When planning my wedding and pricing everything out, I knew that I was going to DIY my own flowers. Not only do I love being creative, but I also love saving thousands of dollars. Seriously, not hiring a florist is going to save us thousands!
I felt confident about making the centerpieces and other decorations, but I was a little nervous on how creating my own bouquet would work out.
