Pro Tips For Saving Money

If you are thinking of going the DIY route for wedding, think about logistics, timing and your expertise. Not every DIY project will save you money.

Consider what to outsource and what you can actually do on your own.

In order to save money on your boutonniere, you can use only greenery for the groomsmen and the actual flower piece for the groom!

When I first made my first boutonniere for my client, I got into a better groove after my 3rd one.

The more you make, the more better you get, definitely leave the one you will be making for the groom last! You can even practice on fake flowers first before attempting fresh flowers. 

Boutonnieres are definitely quick, simple and easy to customize with whatever flowers you are having in your bridal bouquet.
