I am also DIY for my flowers.  Are those baby hydrengas?   What kind of flower is the white spray/green?  It is a beautiful filler flower.  (I have my main flowers picked out but I sometimes think its the filler that finishes it off).  What greens did you use?  Do you recommend any wholesale companies?  Thank you!  The bouquet is beautiful.

Thanks that was really helpful. What temperature would you reccomend keeping the flowers at when they’re done? My wedding is in August so I will have the choice of a fridge or a “cool” dark garage. How many days in advance can I make the bouquets and bouts? Thanks!!!

OMG im so glad to have found this. I plan on DIY flowers for my whole wedding. I was thinking about buying them from costco and having them ship it to me. DO you think that they would survive the trip to me though?Or would they be dead?

Also, are hydrangeas sensitive?? I was told that those aren’t good flowers to arrive in a box because they get limp. Do you think thats truE?

I was also thinking about maybe buying the flowers where i live(LA)2days before they wedding. And driving to my wedding location (6hrs away). But..it will be in September and i dont know if they would survive the heat and the car ride. What do you think??

Sorry for all my questions im just not sure what to do.
