So I am pretty craftsy and am good with my hands. I am really tempted to buy wholesale flowers to make my bouquet and centerpieces for a fraction of the cost. I know you need to rehydrate wholesale flowers when you receive them, but I am willing to do all that prep work. Has anyone else considered doing this? Or has done it and has tips to give?
For my boquey i got a $12 bouquet at Zehrs the morning of and taped it with floral tape then tied a ribbon on Super easy and cant get more cost effective. Plus i got exactly what i wanted because i picked the flowers out myself

I was thinking of that, but my fiance and I are hoping to have a small and simple wedding (if that is at all possible 😂). So hopefully it shouldn't be too bad. But then maybe I am just overly hopeful and optimistic.
I think of you have the crafting ability. Go you! Awesome! However. Usually the 2-3 days before your wedding is hectic beyond belief. And for me personally. That is a service that is worth paying for. One less thing on my plate is my thought.
I am using Craft Flower they were recommended by a good friend who used them. So far they have been amazing to work with. I am getting a custom design and they are extremely quick to respond and send updates.
Depending on your confidence and how you feel about the wholesaler I would try and order a smaller batch and make almost a mock bouquet just invase things aren't what you expected. You don't want to add extra stress a few days before the wedding
