Are you looking to have that little bit of creative freedom to style your own flowers on your wedding day, but don’t want the stress of having to prepare your bouquet and those for your bridesmaids and groomsmen? Then this brilliant new part DIY wedding flowers service that we are introducing you to today could be just the thing you are looking for.
Floribunda Rose one of our wonderful recommended floral designers is launching a brilliant new service where you can order your styled bouquets and buttonholes accompanied by buckets of British grown flowers to style your wedding venue yourself. To showcase their offerings they enlisted the help of Amy Singer Art to create these beautiful illustrations which we just love.
To explain more about the service it would only be fair if we now pass you over to Sarah of Floribunda Rose to tell you a little bit more about it all…
A new buckets and bouquets service
I am delighted to announce that as of June this year we will be collaborating with Buckets of Blooms to bring you a fabulous new service. There will be ribbons from Pompom Blossom and British grown Roses from The Real Flower Company.
This is for those of you who would like to buy buckets of gorgeous home grown flowers to do some of your wedding flowers yourselves, but would also love to have beautiful bouquets, buttonholes and corsages professionally made for you, by us, and finished with your choice of beautiful hand dyed raw silk ribbons.
How the service works
With this service there is a set price for each of our products, no matter which styles you go for, there is no minimum order, but it is a first come first served service and only one order will be accepted for each available date.
The beauty of this service is that there’s no minimum order and there is a flat rate for each item no matter which colours/flowers you go for.
Bridal bouquets are £110 for any of the 3 styles, bridesmaids bouquets are £50 each, the groom’s buttonhole is £10, bunto he’s for the groomsmen are £8 each, cor sages for the ladies are £12 each, buckets of flowers are £35 per bucket (which is yours to keep – no return necessary), and decorated jam jars are available for £1 each.

Your Personal flowers
At Floribunda Rose we will work closely with Buckets of Blooms to ensure that the colours of your personal flowers beautifully compliment your overall wedding flowers. We will design and create beautiful bouquets in your choice of three styles:
1) The more Traditional hand tied bouquet “Isabel”
2) The Natural hand tied bouquet “Amelia”
3) The Wild and whimsical bouquet “Ophelia”
Buttonholes and corsages will be made using flowers and foliages from Buckets of Blooms and will compliment your bouquets and DIY buckets. They will be finished with your choice of silk ribbons from Pompom Blossom or twine and supplied with pearl pins and presented in mini glass bottles. They will be ready to collect from our workshop at the same time as your DIY flower buckets.

If you would like to add scented garden roses to any of your personal flowers these will be sourced from The Real Flower Company from June through September (they look beautiful and smell absolutely divine!) and are available for an additional cost.
All of our flowers are packaged with recyclable materials – your bouquets will come in large glass ‘kilner’ style jars (which can double up as receiving vases at your venue) in kraft gift bags. Instructions on how to best care for your flowers will be included alongside your flowers. Delivery may be available, please do ask if you’d be interested.
DIY wedding flowers
Niki of Buckets of Blooms explains how the buckets side of the collaboration works:
“We will select and condition beautiful British flowers and foliage in colours to compliment your chosen wedding palette from the best of the seasonal flowers available. Typically, we will select 3 focal flowers, 4 filler flowers and 1 foliage with approximately 8 stems of each to enable you to create lovely arrangements of your own.
The flowers will be in buckets (which are yours to keep) of water for you to collect in good time for your event. Then you can begin the creating! Decorated jam jars are available for you to use at your event and return, or perhaps for you to send home with your guests as a momento of a happy occasion.”
Niki will even show you round her gorgeous flower field and you may even be able to see your flowers growing (depending on how far in advance of your wedding day you visit).
Either way it’s a lovely experience and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Nicki’s lovely, incredibly knowledgeable and her flowers are absolutely gorgeous too.
