With stores such as Safeway and Whole Foods allowing customers to buy individual bulk flowers, many people are turning to DIY YouTube tutorials to create event floral décor. This is a great way to cut costs and personalize florals to fit your design. However, using florals from corporate stores do have limitations. First, the flowers available at these type of stores are seasonal, which mean no peonies available in November. Also, you will be responsible for transporting flowers from start to finish, plus keeping florals fresh after creating the arrangements. All of these steps take a lot of planning and management. While we understand the importance of finding opportunities to cut costs while planning an event, it is important to take consideration all aspects and while weighing your pros and cons.
