The bouquets I have been working on since AUGUST are finished! And they are exactly what I had in my head...it is so exciting to be able to create something and have it match up perfectly with what you had in your head, isn't it?
Alli modeled one for me:
Here's more of a close up:
And the bottom so you can see how I covered that not-especially-attractive bouquet holder. The ribbon wrap is 100% perfect but I think it's definitely close enough.
My bouquet is a touch bigger, and will have an aqua handle wrap. I found the rhinestone pins at thrift stores...a few of them are earrings that my dad used his saw/drill thingy to cut the earring part off, then I hot glued a pin back from Hobby Lobby on and pinned them into the bouquet.
So all 5 bridesmaid's bouquets are done, I'm waiting on feathers for mine. I ordered 3 inch feathers that worked nicely for the smaller bridesmaid's bouquets, but they weren't big enough for mine. I got the feathers for an amazing price from Etsy seller SimplySilverbyHeena. She's awesome, so if you need feathers check her out!
I am so thrilled with these, I can't wait to see how they look with my dress!
Want to make your own?
Here's the inspiration for my bouquet, and here's how I made the satin flowers. This is how I shaped the bouquet.
Don't want to make your own because it takes an obnoxiously lengthy amount of time? E-mail me, we'll talk!
So what do you think ladies? Don't they look 1000000x better than this attempt!
