Maybe I'm the only professional event designer commenting on this but I couldn't disagree with the other comments more. I do not mean any disrespect to this man but this arrangement is awful! His technique and knowledge are obviously there but the taste and style are lacking. Not only does the design look like something from the 80s, the construction is poor. Those roses look out of place and the general shape looks like something an amateur would do. Someone mentioned the hydrangeas dying and the answer is yes and no. They won't die being in the water-soaked wet oasis (they only need to last for about 24 hours in the oasis) but hydrangeas are very picky about their conditioning and environment. Most DIY brides would not have the equipment or knowledge to make the hydrangeas look like that before the wedding. In other words, your hydrangeas would wilt before you even started trying to arrange them. And then once you make them, where will you store them? Don't underestimate how long these take. He already had his flowers conditioned and ready to assemble. Trying to make 20 of these on your wedding day is seriously a bad idea. Making 20 of these the day before without a cooler is disastrous. If you want your wedding to look like a hot mess/cheap/waste of money, then try to do this yourself. Otherwise, get your head out of the clouds and reign in your expectations. It's your wedding and you want it to look nice; I get it. But expecting to have what looks like professionally arranged, large and lush flower arrangements on every table at your wedding is like expexting to walk away with a Mercedes with a Ford Focus budget. (speaking to those with unreasonably small budgets and even more unreasonably high expectations.) Choose something more reasonable and hire a professional to do it. For every 1 story I hear of, "I did my own flowers and they were beautiful," I hear and see 20 more that look like a kindergarten project and the bride wanted to pull her hair out from the stress. You're going to do what you want to do and that's fine but as someone who has been in this industry for 12 years, I feel I have to give you "the talk" I give my brides who want $500 arrangements with orchids dripping everywhere for $50/table. Be reasonable! And please either don't do the arrangement in this video or put your magic in it and make it prettier than what was shown. Happy planning!
