Should I DIY my wedding flowers? Six Reasons to Hire a Professional Florist for Your Wedding

DIY weddings are an enormously popular trend in the United States right now. A lot of brides want to save money and have more control over the process. When it comes to your wedding flowers, is it really a good idea to do them yourself? Here are six reasons why you should consider hiring a professional florist to handle your wedding flowers.

Cost: It's not uncommon for DIY brides to spend as much on raw materials as they would have spent on finished products designed by a professional.

Waste: Flowers are fragile. A person with little to no experience is more likely to damage them and you'll wind up with fewer useable flowers than you paid for.

Difficulty: Suppose you wanted to learn to paint, and on your first day you decide to paint The Mona Lisa. Will your first attempt look like the original? Of course not! It's the same with that bouquet you love on Pinterest. Floral design is a complex skill set that takes years to master. Professionals have the skills already. Allow yourself the benefit of their experience. A professional florist will get you more "look" while using fewer stems, saving you money.

Time: You probably don't want to prepare and serve all the food at your wedding. It's your day, do you want to spend it working on flowers? Don't add another layer of stress to your wedding. Let someone else worry about it.

Quality: Your Florist has access to a greater selection of fresher, higher quality flowers and greenery than you can buy from the warehouse club. Your florist also has a gigantic cooler to store everything so your flowers will be dewy fresh for the big day.

Creativity: Professional florists have the knowledge and creative skills to turn your ideas into something even more beautiful than you imagined.

As you can see, there are a lot more variables to consider besides cost. The total value includes the quality of the finished product and the time and stress you will save yourself. Before you commit to DIY your flowers, talk to your local florist. You might be surprised by what they have to offer!
