Why Lindsay DIY’ed her Wedding Flowers:

I ended up going the DIY route for a couple of different reasons. First, we knew it was a place we could save on our budget by going DIY. I knew I wanted lots of variety in the floral and lots of greenery to enhance the garden vibe at our venue. Second, I love DIY and the whole process behind creating something. In fact I made and planned all our decor myself, with a little help from family & friends. I loved being able to select all the varieties, colors and quantities of the flowers and greenery myself (I actually had quite the process, that involved a lot of research and a couple different spreadsheets and power points haha) Seeing the whole vision come together once the flowers arrived and we started putting arrangements together was so rewarding. There was nothing more satisfying than walking into the venue and seeing all the hard work pay off.

Lindsays Tips for Other DIY Brides:

Honestly, if you’re thinking about it or have any hesitation just do it. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process of DIY’ing our flowers.

If you aren’t ordering one of the packages, and just ordering bulk flowers like we did, take a few days before you finalize the order. I left our order in the cart for a day or two and I ended up making slight changes a few times before submitting the order.

If you aren’t sure about quantity ask. This is probably what I struggled the most with. I was so worried we wouldn’t have enough to do everything I wanted, but we actually ended up with some extra.

Read the descriptions on the website when looking at specific flowers. I found the flower details and specific flower care so helpful when deciding if the flower was right for our wedding.

I looked at a lot of pictures for inspiration before ordering and would make note of the different flowers, greenery, and styles I was drawn too. This made it easier when it was time to order.
