And Why DIY Isn’t Always the Best Option

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and you want everything to be perfect. From the dress to the decor, every detail should reflect your personal style and vision. 

As you start planning your dream wedding, you might be tempted to DIY some of the details to save money or add a personal touch. While DIY projects can be both a fun and budget-friendly way to personalize your big day, there are some areas where it pays to leave it to the professionals. 

In this blog post, we’ll explore the benefits of working with a pro wedding florist and provide some alternative DIY projects to help you create the wedding of your dreams.

Here are just a few reasons why working with a professional wedding florist is the best choice for your big day:

Access to the Best Materials and Flowers

Wedding florists have access to a wide range of fresh, seasonal flowers and the best quality materials, from vases to ribbons and other rental items like arches, arbors, chuppahs as well as candles and decor. This means that your arrangements will look beautiful and professional, with all the colors, textures, and fragrances you’ve dreamed of. From rare blooms to unique vases, we have the industry relationships, knowledge and connections to create stunning arrangements that reflect your personal style and vision.

Skilled Design and Execution

Flower arrangements aren’t just about putting pretty flowers in a vase. A professional florist has years of experience and knowledge of design principles, color theory, and flower care. Creating beautiful floral arrangements is an art form that requires both skill and experience, and we have a combined 75+ years of experience designing and executing floral arrangements for weddings and other special events. Trust that we know how to create arrangements that complement your wedding theme, colors, and style, and will execute them to perfection.

Stress-Free Preparation and Set-Up

On your wedding day, you want to focus on enjoying every moment, not stressing about the flowers. A professional florist will take care of all the preparation, including cleaning, trimming, and conditioning the flowers, arranging your arrangements in the days leading up and keeping them fresh and vibrant. They’ll also transport them to your venue and set them up, ensuring that everything looks beautiful and is in place before your guests arrive.

Flexible and Budget-Friendly

Working with a professional wedding florist doesn’t mean breaking the bank. Florists are skilled at working within a budget and scope – and can help you make the most of your desired spend. 

Of course, many of us do have minimums for our custom floral design work (we have the keep the lights on!), but at Just Bloom’d, we understand that sometimes, some couples want convenience and availability to view and order online – we also offer comprehensive Wedding Floral Packages and wedding floral arrangements from ceremony to reception available for online ordering – everything that you would need to create your perfect wedding floral vision – with the click of a button!

We also offer flexible design options, from creating ceremony arrangements that can be repurposed for the sweetheart table and mantle arrangements to reusing ceremony ground arrangements or bouquets as reception decor.

No Cleanup Required

After the wedding, the last thing you want to do is clean up flower petals, candles, and vases. A professional florist will take care of all the cleanup, so you can relax and enjoy your honeymoon.

While DIY can be a fun and budget-friendly option for many aspects of your wedding, flowers are an area where working with a professional is truly worth the investment. With our access to the best materials, our years of experience, trainings, classes and certifications, skilled design and execution, stress-free preparation and setup, budget-friendly options, breakdown services, we promise we will help make your wedding day a dream come true.

Of course, just because we recommend leaving the flowers to the professionals doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with some other DIY wedding projects. From making your own favors and table numbers to creating a photo booth backdrop or dessert table display, there are plenty of opportunities to get creative and put your personal touch on your big day. 

Just make sure to plan ahead and give yourself plenty of time to work on these projects, and don’t be afraid to enlist the help of your friends and family. Together, you can create a wedding that’s uniquely yours and filled with love and memories that will last a lifetime.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Personalized Wedding Favors

Create personalized wedding favors that your guests will love. From homemade jam to personalized candles to mini succulents, there are endless options for creating unique and memorable wedding favors.

DIY Table Numbers

Add a personal touch to your reception tables with DIY table numbers. From rustic wood slices to elegant calligraphy to natural, woven fibers and sustainability-forward, there are plenty of ways to create table numbers that reflect your personal style.

Photo Booth Backdrop

Create a fun and memorable photo booth backdrop that your guests will love. From DIY flower walls to vintage-inspired props, there are endless possibilities for creating a photo booth that reflects your personality and style.

Use fabric to create a simple and elegant backdrop. Choose a fabric that complements your wedding theme and style, and then attach it to a sturdy frame (such as PVC pipes or a wooden frame). You can create a solid color backdrop or use patterned fabric for a more whimsical look.

Dessert Table Display

Create a stunning dessert table display that will have your guests drooling. From DIY cake stands to homemade desserts to candy jar stations, there are plenty of ways to create a dessert table that’s both eye-catching, fun, and delicious.
