I convinced my fiance to buy bulk flowers and let me arrange them to cut down on costs. I am so glad I did! We were able to decorate exactly how we wanted and the flowers were so pretty and perfect for our wedding! They were limp when we got them but after about half a day in water they perked right up. We were able to use them for our cake and the arch we were married under as well. We had a lot of fun (and stress ;P) arranging the flowers ourselves and decorating the church. It was definitely cheaper than going to a florist for all the flowers we received. We spent about $780 on flowers and if we had gone to a florist, it would have cost 2-3 times more easily. Couldn't be happier with the quality of flowers we got for our wedding! Thanks so much!!!
