When you begin to research wedding flower options, you probably spend a lot of time on Pinterest, looking for DIY flower tutorials.

Favorite Centerpiece Tutorial
This flower tutorial is especially helpful because it shows an affordable DIY arrangement. Using spray roses, greenery, and fillers with small plastic vases and miscellaneous small glassware is budget friendly. Small glass vases like above can be found at your local dollar store! Using a tape grid, like in this post is also a great skill to learn!
Favorite Bouquet Tutorial
Peony and dusty miller bouquets are very common among modern brides. We created our very own Do-It-Yourself flower tutorial to provide an example for a budget peony bouquet. The secret is to use dusty miller and one bunch of peonies for the bridal bouquet. Then, use 5 stems and dusty miller for your bridesmaids bouquets. This is a great alternative if you really love peonies but need to stay in budget.
Favorite Garland Tutorial
Floral garland can be pretty tricky to make if you have never had any experience with it before. You may need to practice before diving in head first. In order to start, get some greenery and wire it together to make the base of the garland. Add the flowers after! Click on the photo above to see the full tutorial.
Favorite Boutonniere Tutorial
This is living proof that DIY can be SUPER simple. This is perfect for a couple who needs to make 10-15 boutonniere because it is affordable, easy, and quick to put together. Each boutonniere would take about 2 minute to make! Just grab some nautical ribbon (or something that matches your theme) some rope (or string) and baby’s breath and you are ready to rock n’ roll.
Favorite Floral Accent Tutorial
Floral accents usually take a back seat with wedding DIY. However, there a lot of ways to use these adorable napkin rings. If you have 100 guests and don’t have time to make 100, then you can use them parents of the bride and groom, the wedding party, and the bride and groom. OR use this very simple idea to make small accents for the ceremony by placing them along the aisle on chairs or pews!

One of our amazing customers shared her personal Do-It-Yourself Event Flowers with us. Kate’s event was rather unique, she had a rock ‘n’ roll themed Judicial Reception for the Association of Women Attorneys!
Kate ordered a mixed box of wholesale dahlias and carnations to be delivered to Houston, Texas. She found inspiration on APracticalWedding.com for making a DIY carnation backdrop! This simple project made a large statement at Kate’s event. Take a look!
The carnation backdrop and the dahlia centerpieces create beautiful event decor for a very special event. The edgy rock ‘n’ roll theme was completed with glitter in the posh looking venue, Sam Houston Hotel.
Keeping it simple by arranging one flower type in a vase is a smart move. Dahlias are the perfect flowers for single flower variety arrangements. Their regal colors and shapes are sophisticated all on their own. Also, the simple carnation back drop was a perfect accent. Carnations are very hard, long lasting, and easy to work with. The sophistication and impact was made through her color palette and design choices. Bravo Kate!
