Do-It-Yourself Wedding Flowers Help Save Time and Money

Tulsa, Okla. (PRWEB) June 21, 2007 -- June is here, which means wedding season is upon us. It means pretty dresses and pretty flowers, to be sure, but those pretty dresses and pretty flowers can cost a pretty penny. According to, the average wedding costs $10,000 and about 8 percent to 10 percent of that is the cost of flowers. A thousand dollars just for flowers?

Facing high costs for many wedding items, many brides-to-be are turning to the do-it-yourself field for wedding planning. However, while it may help bring their budget under control, many brides simply do not have the time to do it all themselves. DIY guides and resources help crafty brides maximize their efforts and minimize their stress.

"DIY flowers help brides stretch their budget and add a personal touch to the wedding ceremony and reception. With a little guidance and organization, they can create designs that will absolutely amaze their wedding guests."

Wedding resources like Wedding Flowers-DIY ( help brides to focus their time and utilize their effort in areas where it counts. Lind's Web site,, offers resources that include a number of tips for potential DIY brides.

"People don't realize how much you pay for convenience and they also don't realize that you can do these things on your own. It's so simple! It's not rocket science. It's just a different approach that requires a little more time and research."
