Wedding Budget Tip #39:
DIY Your Wedding Flowers.
If you've got your heart set on fresh flowers for your big day, you can easily do them yourself with a little pre-planning. There are tons of great resources out there for wholesale flowers like our friends at Blooms By The Box and FiftyFlowers. You could also consider shopping at your local farmer's market for inexpensive blooms to arrange yourself if hiring a professional florist is out of your budget.
If you've got the gumption and crafty skills to attempt to DIY your wedding flowers, just be sure to be organized about it. Make sure you have all the tools and supplies you'll need to get the job done. Don't forget to have large buckets and cool storage space to keep the flowers fresh while you prep!
