Top DIY wedding flower tips

We are now in the spring wedding season and wanted to share some tried-and-true tips for wedding flowers that will be helpful as you make your own.

Stay Organized

We recommend that you collect all the inspiration you find for DIY wedding flowers in one place when you start looking. You have two options: Pinterest and Instagram’s bookmark link. However, we recommend that you stick with one. It can be overwhelming to have everything. After you have selected a few photos, it is a good idea to go through them and find a commonality. Are the colors similar? Are the arrangements organic-looking? You can then choose flowers and your color palette once you have identified the similarities.

Selecting Flowers

It is important to choose only a few flowers when choosing your flowers. The flowers will naturally flow together for a cohesive look if you use a limited color palette. We have a great tool to help you search for flowers in the colors you desire.

It is important to check the availability of a specific type of flower before you purchase it. Although some flowers can be purchased at any time, prices will fluctuate if they’re not in peak season. Peonies, for example, are always a favorite, but they are only available in limited quantities and can only be purchased between May and June. You won’t want to include them in your summer wedding.

The best flowers can be affected by the venue. If you have an outdoor ceremony or reception, some flowers will wilt more quickly in the heat than others. It is better to use hearty blooms such as chrysanthemums and carnations. However, you can be a little less picky when inside since it will be temperature-controlled.

Plant for Care

It is important to be aware that flowers purchased from wholesalers may still have leaves, thorns, or guard petals. These will need to be removed before you can arrange the flowers. To ensure that the flowers receive the right amount of water, it is important to trim 1-2 inches from each stem at a 45-degree angle. After all the prep work is completed, make sure you have plenty of fresh, clean water available for your flowers. Keep them in a cool area away from direct sunlight to prevent wilting.

Practice is the Best

It is good to buy a few extra flowers to create a practice arrangement. This will help you get the hang of things before the big day. This is a great way for your friends to see the result you are aiming for.

Form a Team

This is a big job that you should not do alone. Gather your family and friends to assist you in the arrangement process. You can make this a fun activity by providing snacks, drinks, or even music. It can also be used as a bonding activity.


You don’t have to do it all yourself if you are overwhelmed by the cost of flowers or if you are afraid about doing it yourself. Your planner can help you move the ceremony flowers to your reception. Aisle flowers in planters can be used to flank sweetheart tables or the entrance to the reception. Bouquets work well for the cake table and even the reception table. A beautiful arbor or arch can be placed behind the cake table and make for great photos.
