I’m really not a DIY person. I wish I was but I’m not too crafty. Anyways, I saw this woman on Four Weddings to made her own brooch bouquet and I LOVED it. Looking up prices, however, I knew I didn’t have the patience or the money to make one. So I decided to make a really beautiful pearl and button bouquet for my wedding instead. It looks a lot easier and it doesn’t look like it will be as top heavy.
But I can’t decide! Our wedding colors are navy blue and silver. At first I was opposed to blue flowers (and I still want flowers at our wedding I think) but these buttons are beautiful colors: http://tinyurl.com/2ff3sfx. So should I do something like that as an accent color to brighten things up (since navy and silver are so dark) for the photos. Or should I do something more like : http://tinyurl.com/23meaz9 (the picture is on the first page almost all the way down)
ETA: my Fiance is freaking out about the cost. He’s really really worried that if I don’t end up calculating everything to the exact amount of wire and buttons (which I don’t know how to even estimate that) that I’ll end up spending way too much money. I probably won’t start making these bouquets without looking at a florist but I think it’s stupid he’s panicing.

I’m not exactly sure what a button bouquet is. Can you show us a picture of what the finished product would look like?

i know which one your talking about. The bride who made her own dress had that bouquet. but i liked that it had so many different colors and different jewels. But maybe you can do it mostly silver with the accent of navy blue. that would look really nice

I think the silver and blue would be lovely and I don’t think it would look too dark. I also don’t think the wire and buttons to make your bouquet would be very much, it might even be cheaper than getting an actual flower bouquet from a florist. Best of luck and post pictures once you have it done!

Is it like a brooch bouquet? I’m so confused! lol

I’m sorry I didn’t post any pictures. These are some inspiration photos: http://tinyurl.com/mtguzp
I don’t think I really like the idea of using felt and sewing it to make the flowers. But I really like the pearl bouquets. 🙂 And I do like the silver and blue idea. I think it would pop.
