Insanely Simple Wedding Flower Tips
Don’t be afraid to take this on just recruit help to put together your own flowers for the big day.
Buy your flowers at a local flower mart or at local shopping stores like Costco.
Have a dry run before the big day you plan on putting them all together.
Put together all your flowers the day before the wedding (except for boutonnieres they need to be done the day of the wedding)
Remember to have all the necessary supplies: Floral tape, floral scissors, floral foam and pins.
Store flowers in a fridge or cool basement
When you pick out of season flowers your cost will be much more than seasonal flowers. Also stay away from rare flowers to save even more.
Silk flowers can be beautiful and will last way past the day of your wedding and as a added bonus you don’t have to worry about them wilting.
If you decide to go with a florist think about going smaller on your arrangements. A cascading bouquet will cost a lot more than a simple smaller one. Also consider who really needs flowers at your wedding. Cut down on centerpieces and floral arrangements but substituting candles, photo’s and lights.
Some of the best bouquets I’ve seen are not made of flowers but other objects like vintage jewelry, buttons, silk roses and fabric flowers. What is it that you love? Can you make a bouquet out of it? Think unique and you’ll have a bouquet people will talk about long after your wedding.
