    Hiring a pro. One less thing to worry about leading up to the wedding!

    Pro! I get a 24 rose bouquet with our package so it's a no brainer for us lol. If we were doing it locally I'd probably just go to the grocery store that morning and find a pretty bouquet. I am not a fan of fake flowers.

    Hiring a pro. I don't want the stress of doing my florals before the wedding.

    Pro, we're doing a destination wedding so I don't want to be lugging things around

    Pro all the way. Flowers are an important part of the decor for us. Plus, my cousin is a professional florist and does wonderful work, so it was an easy choice for us.

    I'm going to try to DIY this one. If I don't like it then I'm gong to end up hiring a pro.

    DIY! I made mine out of book pages (I'm a SUPER book lover so it was very "me").

    Hiring a pro, 100%. The florist was willing to work with me on my budget and it's all worked out without me having to take on the stress of doing my own flowers!!

    Doing it myself because I am not using flowers. If I give in and have flowers, it will be because my package at the chapel includes them.

    DIY. One of my best friends volunteered to plan my wedding for me and she's been a planner for several years. She suggested buying the flowers wholesale and doing them ourselves so I'm super psyched!

    In order to cut costs, I'm not even doing a bouquet. Instead, so will be carrying a lit candle as I walk down the aisle. We plan to do a unity candle.

    I’m trying to cut costs, so I’m probably gonna get some fake “real touch” bouquets from Etsy!
