I’m planning on creating my own flower arrangements for my wedding but I’m running into issues when I try to calculate costs. I have no idea how many flowers I need for the arrangements. Does anyone have any suggestions for ways I can calculate this ahead of time? Or know of a book or website that will give me some instructions? Thanks!
I’m also doing DIY flowers. I’ve already done up a sample centerpiece. You need to keep in mind the vase you plan on using, the type of flowers you’re using, and how many bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, centerpieces you plan on doing. I would go to Fifty-Flowers (online) and speak with a live representative. I’m using carnations and roses in my centerpieces with 15 roses and 15 carnations in each one. I’ll also add in some baby’s breath to each. I have 16 tables, but if you use Fifty-Flowers, they have very good prices and the flowers come to you fresher than if you got them from a florist.
