Diy Wedding Flowers


There is no right or wrong way to go about doing your flowers for your wedding.

You can find a respected florist in your area, find fake flowers and bouquets, or dry ones, you can buy wholesale, grow your own if you have a green thumb, pick your own wild flowers and more. The possibilities are truly endless.

But I am going to tell you about my favorite affordable way to use real flowers for your wedding day! This is also exactly what I did for my own wedding and what I recommend to all my brides who are trying to save some money!

I will say, this way does add more work onto your plate or your designated flower person. So although you’re saving on cost it does cost you a little bit of time. If you love DIY’s this is 100% for you.

Order your flowers in bulk from Sams Club or Costco or event better a flower farmer in your area.

Thats the big secret.

Both big box stores sell bulk flowers and offer a multitude of types and colors.

I suggest ordering them at least a month or two ahead of time, and if you want a specific flower and its not available when you look, I would keep checking back because it changes very often!

When ordering make sure to schedule the delivery time two – three days before your event date. So if your wedding is on a Saturday make sure to have them deliver them either Wednesday or Thursday. This gives them time to open up!

When the flowers get delivered, they will be in an enclosed box. You have to make sure you have buckets filled with water ready to go to put them all in. Keep them in a dark/cool area if possible.

I have uploaded a video on how to open up roses and make a bouquet so be sure to check that out!

I am so excited for your big day and please send me some diy photos! I love seeing what all the couples out their own touches on their weddings!
