Do Your Research

Whether you DIY your wedding flowers or not, you must do your research and decide what kind of flowers and look you want for your wedding. Pinterest is an excellent resource for seeing all the possibilities for your wedding and ways that you can truly make your wedding your own. Also, if you already have a venue booked, look at pictures of weddings that they have hosted and see what kinds of floral arrangements look best with the aesthetic of that particular venue.

Keep It Simple

As you research and decide what kind of wedding flowers you want, remember to keep it simple. Extravagant arrangements can be beautiful, but often simpler is just as beautiful and perhaps even more elegant. Whatever you decide, remember that you will be assembling your bouquets and arrangements on or near your wedding day and so you will most likely not have a lot of time and attention to lend to your wedding flowers. Choose flowers and a look that you know that you can create with the time and help that you have.

 

 

Get Help

Speaking of help! You don’t have to and shouldn’t have to assemble everything by yourself. Instead of trying to do everything yourself, enlist the help of your friends and family. By having them assist you, you can not only alleviate more stress, but you can also enjoy time with those who you love. Those who love you and are excited about your special day will enjoy being a part of your day and together you all can create memories that you will cherish for years to come.

Buy Flowers in Bulk

Buying flowers in bulk will also save you a lot of money in the long run. Wholesale fresh flowers are less expensive than enlisting a local florist and allow you to get beautiful blooms for your wedding at a fraction of the cost of buying flowers from anywhere else. Buying flowers in bulk also gives you the option to have creative control over your bouquet and your floral arrangements.
