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.

We are excited to share that we are offering now:
Wedding Arranging Workshops!
Enchant your guests by creating your own unique wedding day bouquets.
This workshop allows you to create lasting bonds with your bridal party, family and friends while creating beautiful low-cost bouquets – 1 to 2 days before your wedding day.
In this group workshop, you will be supplied with all the flowers (of your choice) and materials, as well as given instructions to make your perfect bouquets. This workshop is best for those who enjoy DIY projects and flower arranging.
To arrange this workshop, please contact us to discuss the floral dreams for your big day!
What can I expect from the Wedding Arranging Workshop?
At our initial consultation, we discuss your dreams for the wedding and what we can offer. If interested, we will give you a quote for the workshop cost.
If you decide this is part of your dream wedding, a date and time will be booked for the workshop for you to create all your wedding bouquets and other floral arrangements.
This date is usually one or two days prior to your wedding day.
On this day, you will bring a group of people who are willing to help make the arrangements, all done in our shop on the farm.
All the materials are provided, as well as some snacks.
We will be there to help you and your group create beautiful wedding arrangements.
Once completed, you can bring them home or leave them in our cooler for later pick up.
Lasting memories are those we create with each other.
For full-service weddings, please contact us for more information and for pricing details.

What Our Customers Say
Beautiful flower arrangements and home décor! I highly recommend checking them out.
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!
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!
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!
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.
