diy Ceremony Flowers

Can anyone tell me about their experience with purchasing and DIY-ing their own ceremony flowers from a website such as FlowerMoxie or Fifty Flowers? I had to postpone my March wedding due to obvious circumstances, and now I will be doing a smaller back yard ceremony in August. In an effort to save some money (and since I cancelled my original florist), I am now thinking I can just do the flowers on my own. I want to order some type of kit that comes with instructions, and both of the previously mentioned sites are within my budget. Just want to make sure it is worth it, so any info would be helpful!

    Hi! Go to bouquetsbynicole.com
    She has a diy kit, and can customize your wedding colors, etc. I'm using her as my florist, they are satin Rose's, or real touch whichever you prefer. Better to diy it!!!

    These are my ceremony flowers I just did last night on my own. I used Lings Moment flowers, and added hydrangeas.

    Not sure if it's your style, but check out: https://solawoodflowers.com/.

    They sell kits to make DIY wood floral arrangements. Sounds crazy, but they are cute! Can also be used for household decor later on too. Or to send home with bridesmaids/family as a gift since they last forever!

    We haven't done our flowers yet since our wedding is in September, but we are using Kukka Flowers (https://www.kukkaflowers.com/). We picked the Crazy In Love collection, and you can customize any of the existing collections or build a completely custom collection. I like that you can customize the size you need too based on how many bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces (if any) and they will send the right number of each stem along with directions to arrange.

    There are definitely advantages to fake flowers: keeping them forever, arranging anytime and not having to do it the day before the ceremony, but I worked in a flower shop for a couple of years and I couldn't imagine not having real flowers.

    If you don't have experience arranging flowers and are worried about it, my advice would be to grab some grocery store flowers to play around with and make yourself a cute bouquet to brighten up your home.

    When I decided to DIY the floral I did some research on the flowers I wanted (hydrangeas and roses) and watched lots of videos on YouTube. Some of them are good some of them are bad but you can still learn from the bad ones.


    I do suggest practicing so you know what works and doesn鈥檛. I ordered Roses from Global Rose and got fake Hydrangeas from efavormart/tablecloth factory. I鈥檓 using fake hydrangeas because they don鈥檛 last long in floral foam and I do not want to be making centerpieces on the morning of my wedding. diy Ceremony Flowers 9
