  • Think of a concept

Having a concept is very important because you need to know what kind of style are you going to opt for in order to bring out the best in your DIY wedding flower arrangement. Ask yourself: do you want a traditional type of flower arrangement, wherein white flowers are the ones dominating the wedding or are you going to break the stereotype and push forward to a more colorful and eye-catching wedding flower arrangement that is not so usual, yet striking? The decision lies in your hands.

  • Consider the color combination

Color combinations are a way to either make or break your flower arrangement. You could choose between a white or colorful wedding flower arrangement or consider using this commonly used guide for color combination:

  • Secondary Colors – this includes the colors Purple, Green and Orange. With these, you can try mixing a Lavender with green leaves. You may also opt for Orange Sunflowers and mix it with Purple Flowers.
  • Tertiary Colors – this is where primary and secondary colors are combined. You can follow this by combining Red Roses and Yellow Tulips. You can also mix Calla Lilies with Bellflowers.
  • Monochromatic – this is where you can use a single color with different tones and shades. All you have to do is choose a specific color and hoard all of its flower types. If you choose red, you can mix Roses, Gerbera Daisy, Dianthus, Dahlia, and many more. The same goes for other color types.
  • Blend in with the theme of the wedding

Although it is not a requirement to blend with the theme of the wedding, it is still best to do it. Sometimes, creating flower arrangements that are far from the look of a certain event makes your design look out of place and cluttered. Be cautious with your choices and make sure that your DIY wedding flower arrangement still looks good.

  • Choose your vases wisely

There are vases that are made of glass and plastic. It is more practical to choose plastic as it doesn’t break into pieces easily, unlike glass vases. Also, it is more ideal to use a plastic one in a sensitive event like a wedding. If you plan on using such vases, make sure that your flower arrangements are beautiful and sophisticated. If you have a budget, then you may opt for glass vases as they look more elegant and durable.

  • Pick flowers that don’t die easily

This is the crucial part. You do not want your flowers to rot even before the event has started. There are a huge variety of flowers that don’t decay and decompose over time. If you are worried about this aspect, then you may consider mixing real and fake flowers to balance your wedding flower arrangement.

  • Prepare a budget

As a consumer, you need to create a list of the things that you are going to buy. Hence, it’s necessary to prepare a budget, especially for an event like a wedding.

One does not have to go over the top in order to create a beautiful wedding flower arrangement. You just have to be wise with your choices. Of course, you need to be practical, but you shouldn’t ignore the idea of choosing quality over anything else either. Decorating for a wedding can be tiresome and stressful, but it’ll be worth it in the end if you give your best.
