Whether you’re trying to plan a wedding on a tight budget or you simply want a unique and personalized wedding experience, DIY wedding flowers are a great idea.
Creating your own floral arrangements involves a bit of work, but there are several advantages to consider.
1. You’ll get more for your money.
Hopefully, you’ve set a budget for your wedding and you know how much you have to spend on flowers. Whatever amount that may be, check local florists’ prices and ask a few questions about what you can expect to afford on your budget.
Now, take a look at what you could buy if you used your budget dollars to purchase wholesale wedding flower favorites and a few bouquet or centerpiece accessories you can arrange yourself.
You’ll be amazed at how much further your bouquet budget will go if you opt to handle your flower displays yourself.
2. You can trim back your wedding budget substantially.
If saving money on your wedding is a top priority, floral arrangements are a great place to start. You don’t have to skimp on wedding flowers if you buy wholesale and create your own beautiful arrangements yourself.
3. You can add a personalized element to your wedding.
It’s true that florists will personalize your floral arrangements by color, type of flower, texture or design. However, what’s more personal than floral arrangements you create yourself?
If you’re helping someone else plan their wedding, creating unique displays and arrangements can be a wonderful gift the bride and groom will treasure and guests are sure to notice and appreciate.
4. You can put the “fun” back in wedding preparations.
Too often, wedding planning and preparations become an agonizing chore instead of joyful and exciting experiences. When you opt to manage aspects like wedding flowers yourself, you bring the focus of wedding preparations back where it belongs – with you, your family and friends.
Getting together to create floral arrangements and displays is a fun time for everyone involved, and the results are much more meaningful than a bunch of displays that are delivered.
The key to success with DIY wedding flowers is to plan ahead and start shopping early. It’s surprisingly easy to find free advice, tips and guidelines on what flower types work well together for wedding displays. You can also easily find someone who has either natural talent for flower arranging or perhaps some experience to help design and teach you how to create gorgeous bouquets, centerpieces and other arrangements.
