Should I DIY my wedding flowers?

by DIY wedding planner on December 20, 2011

I am considering doing my own flowers. This could turn out to be a sloppy nightmare or a wonderful money-saving life saver! Luckily, I found a tasteful, simple (and easy!) centerpiece idea. I am not artsy, crafty, or organized. Please give honest opinions! Here is a link to my idea:

Thank you kindly for your time! :)
I apologize, I realized Yahoo posted my question in home & garden, when I thought I clicked weddings.

No worries. Replicating a centerpiece like that will save you money and time. The flowers are Calla Lillies and you can find them at a farmers market in the spring and summer or order them in from a florist. I imagine you can locate a similar glass vase from many sources. I’d check out Pier 1 or Target or places like that. Ordering from a florist is going to be a bit more expensive, but getting them from a farmer’s market should be no more than $60 depending on the quantity you get.

My partner and I are constructing a “living center-piece” similar to the one shown with succulents we are going to plant and construct with driftwood we collected for a wedding this June.

With keeping it simple (flowers, vases, and water) you won’t have to stress much, but you’re going to have a lot of things on your mind the day of your wedding, so make the arrangements the night before! Thumbs up from me. Go for it.

You need a much taller vase.

Depends how tight your funds are. I recommend not trying it unless you have to. Too many things to worry about going wrong, why burden yourself unless you have to?

I am not saying you cannot do this..I am saying that you need help…enlist the help of friends to make the centerpieces! You will be so busy the day of the wedding, you will not have the time to do any of this. Do not ruin your wedding by trying to produce your own centerpieces…better to have none than be miserable.
