Not hiring florist

I’m trying to cut down on cost. I’m not hiring a florist. I plan on making eucalyptus boutineers/ bouquets, and using Italian Rucus as loose greenery for table decor. Anyone’s else not hiring a florist? The pictures are my inspiration

    These are so pretty - I love the simple elegance of greenery! I'm planning on getting fresh flowers through a local grocery store, so not going with a traditional florist. I looked into actual florists and was floored by how expensive they are!

    I love the eucalyptus boutonnières and bouquet! I plan on doing my own flowers, I worked in a flower shop for a little while so I feel pretty confident about it. I think the greenery will look great on your day!

    Those look beautiful. Just remember to get yourself extra supplies to practice and give yourself a buffer if anything gets damaged/is giving you trouble.

    I also DIYed my bouquet and centerpieces:

    Wow they are gorgeous, never thought of doing something like that myself. Might be relaxing doing those in the midst of wedding planning!

    Thank you! I ended up with some extra succulents at the end since some were too small to really work with. However, my centerpieces all went to good homes (including my own), and my bouquet is now in a planter so I have a forever bouquet ^_^

    I don't plan to. I will be doing different trials, but plan to get Kroger roses and doing them myself.
