- Searched local markets for fresh flowers the night before wedding. I bought maybe three or four grocery store bouquets. (I didn't have wedding colors or a specific palette. I just wanted a variety of wildflowers in bright, lovely hues.)
- We took the bouquets apart and plucked our favorite stems.
- Then, we arranged the stems and began to shape the bouquet using just our hands and a vase as a guide. We picked a big, spiky purple flower as the focal point then adjusted around that.
With the rest of what wasn't used, we made simple little centerpieces by sticking the stems inside recycled bottles that I dolled up.
All in all, DIY floraling = a success! I highly recommend it. To see more of my wedding photos, check out the other blog. Hop over to this post to see more DIY from our wedding.
