My corsages are ugly. I hate them. My wedding is 2 1/2 weeks away and all of my other flower things are done and look great. It’s really late in the game to switch up the flowers, as I can’t add any more to my bouquets and idk what to do. The corsages are gaudy and look fake (they are fake but still).
My coordinator and photog haven’t emailed me back and the ugly corsages are the icing on the cake for me today!
Ok Rant over.

Corsages are pretty cheap. It’s not to late to order them from a florist, and unless you need 40 of them they won’t break the bank.

Pics please? I’m sure they don’t look as bad as you think…
Also, you could ALWAYS do real flower corsages yourself and do it cheap and easy. We did ours the day of and it cost maybe $20 in real flowers & supplies and they looked very good.

I can’t get a decent picture. I have no idea how to make these look ok. My boutineers and bouquets look great, but the corsages are just awful.

@jb20: Skip them. We didn’t have them and nobody missed them.
If you must do something last minute, buy single bloom peonies from Michael’s or Joann’s and hotglue pins to the back of them.

@beachbride1216: I think what you posted looks great!

@beachbride1216: I think I will just skip them. They are more headache than it’s worth at this point.

Ditto beachbride. Just do a single huge bloom.

i made mine using a little tool called a bowdabra. You just cut a long piece of tulle, and push it down into the machine vertically, tie it once it reaches the bottom, then hot glue leaves and a flower head into the center of the tulle. I made four corsages and they look great, and almost zero effort.
The machine is $20 at my local walmart
