance seems to prefer rounder one (hydranges, etc.). I want us both to be happy with the selection.
The one thing be both like are succulents, but it seems like building 3 bouquets and making like 8 bouts out of succulents might be a nightmare and really labor intensive. Plus, I don’t know where I can order a lot of succulents online in various sizes, shapes and colors. How long does it take to make a succulent bouquet?
UGH. I am so fed up with flowers!!! I just want a decision made that offers us some variety and is inexpensive and can be ordered online. Why is this such a headache!?
