Growing your own flowers?

So we're going to use calla lilies. I always have a huge garden of them that are gorgeous. Has anyone used flowers from their own garden? I don't know anything about making bouquets, but I've got time to learn? Is there anywhere that has classes on floral design?

    I dont know about growing your own, but there's a class in Fort Worth to teach you how to arrange them!

    Thank you! A bit of a drive, but if I can't find one in Dallas, it might work.

    Thats a great idea! I never thought about growing my own. Well I don't have a green thumb. My bamboo plant died on me. How does that happen!!!!!

    Funny thing is, I didn't think about it until I was looking for bulbs to plant this spring. :p

    I'm pretty sure there is a bridal floral arranging class at Bows and Arrows - its on Greenville in Dallas.  I need to call and get their updated schedule so I can go to a class too!

    If you have a green thumb by all means go for it.  I think you should be proud that you can do that and it would have greater meaning if I was able to use my own flowers but I kill everything.
