Maybe you're crafty, determined to be individual or trying to save some cash, there are many reasons one may choose to DIY when it comes to your wedding flowers and decor. Although I would highly recommend hiring a professional if you want to decrease your stress level and enjoy the few days right before your event. That being said I can understand the DIY bride, in fact I was one. I designed my own flowers(I used silk so I could make them ahead of time), made my own favors, planned out all the decor and had friends handle the setup, I even printed my own invites, all in attempt to have a beautiful wedding on a small budget. In my case everything did work out and it can for you too. Here are a few tips and ideas for some easy DIY flowers and decor.
-Make a practice bouquet/arrangement to see how long it will take to make and how long the flowers will last. This will help you decide how soon ahead the designs can be made but still make sure you will have time to finish.
-Choose tough, hardy flowers to make your job easier. Roses, calla lilies, mums, carnations and babies breath are a few good ones. You will want to avoid gardenias, stepanotis and asiatic lilies, they are far more difficult to work with.
Check out the examples below. These are all things we feel would be rather easy DIY projects for your event. Have your own ideas but don't know how or where to start? In need of DIY flowers or supplies? Contact us. We are here to help.
