    That’s so exciting that you’ll get to work with your aunt on your flowers! You know she’ll put in so much more effort and care than a regular florist would!

    What an amazing way to save money! We spent around $1500 on all of our flowers, including centerpieces and what not. Cutting some of that off would have helped tremendously!

    Kind of… I bought all my flowers at Costco super cheap and then my Mother-in-Law did the bouquet and boutineers, she was a florist about 20 years ago and is very talented so we were lucky! We only had bouquets for myself, the bridesmaids, then the boutineers for my husband and the groomsmen to keep it simple.

    It’s so fun that your aunt it really into it! It sounds like you are in good hands! Kelly’s flowers look amazing in the pictures you have posted. In fact, even though I had read that they were DIY, when I was looking at your wedding recaps, I honestly forgot and remember thinking that the flowers were gorgeous!*

    Woah! Those notes are a lot, I had no idea so much went into flowers, no wonder you thought they’d be a bit daunting to DIY! That’s so great she’s helping you out, your sisters flowers are perfectly beautiful.

    It seems like you’re on a roll! Do you think it still would be feasible without your aunt? Centerpieces sound fairly easy but boutonnières and corsages seem a little intimidating…

      I think it could if you have an eye for it. Personally, I’m not sure I would do it without my aunt, but I’m also not very talented when it comes to design.

    I have a friend who has done flowers for a few weddings so I recruited her. It was semi-DIY because I didn’t go through a shop or anything. She ordered the flowers and put together two bouquets (mine and my MOH (no other bridesmaids in my wedding) and 4 boutonnieres (groom, best man, fathers). I didn’t have any other flowers at the ceremony or reception because I had a very simple wedding. The flowers turned out gorgeous though. I loved my bouqeut!

    Do you think your aunt would do a guest post on simple wedding flower DIY? I’m getting married next May and we’re going to try to DIY hydrangea bouquets, but I don’t have a clue what I’m doing!

    My friend is getting married in Orlando and we have no idea where to get started…. Could you share the flower warehouse name with us? Btw my friend runs away from technology, do I email her all your wedding posts and she loves them. Her sister got married in April and she’s getting married in September so she can relate with a lot of what you’ve been going through. Thanks 🙂

    Wow, you all did an amazing job! Your aunt is very talented! It’s great that she can guide you on the prices of each flower.

    I helped my sister with DIY flowers for her wedding and they turned out gorgeous! She also got most of her flowers at a warehouse (I think she spent less than $200). We also found some amazing flowers at Whole Foods that were fairly inexpensive. We made the bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, and arrangements for her outdoor ceremony. All of the guests commented on how beautiful they were and couldn’t believe that we made them ourselves. So worth it!

    I love your sister’s flower arrangements. They remind me of the ones we had at our wedding and they were professionally done. 🙂

    My best friend pretty much took care of her own wedding flowers, too—and they came out wonderful!

    Wow, you’re so lucky to have an aunt who knows so much about flowers! She’ll be a huge help I’m sure. I love your sister’s wedding dress, so pretty!

    Lucky you to have your aunt to help you! It kills me how expensive flowers can get! I am hoping to avoid having them altogether…winter wedding and all, so I’m hoping to do something pretty with branches/pinecones/etc.

    I didn’t diy my flowers but I didn’t have any bridesmaids so they were fairly inexpensive. My little brother was my man of honour 🙂

    My whole wedding was DIY so the flowers were too. My sister knew how to make everything so once she said she would help I was on board. We ordered lillies and roses from Costco and couldn’t have been happier. HUGE gorgeous blooms and rock bottom prices. If you have a membership to Costco, I would highly recommend looking into them and comparing prices with the warehouse in Orlando. We bought babies breath and other green filler from the grocery store the day before the wedding.

    We had a really small wedding (no attendants and small reception) so it was pretty easy for us to tackle. My sister did the bouts, corsages, and bouquet and my family helped make the centerpieces, all during the rehearsal dinner! Really it was fun, and not stressful in the least!

    OMG I love love love this! I did my wedding flowers too! I didnt have a great resource around me to get flowers so I bought them from Bloomsbythebox.com and I was so happy with the flowers and the money I saved. I agree it really is not that hard and they really did look beautiful!
