I started watching videos online on how to make bouquets and boutonnieres. Why in the world do we pay so much for someone to do this for us? It only takes them 3-5 minutes in a vid to make one. Now I know it'll take me longer than an expert, but still. After seeing what they actually do, I can't imagine paying hundreds and hundreds for it.
For example, look how easy a calla lily bouquet is: http://youtu.be/QgslS3YgjzY
(Ha! How old is this vid? That lady makes me laugh. But that's not the point.) Florists charge a ton for these just because they are popular! Seriously, you just pick up 12-24 flowers and tape them together!
If I change my mind after DIYing silk flowers, I'll let you know.
I admit it's a possibility. I may stick to things like the callas because they are simpler.
