DIY Weddings and Special Events

Besides our full-service wedding and special events services, we also offer DIY weddings and events services. DIY weddings and events are a more cost-effective way to plan your special event. They’re also really fun to do!

What is a DIY Event?

For DIY events, we will cut and fill buckets with 60-80 stems of the beautiful, fresh cut flowers that are grown in our own fields! We will match your colour theme. You can use the flowers to make your own arrangements and/or bouquets!

We will choose from the best flowers that are blooming in our field during the week of your event. These buckets are filled with a mix of focal, accent, and foliage flowers. If you would like to have a bucket filled with only focal flowers (like dahlias, sunflowers, peonies, etc.), we will provide you with a 25% discount. Please contact us if you’d like to know what will be in the season around the date of your event. We will also provide you with a per stem price at this time. This service is available from July until October.

For full-service weddings, please contact us for more information and for pricing details.

What Our Customers Say

  • I had a lot of fun making the “Living Picture Frame” tonight… Great hospitality! I recommend going to other workshops! Thanks so much! I can't wait for the next one!
  • Hilde is the best. My daughter wanted to use local small family businesses for her wedding. She wanted sunflowers and was so happy to find Makkink’s. The sunflower centrepieces, bridal bouquet, bridesmaid’s bouquets, and groom’s boutonniere were all wonderful. Hilde was very helpful, very friendly, and an artist with wild flowers. Her prices cannot be beat! I will definitely recommend this family farm to everyone looking for wedding flowers. In fact, I would recommend Makkink’s for flowers for any occasion!
  • Beautiful flower arrangements and home décor! I highly recommend checking them out.
  • Hilde is a family friend and a great business lady! She is super wonderful to work with and makes some amazing products! I have been to a workshop and loved my finished product to take home! She did the flowers for my wedding and they turned out exactly how I had dreamed of! I would recommend her to anyone.
  • I bought a beautiful bouquet of flowers today and a bunch of sunflowers for the centrepiece on my table. I absolutely love them. Thank you!
