A few months ago, I did a DIY Bouquet tutorial for my Arizona brides! While in North Carolina with my newly engaged friend, I tossed together a few pretty sets and created a very simplistic bouquet. I wanted to test out an idea for an elopement bride, or traveling bride, that didn’t have much time to get together with a florist. If flowers aren’t a make-it or break-it deal for you, it isn’t hard to grab some gorgeous flowers and toss them together into your own bouquet. I stopped by a local Kroger owned grocery store and found a 3/$12 deal going on. I tossed together a few different flowers that I felt would accent one another perfectly, and ran to the register! Keep in mind, I already had a ton of burlap at home to use for piecing these together as a bouquet. All that you need for this simple set up are: scissors, masking tape, burlap [or some form of fabric/twine,] and flowers! Yay!! Once you have collected your bouquet’s flowers, just take each individual stem apart and mix them together. It’s super simple.
Again, I would only recommend this for the bride that is having a very simple, or destination wedding, and doesn’t have time to work with a florist. While it may be cheaper, it isn’t the easiest on time! Florist know much more than I do, and can come up with some extravagant designs! I’m hoping to do a session on some of the “keepsake” bouquets in the near future as well! Those are another type of bouquet to seriously consider. <3
