DIY Flowers Update

So I've gotten a lot of great feedback with my trial and will definitely be taking every one's suggestions into consideration. I just wanted to clarify a couple of things that I may have not been clear on.

1. I decided to do DIY flowers to cut down on costs and really personalize my wedding.
2. Obviously I'm not having a Platinum Wedding therefore I'm not trying to go for Platinum Flowers.

3. I've gone into this project realizing that the best way to achieve great DIY Flowers is to KEEP IT SIMPLE (yeah I'm a little boring). Therefore I decided not to add any fillers, greenery etc..otherwise I may as well fork over the extra cash to have a pro do them.

4. I love roses, especially when they are fully blown, I love centerpieces of just roses because it's soo simple, chic and timeless. I didn't want to go with centerpieces that when you look back at pictures would look out of date.

5. I will be adding more flowers to the trial, to get the affect I'm trying to achieve, yet there will not be tons of roses in each other either... DIY=KEEPING COSTS DOWN

6. I did not want to use fake flowers, I don't like the look of them, but to each it's own. I want my guests to be able to take home the roses after the reception if they would like so.

Here are a few pictures that I used as inspiration when I did my trial so you can get a better understanding of the looking I'm aiming for...SIMPLICITY



Yes my flowers aren't over the top like you may see on many wedding blogs, but obviously I'm my own bride, with my own taste and envision for my wedding and that's is what will make my wedding FABULOUS!!!!


  1. I just want to say that, personally, I love what you did for your bouquets and cps. I'm with you - they're classic and timeless and you just can't get any better than that! Kudos to you!

  2. Thank you for your kind words :)
