You still can have your special day really special with flowers, without having to stretching your budget. You will just need to work a bit harder, trigger your creativity, and collect some buckets and clippers. Yes, we are speaking about DIY wedding flowers. Let’s discuss further.
The idea of being surrounded by flowers is quite dreamy. But remember that the flowers should not wilt early to offer you the same feeling throughout your day. So, you have to ensure that you have a cool place to preserve the flowers. Next, you will need lots of buckets having cool water in them. Inquire with the florist about how many buckets will be required. Usually a bucket can accommodate two centerpieces. Prefer to order home-grown flowers so that they will be the freshest when delivered. After they arrive, keep them in buckets and keep on spraying them often so as to keep them fresh till your event.
Keep sufficient time reserved for yourself to make bouquets and other flower arrangements. Ideally you should handle the flowers yourself, unless you can get a qualified and talented friend to handle them. Ensure that all the arrangements can be ready the day before wedding, which will eliminate the possibility of the eleventh-hour stress.

The 1920s’ favorite style of presentation bouquets is once again making its arrival. If you want to create a presentation bouquet, pick long flowers, like the beautiful French tulips, calla lilies, orchids, Asiatic lilies or delphinium. Start with the longest flower laying it on your work table and arrange other flowers in a descending order of their height beside the longest stem, so that it will create a shape of an arrow. Now, gather the flowers gently in hand and tie them with a beautiful bow a few inches below their heads. Isn’t it incredibly simple? And you have a gorgeous bouquet ready!
How about wearing your bouquet rather than carrying it? Flowers can take the form of stunning jewelry like necklaces, earrings, rings and more. Make flower strings and wear them in neck, arms, waist and even hair.
