I bought my flowers from hobby lobby and just played with them. This is basically what I ended up with but with the stems wrapped and the pictures lighting is terrible. Look for sales and coupons is my best advice.

Here is my pom tutorial, and there is a lot of other good information from other bees too. Here is what I am ending up doing with them for the aisle decor. If you do a search for how to make a bouquet on utube, you can view a lot of different tutorials.

I made my own bridesmaid bouquets with Real Touch flowers. They look a lot more realistic than regular silks, but you have to shop around because they are more expensive. Hobby Lobby carries them and they go on 50% off sale quite frequently. I ordered mine from The Flower Depot Online and got each of my peonies for I think $6 a stem? Not bad because they were actually $10 at HL.

I also bought my bridal bouquet from wedideas.com and it was awesome, but I got it during a special sale; otherwise they are a bit pricey. 

Good luck!! 🙂

@fayefaye:

Hey there. I was thinking of doing the same thing so I searched the DIY section here on weddingbee and found a lot of inspiring ideas!

I purchased my real touch flowers from efavormart.com they were about $36 for 186 flowers!!! ( I got the silk real touch open roses in Ivory and in Cream pink) The vases I got from Michaels and then found nicer ones on saveoncrafts.com (they have a huge selection). I also got an 8″ styrofoam ball from Michaels for about $6 and hot glue gun for $4 and glue sticks for about the same price. That’s pretty much the basics of what you need to make these. You could also add bling or some other ideas on top of it like crystals inside the vase/lighted vases etc….

For a large pomander you would need about 80 flowers, but of course you could also do a medium size or small size with less, I just liked big for the centerpieces.

Search the DIY it is really helpfull!!!

P.S

I am studying for finals so I didn’t have time to make anything yet, and the flowers didn’t arrive so once I make a trial one I will upload some pic’s

I don’t know if you have a Hobby Lobby nearby but they have a premade real touch rose bouquet that is nice.  It is $40 but they run 50 % off sales at least once a month on bridal.  It could be a good start if you wanted to add more flowers.  I did my own pomanders and they are fairly easy.  I have a DIY on my profile.
