Do It Yourself (DIY) Weddings Bulk Specialty Blooms by the Bucket
From May through October, Wind Haven Farm sells our sustainably grown seasonal blooms by the bucket for weddings and events. The buckets include a mixture of lush blooms, textural elements, and foliages that are seasonally available at that time.
Some things to consider when choosing the DIY option:
This can be a very budget friendly option.
DIY can be FUN!
Make sure you have enough time and volunteers to help you create your arrangements. Time can run short the week before a wedding, and flowers need to be arranged the day before or the day of the event to look their best.
Figure out a space where you will be able to arrange the flowers, this is sometimes messy work. The flowers will need to be kept in water both before arranging and after. Also flowers should be kept in an air conditioned indoor space until right before the event begins.
Have the right tools on hand, clippers, ribbon, clean vases/vessels, floral tape, floral wire.
Have a plan to transport arrangements if they are made offsite. Heavy boxes with newspaper to wedge in vases works great.
We do not offer delivery on bulk flowers, so you will need to arrange to pick up your order 1-2 days before your event.
You will need to provide your own very clean buckets to pick up your order. Or you can rent our buckets for $2 ea. and return them after the event.
If you have thought through the items above and believe this would be a perfect option for you, here is how it works:
Please fill out the DIY Wedding Form Below and send it to us.
We will confirm that our DIY service is available for your date.
After confirmation, we will ask for a 50% down payment. The remaining balance will be due when you pick up your flowers at the Wind Haven Farm studio. We only accept cash and checks payable to Wind Haven Farm.
