DIY Wedding Flowers/Florist Help

Due to the overwhelming cost of weddings, many brides are opting
for the Do-It-Yourself option.

As with everything, there are pro's and con's do doing your own wedding flowers and decor.

Obviously, the biggest pro is that you can save a lot of money by doing your own flowers.
If you, or a person close to you, has a floral background, is comfortable working floral materials, understands the use of hydrating and treating fresh flowers, knows some of the technical aspects of color, line, dimension, layers, and texture
then this option might be good for you.

If you choose to do your own arrangements, don't forget to ALWAYS do a practice run.
Sample arrangements give you time to perfect your technique and fix any problems you may run into. It also gives you a chance to make sure you have all the tools, supplies, and miscellaneous supplies you need to complete your wedding flower arrangements.

One of the biggest challenges, a con, to doing your own flowers is that you get into the project and realize it is more than you can do. Often brides are already frazzled and stressed with the many details of planning and coordinating a wedding leaving their creative juices drained.
Simple things that should be easy, become hard.

On occasion, flowers being shipped in do not always arrive as planned. Color and size of flowers are hard to control and last minute arrangement plans may have to be altered. If you are a diy bride and struggle with making last minute changes, this option may not be good for you.

Experienced florists are used to working under these conditions and with these challenges.
They have tools, supplies, and resources to help them when problems arise.
Florists are also not emotionally connected to the wedding so they only have the flowers to deal with....not the dress, the make-up, the photographer who showed up late, or the mother who is trying to take over the day!
