The romantic, classic garden wedding trend projected to be most popular this year will be filled with large fluffy textures, antique colored greens, and whimsical pale and bright tones. This tutorial is meant to help brides get the trendy looks they love, but on budget.
The keys to the classical garden look are the vase, greens, colors, and textures. The vases should be a vintage or milk glass textured vase, all shapes and sizes will work. The greens look like they have come straight out of your garden and are lush and frame all the floral work. The flower colors should be antiques and pale colors mixed with bright pops of whimsical colors. The textures of greenery should be weedy and garden like while the flowers should be fluffy with fillers that add the harder textures. These floral designs can be expensive when a florist is hired but can be rather affordable when you create these floral designs on your own.
There are no peonies in this centerpiece! Isn’t that shocking!?! That peony looking flower in this arrangement is a garden rose! It is called romantic antique and have a similar bulbous rounded shape and fluffy petals. Ladies, if your wedding is at a time when peonies are not available you can go with Romantic Antique Garden Roses!
What you need:
1. Vases: We purchased this milk vase from Etsy.com. Etsy is a great resource for budget brides looking for accessories, decor, or vases.
2. Wholesale Flowers: Order flowers online from www.BloomsByTheBox.com. Get garden roses, pink and white ranunculus, peach versilla roses, peach and green hypericum, seeded eucalyptus, and italian ruscus.
3. Floral Foam: Oasis floral foam blocks will keep the arrangement together, help you make a consistent shape, and hydrate the flowers in the arrangement.
4. Floral Sheers: purchase special scissor only for flowers, the sharp ridges will ensure that the stems are not crushed. When using everyday, kitchen scissors you will damage the stems.

Brides, even if you are not on a tight budget you may want to spend your money on additional guests or a honeymoon rather than wedding shower flowers. If that is the case, this is the perfect project for your wedding shower! Learn how to use bright colors, textures, dollar store vases, and flowers to make fun, simple, inexpensive DIY arrangements, perfect for any wedding or wedding shower. This is a versatile look that can be changed to match any color scheme or flower choice! In this post we used bright pink peonies, light pink stock, and purple larkspur.
Your wedding shower is a great time to use bright girly colors that your hubby to be may not be on board with for the wedding. It’s also the perfect wedding event to use wholesale flowers to cut costs. You may not need to cut costs on your wedding flowers, but could bear to DIY your wedding shower flowers (it’s even a great project for bridesmaids). Doing your own wedding shower centerpieces is very simple and not very time consuming. To make things even more simple, only use one type of flower per vase. Remember – simple designs are the best way to pull off professional looking DIY arrangements! Check out this DIY Flower inspiration for a fun bridal shower look.
Color and Arrangement:
The great part of using one type of flower in each vase is that you can place them in many sundry clusters that will contribute to the texture of your tablescape. These photos exhibit a couple different approaches to situating the arrangements together to make different color clusters and shapes along the center of the table. Don’t over rely on symmetry, that’s when DIY becomes too uniform and overworked. Making random shapes and filling the room with color should be the main priority.
Details that add to the color palette:
Concentration to small details can really make your DIY centerpieces stand out. The green ribbon compliments the natural colors in the stems while adding some extra spunk to each vase. The purple ribbon is an effort to accentuate the larkspur; since the pink plates draw attention to the peonies, the ribbon brings attention to the purple in the larkspur. The pale pink double stock acts as a secondary color that brings interest to the bright pink peony. These bright and girly colors are the perfect wedding shower flowers!
Inexpensive Vases: All of the vases in this post were purchased at a dollar store! This makes your DIY Wedding Shower centerpieces even more economic! In addition, using an array of different size and shape vases is a great way to create texture and interest. It allows you to spread color and texture across an entire table. Flowers add so much dimension to a room so try to spread things out to make a high impact with less budget.
DIY wedding flowers can be a way to cut the costs, be creative, and gain bragging rights at your wedding shower. Many people are intimidated by DIY but the truth is bulk flowers are the best way to save and get the look you want at your wedding or wedding events. Not every bride has a $40,000 budget, in fact, most brides don’t. Once you try putting together your own shower flowers you are going to want to make your wedding ceremony flowers too. Bouquets are fun and easy to make! There is plenty advice and DIY flower help out there to get you making your own arrangements!

One of the most popular current bridal trends is the elegant, yet down-to-earth “rustic” themed wedding. The desired fresh vintage feel was recently embodied in this Vermont Barn wedding, photographed by Stylish & Hip Wedding Photography.
The two brides chose the Webster Barn in Morrisville, Vermont as their venue which provided plenty of room for guests, fresh air, and gorgeous scenery. A Wildflower Pack from BloomsByTheBox.com gave our girls the perfect inspiration to complete their vision. To complete the package, they chose to add billy balls, blue cornflower, green spider mums and pompon buttons. The bridal bouquets were made with the same types of flowers, but each was unique. As a LGBT friendly vendor (a same sex right advocate!), BloomByTheBox.com provides excellent service to all of its customers to aid in flower selection, flower care and DIY arrangements.
These Do-It Yourself arrangements, bouquets, and boutonnieres added a very personal touch to a lovely wedding. With no buyer restrictions, you can buy wholesale flowers in bulk online at BloomsByTheBox.com and save money! Looking for more wedding inspiration? Visit BloomsByTheBox.com today!
