Jessica and Thomas were married this past fall in a beautiful Saskatchewan wedding, we touched base with Jessica to learn more about her special day and she so kindly shared beautiful photos from her wedding. Thanks so much Jessica and Thomas for entrusting You Floral with your special day!

Venue: Brick & Loft Event Co

Reception: Forestry Farm Saskatoon

Why DIY: Florals have always held a special place in my heart & I wanted them to be a significant part of my wedding day. From the ceremony to reception, every choice was made with the overall design and aesthetic in mind, aiming to accentuate the florals incorporated throughout. I always knew I had a passion for both growing my own florals and the dream of owning a floral shop. Seizing the opportunity, I decided to dive into the floral world. You Floral played a crucial role in assisting me with the offer, helping determine quantities, and overall support made the process not only easy but incredibly fun.


  1. Do your research! Take time to throughly learning about the floral process & preparation. Understanding the amount of work involved, especially the week of. While the thought of the work was exciting for me, it might not be for others.
  2. Prep ahead: I spent months watch tutorials on floral design & preparation. Being well pearled will help you feel more confident and less overwhelmed the week of.
  3. Get help: enlist friends & family for assistance, especially with prep work. I had a group of girlfriends assist with the initial preparation like trimming, stripping leaves, wiring and removing guard petals. Not only did this save me HOURS of work, it was such a fun evening.
  4. Enjoy the process: despite the hard work involved, remember to enjoy it! Creating your own florals can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience, and seeing your vision coke to life will make it all worth it!

Their Review: Hi! I just wanted to reach out and say a big thank you! I went through You Floral for my wedding last fall, and I was so in love with the process I’ve started my own floral business doing full weddings & events. Without your company I wouldn’t have had the confidence to do my own florals to begin with!! The experience was great from initial consult, to trouble shooting the week of. I’m ever so grateful and will definitely be sending brides your way if they wish to do DIY!
