So proud of my diy Florals and Decorations!

My wedding photos just came in and I am in AWE of how everything turned out! I'm a proud DIY Bride, planning the entire wedding and creating the decor (live florals and other items such as invitations, signage, etc.) by hand. I had a lot of help from my bridesmaids, family, and now husband, and if I could do it all over again I would! Any other passionate DIYers out there?

This definitely could not have been done without the setup completed by my amazing day-of coordinator, hostesses, and ushers.

    Those are stunning! Did you order them online from a wholesaler or go through a grocery store?

    Thank you!! I ordered most of the flowers through Sam's Club, and used Fiftyflowers for the greenery/filler flowers and some spray roses. We made a last-minute run to Trader Joe's for additional greenery so would recommend them as well!

    You did such a great job! When I first started planning, I was convinced I would be able to do my own floral arrangements. It took exactly one trip where I tried to mock up bouquets and centerpieces to make it very clear it鈥檚 not as easy as it looks (and I don鈥檛 possess that talent LOL)!

    Lol!! Yes this took lots of practice - I purchased a "test run" of flowers for my engagement party in Sept 2020 and tweaked my vision based on that. I'd originally pictured those massive centerpieces, but my mom said she could only think about someone bumping the table and knocking them all down. Not to mention the logistics of transporting everything! I also took a flower arranging class, and had additional practice with my brother's wedding and my bridal shower!

    Thanks so much!

    Some of the quotes I got from florists were $5k+ (average around $7k). My budget was around $2K-$3K for all decor, and the vast majority was spent on the flowers.
