For some reason, most brides are afraid to make their own flowers. In truth, with proper training and time, you can create amazing arrangements where even the most skilled florist cannot tell they were not professionally designed. An excellent idea is to gather your bridal party about four to six months out from the wedding date and take classes together for making wedding flowers. You can learn how to make beautiful designs from fresh, silk, and dried flowers and then as the wedding date approaches, you can get together again and start making the arrangements. This newly gained skill is something that everyone can carry with them through life and the time spent with friends is a wonderful opportunity to share something special.

When making your own wedding flowers, you can stretch your creativity a little further and save money. In addition to the flowers, you only need a few items such as buckets or glass containers, foam, clippers, and ribbon. Many local colleges or community centers offer classes for beginners and you can find tremendous value in books at your local bookstore or library.

The main criterion for making your wedding flowers is to be prepared. You need to allow yourself ample time to learn and to order the types of flowers you want. Some flowers are imported and take longer to get so make sure you have a schedule that keeps you on track of when to order.

If you will be making the wedding flowers for your ceremony and reception, decide the type of containers. Check with your local hobby or home improvement store where you can gain numerous ideas without paying a fortune. For the reception hall, if you use average size tables, you will need a minimum of two centerpieces per table. For the ceremony, you need at minimum, one large arrangement for the front of the church and then two smaller, coordinating arrangements to place on either side. Other flowers would include the brides bouquet, bridal party flowers, groomsmen flowers, family flowers, and small flowers or arrangements for the individual handling the guest book, vocalist, and musicians.

Order your flowers domestically, and if possible, near or in your specific geographical area. As soon as they arrive, you need to spray all of them carefully with tap water so they stay fresh. The day before the flowers arrive, have all your accessories and tools laid out so you can work with your bridal party in an assembly line type approach. You might have one person do the trimming, one or two people working on setting up the containers, filling the bottom with rocks, marbles, or foam, one or two people doing the actual arrangements, and another person making and attaching the bows. You will be so proud of the beautiful flowers at your wedding, knowing that they were created with people you love, during a special time together.
