So, you’re considering arranging your own wedding flowers? There’s a lot of information out there about DIY wedding flowers, and it can be hard to know what’s true and what’s not. I’m here to dispel some of the most common myths about DIY wedding flowers so you can feel empowered to tackle this wedding task!

5 DIY Wedding Flower Myths

We’ve worked with a lot of DIY clients and we’ve heard A LOT of objections, but here are our top 5 DIY Wedding Flower Myths. Number 1 might surprise you! 

DIY Myth Number 5: It’ll be a Disaster! 

Look, stuff happens, and it might. But we give you EVERYTHING you need to prepare and be ready for this whole process. Being prepared really alleviates a lot of stress. I’m channeling my 8th-grade teacher here, but don’t expect to study the night before the test and ace it. If you go through our DIY Guide it has a month-by-month, week-by-week, and especially week-of timeline to help you plan and prepare. Once you take out all of those unknowns and stress points, this process becomes so much more fun. Get excited! And… if something does go wrong, might as well have a professional in your pocket to help you with it!

DIY Myth Number 4: You Have to be Crafty

Some are, some aren’t. You don’t need to be crafty, creative, or even care about flowers to do this. There’s no one type of person that we work with and this approach makes it easy and fun for anyone, craft not required. 

DIY Myth Number 3: Bulk Flowers Save You Money

Many people considering DIY Flowers start on the bulk flower sites which may seem like a good idea because you get like a bajillion flowers for X amount of money… but only ONE type of flower. We’ve compared our prices to those sites and we encourage you to think again. Sure you may get 500 roses but what if you want a little more variety and pay similar prices? We help you figure it all out and know pricing per bunch to help get you AFFORDABLE variety.

DIY MythNumber 2: You’ll Kill Them/They’ll Die

Not sure why but a lot of people we talk to automatically assume they are natural-born flower killers! Spoiler alert, you’re not. With Bloom Culture you are getting THE FRESHEST blooms available. The exact same blooms that professional florists work with. These haven’t been sitting in a cooler for a week and then delivered to you. With the freshest blooms, you get longer-lasting blooms. With our Pro-Tips and comprehensive DIY Guide we’ll help you keep them fresh and perky (no pennies, bleach, sprite, or whatever internet hack you’ve read).

DIY Myth Number 1: It’s too Hard

It’s not hard. You know a lot of things but chances are you don’t know the names of most wholesale flowers, what they cost, or how many stems you need to make the bouquet you want. That’s all totally fine because it’s OUR job to know those things. We’re experienced professional florists and take care of all the unknowns and you get to put it all together. It’s a new and guided approach to DIY. We do the hard part, and guide you through the fun part!
