Choosing DIY wedding flowers can be a great way to save money on your big day, but let us give one word of caution: this task isn’t for the faint of heart. It takes a lot of work to create all of those centerpieces, bouquets, and boutonnieres that you’ll need for your wedding day, and our guess is that your time is precious. Think you’re up to the task? As anyone will tell you—especially local wedding florists who know the ins and outs of the business—having a solid plan and knowing what you’re getting into are the keys to success. To help you prep, we’ve compiled 10 tips that will come in handy when you’re up to your elbows in flowers. 

But before we jump in, allow us to clear up a common misconception: flowers aren’t cheap. It’s a reality that comes from being beautiful and in high demand (just ask Kylie Jenner). Therefore, DIYing your wedding flowers isn’t cheap either, just cheaper—as long as you don’t make a rookie blunder and destroy your precious blooms. At the end of the day, you may be cutting out the costs of labor, but you’re still paying for the most costly part: the flowers themselves. Every rose has its thorn, right?
