I just bought the supplies for my silk flowers. For my bridesmaids I gave them 3 daisies, 3 roses, and one hydrangea with two leaf stems. I don’t think bridesmaids have to be huge or anything. And for my bouquet I got one hydrangea, two dahlias, two calla lilies, four daisies, and 3 leaf stems. The key to making the bouquet look fuller is to use at least one big flower and then maybe smaller, less open flowers as accents around it. That’s what I did, and it saved me quite a bit of money. Here is a pic of my mock up for one of the bridesmaids bouquets.

I haven’t done dishes yet, so excuse my messy sink in the background, haha.

@orangeflame08:  I would do at least 12 flowers. I am going to do at least 12 flowers because I don’t want to carry 5lb bouquet. My bm will have small ones around 6 flowers.

@orangeflame08:  i had three different types of flowers in mine. I had dendrobium orchids, roses and mini calalilys. I think you can have quite a few different flowers as long as they look nice together. Your florist should be able to tell you some recommendations
