A popular choice is to do it yourself. The experts at Floral Design Institute offer some essential advice to ensure that your DIY wedding flowers create the wedding of your dreams.

Test the Floral Source.

The first and most important detail is to locate a quality vendor that will allow you to order flowers. There are many growers, wholesalers, and even floral shops that offer bulk ordering options for DIY brides. Once you have chosen a vendor see if it is possible to place a small test order. This will allow you to see the quality of product as well as how it will be arriving. From here you will want to work with the professionals to create the order. They will be able to tell you exactly what flowers, foliage, and colors are available during the time frame of your wedding. Ordering flowers that are in season is a cost effective way to achieve beauty on your special day.

Flexible Flower Choices

When ordering your blooms you want to have a clear idea of what you want, but also be ready to be flexible. Rather than specifying an exact color, like coral; be more general. For example: a lovely mixture of pastel pinks. This will allow the beauty of Mother Nature to shine though a blend of colors that will beautifully enhance the color palette of your wedding. If you must have specific colors see if a sample bunch can be ordered to ensure it matches the desired color.

Learn from Floral Professionals

Before your event, consider taking a floral design class. Doing this could offer valuable information on how to arrange the flowers, products needed to keep them stay fresh and happy, supplies that could be helpful during the design process, and of course professional tips that will aid in the success of your wedding flowers. This is an easy way to learn the basics of floral design, form a plan, and of course have fun!

Last Minute Floral Design Tips

Once the big day arrives there are a few things that you can do to ensure the day moves along smoothly and your floral arrangements are stunning. First be sure the flowers are stored in a cool area with no direct sunlight hitting the blooms. This can damage them and cause them to wilt. Also make sure the flower stems are all the way in water, and that the water has a floral preservative in it, this will ensure the flowers last throughout the event. Next, bring in lots of helpers and create and assembly line. This will help to alleviate stress making the process fun. Schedule ample time to create the floral arrangements; do not underestimate the amount of time and people it will take to create the wedding flowers.
