Incorporating floral accents like wedding flower hair designs into your budget wedding decor can be a breeze. Placing flowers in your hair can be just as easy, affordable, and quick as it sounds. Here are some tips for flower hair designs for your wedding.

Wedding Flower Hair DesignsFlowers in Picture: Hydrangea florets, Baby’s breath!

1. Select light flower. Large and heavy flowers like lilies, roses, peonies, garden roses, and succulents are going to be hard to work into hair. They are too heavy and bulk for a simple DIY and the last think you need on your wedding day is frustration with your hair. The best flowers for the job are: Fillers (baby’s breath, waxflower, solidago etc.), freesia, ranunculus, florets from hydrangeas, spray mums, spray roses, sweetheart roses, anemones, lisianthus and dendrobium orchids.

 Flower Hair Pin

Make this design by using floral adhesive to attach and position white larkspur florets, pieces of cream astilbe, greens,and scabiosa to a plastic hair comb. Its very simple!

2. Don’t try to make a complicated design. Place simple clusters of flowers in your hair. If you plan on making a head band or halo make sure you have practiced in advance. Those designs can be a little more complex but easy to learn if done a few times. Check out with DIY floral head band tutorial if you want to learn how to make a floral head band.

3. Don’t over order. Less is more in this circumstance. You will not need to order extra flowers for this simple addition to your DIY. Just use a few blooms (remove them from their stems) and tastefully decorate.

This week, Katie Couric‘s “Wednesday Weddings” featured Darcy Miller, the Editorial Director of Martha Stewart Weddings, giving advice on budget DIY wedding centerpieces! Darcy Miller walked through a beautiful display of DIY tables capes that are budget friendly, easy to create, and fashionable. Watch the full video and read below to download the corresponding resources.

1. Baby’s Breath & Printed Vellum Lace Vases – See how cylinder vases paired with baby’s breath can be jazzed up with Vellum paper! Simply print the lace design on vellum paper, you can download the pattern at Martha Stewart Weddings. To replicate the idea in the video, wrap the vellum paper around cylinders, napkin rings, and decorate votives. We particularly like this project because it is very low stress, low cost, simple, yet beautiful. It gives you the best of both worlds, aesthetic and budget friendly!

2. Fruit Centerpieces -  The trendy fruit centerpieces are super simple to put together. Get a bowl-like shaped vase, add lemons with greenery to achieve the look in the video. Darcy Miller added special candy decor that is very simple to DIY. Martha Stewart provides the candy labels for your wedding, just print the PDF, cut out each label, and glue them to tins!  And if you really want to venture out, alternate between fruit and flowers on your ceremony tables to introduce multiple textures to the atmosphere.

3. DIY Carnation Ombre Centerpieces – Ombre is trend that seems a more difficult to pull off than you think. Just grab flowers in multiple shades of the same color and them place them together from lightest to darkest! If you can’t find a specific flower in every shade you want, don’t rule out the option for floral spray (very authentic looking on flowers!). In the video, Darcy Miller and Katie Couric agree that using carnations in this way makes them look sleek and fashion forward. They are very affordable and can jazz up a wedding when used correctly.

Budget DIY wedding centerpieces are not as hard to put together as you may think! So many brides get in touch with us after creating DIY arrangements and tell us how much fun they had being creative. They had fun arranging and making the flowers so personal for their big day. So what do you think? You think you will make your DIY centerpieces?

We are always excited when one of our DIY’ers shares their DIY wedding flowers with us. Especially with such a tough wedding color, blue! This beautiful DIY wedding was on a winter day in Wallington New Jersey. Anya Foto Photography captured the classy blue and white wedding. Go visit Anya Foto Photography to see the full wedding, the blue bridesmaids dresses are a particular favorite!

It can prove  difficult to incorporate blue flowers in a design. In fact, there are only a few blue flowers that occur in nature. This blushing bride went with blue delphinium. Other options include blue iris, blue hydrangea, and spray tinted flowers. In 2014 navy blue is going to be a popular wedding flower color. Pantone color reports and blogs are excited to publish blue and nautical themed weddings! So keep an eye out for these designs and maybe used this as inspiration!

We love hearing all the positive feedback. We get constant motivation to continue to provide the freshest quality flowers and premier customer service. This specific couple sent us photos and thanks.

They said, “We thought this would be a great opportunity to reach out to those who enriched our wedding day. Thank you very much again for your professionalism and responsiveness as we made our flower selections. We were very pleased with the final products and thought it would be nice to share a few photographs of them (taken by our photographer, AnyaFoto). Thank you again, and we’ll be sure to suggest Blooms By The Box to our friends and family.”

Thank you so much Carolyn and Stan!

Looking to maximize your Valentines Day Fundraising? Blooms By The Box has you covered. With a huge selection of flowers at low wholesale prices, we also have the resources to help make your venture a success. Let’s talk about options.

Freedom Rose 3 Stems

Roses vs. Carnations

Demand: Roses are consistently the most in-demand flower for Valentines Day Fundraising, with red roses topping the charts. With this being said, they can get expensive. If you are targeting higher-income customers, then roses are the way to go. However, if you’re fundraising in a school, then carnations are a cheaper alternative that students will be able to afford.

Tip: Roses are priced by the length of their stems – the longer the stem, the higher the price. If you’re looking to increase profit margins, go for shorter stems, such as 40 cm.

Rose Polar Star 25 stems

Care: Buying wholesale will save you money, but you will be getting your flowers in the condition a florist would. Roses have thorns to strip and leaves that need to be trimmed. For those who don’t have the time and man power to do this, carnations may be a better option. With easily removable leaves and hardy stems and flowers, there is a lot less prep work. As long as they are properly hydrated and kept cool, both flowers will stay fresh for a long time.

Tip: If you need to receive your flowers more than three days in advance or sell them for multiple days, flower food is a must.

Colors: Both roses and carnations come in a wide variety of colors, with red, pink and white being the most popular for Valentines Day Fundraising. If you’re looking for a large variety of colors, you might want to consider our boxes of assorted color roses (no red roses will be included) and assorted color carnations.

V-Day CarnationsStem vs. Bouquet

Prep Work: A single stem will be easier to sell, but a larger bouquet will sell for more money. It’s important to accurately gauge how much work your organization will be able to handle. If you can have a fun, stress-free day of flower arranging with plenty of help, then bouquets may be the way to go.  Otherwise, single stem roses or carnations are still a great option for Valentines Day Fundraising.

Rose Sweet UniqueDemand: It’s important to know your customer base. Will your customers be more interested in purchasing a large, possibly expensive bouquet, or would they be more likely to buy a single stem for less money? Maximizing sales will allow you to maximize profit.
