In these tough economic times, we all need to look at how we can save money on our events. One of the things that I love about weddings is the flowers. They smell so good and look so pretty and I just can't help to be happy when I am around them. But why do we have to pay thousands of dollars for the flowers when we have two perfectly good hands to do them ourselves? Okay, I know that most of you are thinking...I don't know how to do bouquets and centerpieces and even more than that...I don't have the time! Well if you live in the Greater Dayton. Ohio area, you don't need to know everything about flowers to have great flower decorations that you made yourself. There is a company there called The Flower Man and they have the whole "Home Depot" mindset - You can do it, they can help. As far as being time restricted, you can make this a fun thing for your girls to do. You can have this actually be your Brides Luncheon day...reserve a table for your bridesmaids and yourself, bring in lunch and have each girl customize her own bouquet. I love the idea!
