A little flower inspiration

From the very beginning I knew that I wanted to have sunflowers at our wedding. Mr. B doesn't have an opinion on flowers. My problem is that I am not very confident with the local florists in town. They are just your standard florist shops, nothing really special that sets them apart. I would probably get very traditional flowers and likely over pay as well. Mom & I decided that we could DIY the flowers. I did have to talk her out of using silk flowers. I just don't like how silk sunflower look most of the time. After finding a few wholesale sunflower suppliers online I started searching google for inspiration.

Here are some of the centerpiece ideas:



I loved that these were JUST sunflowers in vases. For a DIY girl that has never done flowers this makes it much less frightening.

And a hand tied bouquet for me is DIYable as well:



I don't need many boutonnieres, so I don't look for them too much. I like these two:



I still need to do a trial to make sure I CAN DIY all of this, plus I have a few more ideas up my sleeve as well to give Mom & Dad's yard that extra touch.

Are you going to DIY your flowers?

You are brave! I'm sure they'll Look fabulous.I really like the 3rd pic down of the sunflowers and the old lantern.

I have heard the DIY flower route isn't as hard as you would think. i thought about doing it myself, but I have 6 Bridesmaids and I figured that would be a bit too much. Then I found a really great priced florist, so i lucked out.

You'll have to post how your trials turn out!
