Making Bouquets?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone made their own bouquets? The quotes I am getting are crazy expensive - I'm tossing around the idea of getting flowers from a market or Costco when I'm on Mexico and making them. Anyone else?

Hey @@chelseapaige37

I was originally planning on making them. I had flowers bought at Michael's and am now going to return them. I can't seem to find any nice coral flowers because that's one of the colors in my wedding. Anyway I am going to purchase them on Ebay now and not bother with making them. There are some very good sellers on there that can customize them for you. I got one quote yesterday for $199 and that's for my bouquet, 4 bridesmaids, 4 groomsman bouts, grooms bout, and 2 mother corsages.

Have a look do a search for Bridal bouquets and see what you find.

If you are considering using fresh flowers and having someone pick them up at Costco the morning of the wedding, I would be too nervous to do that' seeing that inventory changes daily at Costco there would be no guarantee on Colors or flowers available! I guess if you didn't have a set color scheme and weren't fussy on what types of flowers you used, it could save money- but depending on your resort- Any savings could be lost in taxi fare to/from the flower store!

I was thinking more that I would pre order when I get there since I am going to be there 10 days before the wedding. Then I would pick them up the day before and assemble them the day before.

I wouldn't assemble them the day before if fresh- they will not survive well. From past experience making bouquets for family weddings locally- you really need to assemble them the morning of the wedding for them to be perfect. Especially with the heat of Mexico. even making them in the am, and keeping them cool- we have found bouquets start to open a lot be ceremony time. I wouldn't want the stress on me as the bride. If you have someone you trust and who is experienced with it, maybe assign them to the task- you don't want to be worrying about doing that the morning of your wedding. JMO!

I would be careful if you are buying them outside the resort, make sure you double check that there are no penalties.

I get charged a $300 penalty from my resort if I decide to use an outside flower shop. So I am basically forced to order from their ridiculously expensive flowers.

 

Just something to keep in mind ;)

I considered making my own, I considered them carrying pinwheels, I considered them carrying nothing.... then I thought to myself, all I want my bridesmaids to carry is 3 daisies tied with ribbon so I requested a quote from my WC and they are only $22 each. WOW! I was expecting way more, so I decided to get flowers. Since my bouquet is included, it is actually quote budget friendly.

 

Did you get a quote already from your resort?

 

Just thinking if you wanted something fairly basic for them it may be decently priced.

I know my bouquet is more expensive, because I wanted to be upgraded in size from small to medium (my package includes small) and that was $42!!!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
