Welcome to my little research project on DIY wedding floral centerpieces and bouquets. I am getting married in May and I was shocked at how expensive flowers were. For a bridal bouquet, 5 bridesmaids bouquets, 13 centerpieces, 9 boutonnieres, and 2 corsages the initial quote was $2200! After discussing with the florist about options to lower the price, it would still cost at least $1400. So, I decided to try to do the centerpieces and bouquets myself! Once a week, until my wedding, I’m going to buy various flowers and arrange them to see what designs I can come up with. Here’s a list of all of my experiments.
- Week One – Orange Alstroemerias and White Spray Roses
- Week Two – Red Carnation and Spray Roses, Chamomile
