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! 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 appropriate buckets and cool storage space to keep the flowers fresh, and that you have all the materials and tools you'll need to complete your arrangements.

We've featured a bunch of DIY wedding flower tutorials in the past — so be sure to check them out to get ideas and how-to's! Below are links to a few of our favorites.
