I had an interesting experience picking my own flowers... I will say, if you DO NOT have a plan- or time to make the plan, I wouldn't recommend becoming a florist 2 days before your wedding... BUT, if you do have the time- this can be the most rewarding experience ! I fell in love with Protea, and Anemones - on a whole new level. Our wedding guests still are talking about our flowers, it was so much fun to create your own unique look. We are so inspired by this site!
