DIY Wedding Bouquets: Flower Power Step-by-Step

DIY Wedding Bouquets DIY Wedding Bouquets

I will never forget the sight of the laundry room floor the night before my wedding. It was  COVERED with flower stems, leaves and petals! In fact, the stark white vinyl flooring was barely visible beneath the greenery. And this was at midnight! My mother, my maid of honour, and I had spent the better part of the evening creating the floral centerpieces for my wedding. Thanks to some beautiful wholesale flowers and my talented mom, they turned out beautifully. (Without my mom’s help we would have be lost amongst the stems and leaves.)

DIY flowers can save you a bundle. But not everyone has a family member or friend adept at floral design. That’s where Real Simple’s Wedding Flowers: How to Create Beautiful Bouquets from Supermarket Flowers comes in. The article provides some great visuals on how to create your own wedding bouquets. Carnations never looked so good! Check it out.

    Great idea! Most couples will be trying to save as much as possible when planning their wedding. The Bride/Groom may not have time to do this themselves but perhaps a parent or friend could do the honors.

    Fantastic! I volunteered to do just this for my friend's wedding at the end of April, then had a panic about it...this has totally restored my confidance - Can't wait to get experimenting with some ideas!

    Diy wedding flowers are my favorite topic! Thanks for the info. In case anyone should want to know, there are lots of books, videos and even classes at community classes that can help the diy bride with arranging their own wedding flowers. Good luck to all the do it yourselfers!
