Reason For DIY’ing:

I love to create, even if I don’t know what I’m doing. For me, it was very special to get to choose the flowers and greenery, assemble, and carry them with me throughout the day. (And I was able to make a bouquet 3x the size compared to paying a professional). DIYing the flowers were a major highlight from the wedding planning experience.

My one regret:

Failing to ask for an estimate of quantity needed. I ended up with quite a few extra flowers, and could’ve saved a bit on that. We ended up making boutonnières with leftovers, but still had more.

Theme:

Simply green – natural metals (brass and gold) and a lot of earth tones with greenery.
