Beautiful flowers, great customer service!
I wanted to make my own flowers because I knew I'd be proud and in love with them if I did. I have to say, I definitely underestimated the effort required to make bouquets. It is for sure a lot of work, but thankfully Kukka makes it easy to at least order the correct quantities, specifies the other supplies needed, and provides bouquet arrangement videos which are all very helpful. I ordered the small Merlot package along with an extra bridesmaids bouquet and flower crown plus extra white roses. Customer service was amazing and they were able to add a bouquet a couple weeks before my wedding, and gave me advice regarding swapping out flowers (I wanted dahlias instead of carnations and they said they can accommodate it, but that dahlias are much more delicate. I took their advice and was happy that I did!). I ended upSent on 10/17/2019
with a lot of leftover greenery and roses in the end so I probably didn't need the extra roses. To start, everything arrived very well packaged and the flowers arrived barely wilted. I was worried about how much space I'd need since I live in a small apartment in Manhattan. Thankfully, the 5 buckets I needed (which I ordered from Home Depot) all fit nicely on my dining table. Flowers took about 24 hours to hydrate and open up. I prepped the flowers by stripping them in advance and that saved me a lot of time when it came to arranging the bouquets. My mother in law and a bridesmaid helped me make the bouquets the night before. It definitely requires at least two people. Like other reviewers have said, the first bouquet takes the longest because you need to play around with different arrangements and combinations before you find one that works for you. I was going for more of a home made look so I was ok with diversity in my bouquets. All in all, I'd say each bouquet took 20-30 minutes (I made 6 bridesmaids bouquets and 1 bridal) with the bridal bouquet taking more like an hour. We made a night of it and it was actually pretty fun, but definitely a substantial amount of work. If you live in a small apartment like I do, definitely prep in advance. It will save you time and will make cleaning up much easier after you're done. The flowers were very beautiful and everyone was surprised that I assembled the bouquets myself! I highly recommend going this route if you're a DIY person but don't want to stress about quantities/combinations of flowers. Also just a tip since I'm not sure how many other people do this, but I repurposed the bridesmaids bouquets at dinner as table flowers! I had a very small intimate wedding so it worked well.

Kukka was super easy to work with and determine which package was the right fit. I went with the smallest package for bouquets and ordered an extra bouquet for the 5 bridesmaids. There were plenty of flowers extra to make the boutonnières with. I am so glad I had 7 people to help make the bouquets/boutonnieres, especially my best friend's mom who enjoys crafting/designing. We honestly couldn't have done it without her, so I highly recommend you have a person who knows how to work with flowers/has vision (because I certainly did not :)). It was worth doing DIY flowers thanks to the cost. All of the flowers were amazing.Sent on 11/02/2019
We used 3 buckets for the flowers and it took us 3-4 hours to assemble the bouquets and boutonnières. I highly recommend using Kukka!
