- Wedding: January 2014
I was wondering if anone can give me some ideas about making a pearl bouquet. I’m trying to do our wedding on a budget, our wedding is also abroad so instead of stressing about florists/me making the floral bouquets when we arrive, I thought pearl bouquets would be transportable and can be made beforehand.
Can you advise what gauge/or mm wire you used and also how many metres? I’m trying to find a cheaper gold/brass coloured wire (craft or florist) but they are much more expensive than just aluminium. I might just have to opt for aluminium to keep costs down.
From research on the board I can see most people have used a mixuture of 8-10mm pearls. So will order some of those.
This is my dream bouquet to give you an idea of size! I’ve already got some clear crystals to add a bit of sparkle.
Any advice would be weclome! Also, would love to see your crafty creations and what you had/plan to to have on your wedding day. xxx
