Bridal Bouquet Spending Down. Is DIY to blame?

weddiung statistics
wedding statsThe latest wedding industry statistics issued by The Wedding Report shows brides are spending less for bridal bouquets compared to this time last year. The average cost spent fell to $136 compare to $154 in 2008. With the wedding Do-it-yourself sector growing at a phenomenal rate, it may be that bride's are finding more inspiration to roll up their sleeves and create their own bridal bouquets themselves. Maybe that is why the average cost of wedding centerpieces are falling at such a drastic rate. What are your thoughts?


  1. I did all the flowers for my wedding.. and if I had my time back, that would be one of the first things I'd change.

    Sure, it was nice to have control as I go, but a lot of the flowers I'd ordered (online and shipped to me) were broken, some never opened, etc etc.

    I spent the day of my rehearsal racing around trying to get my centerpiece / etc flowers finished, and the morning of my wedding, I was late for photos because I was trying to get the lilies to open, and make the bouquets.

    It was way too much stress, and I would have liked to be able to enjoy the experience more. Looking back, the florist's cost wasn't all that much compared to the time I gave up. :(

  2. I couldn't have said it better myself. DIY is great but you have to pick and choose carefully. Some things just add too much stress to an already stressful day.
