DIY Wedding Flowers

Planning diy wedding flowers is one way to make a big saving on your wedding budget. The key to success is being sensible about what you can take on. Whether you make your own wedding bouquets or just a few diy wedding decorations , it will save you money and add a personal touch to your big day that you don't always get from buying everything in.

My passion for flowers truly started when I made my own wedding flowers but I won't pretend it wasn't hard work!

If you are having a medium to large size wedding, making wedding flowers the day before the ceremony might be one extra detail too many. While it may be cost effective, it could put you in a time crunch.

Rehearsals, greeting out of town guests and relatives, decorating the reception hall and the church and confirming seating arrangements are just a few of the things that will be on your to do list the day before your wedding.

For brides that want fresh flower bouquets and blooming table decorations, but the budget won't allow it, find some middle ground. Have a professional florist arrange the wedding bouquets, and you and your bridesmaids can get to work on the centerpieces. This allows for elegant fresh carrying bouquets, plus personalized decorations your guests can take home, and lowers the overall cost of your wedding flowers.
