With wedding expenses shooting through the roof, some Brides may choose to take on a few DIY ideas themselves. There are many sites that can help with this. One of them being Pinterest for sure. The DIYer in all of us surely shines with that accessible format.
While some things I advise my Brides not to do, flower arranging can be fun, and if you like to give it a try, it can provide an ample savings for your budget. Please practice as it really isn’t as easy as it may seem. Arranging flowers , centerpieces and bouquets is very time consuming, and messy. I’ve swept up bundles of stems and leaves off my kitchen floor over the years (and I do not call myself a florist). This post is for the Bride on a tight budget, one having a smaller wedding, or one who loves to take the reigns and has access to a local market with beautiful flowers.
Here is a DIY for making your own bouquet, or bouquets for that matter, courtesy of
Love and Lavender.
Now, my mantra is “leave it to the professionals” and I truly believe that this is true. Your wedding day is your day to relax and take in the excitement that is all about you and your groom. Taking on too much will surely leave you wishing you had eloped, but having a beautiful wedding and doing some things yourself is important to some Brides and I understand that.
Share this tutorial with your family and others who may agree to help. Having an experienced and knowledgeable florist is also a good idea too, so please be willing to communicate with several before making the decision to produce your own bouquets. I have several that I love to recommend so contact us for a local source if you feel this is too much to conquer.
