I don’t know if you are interested in doing something outside the box of a “traditional” bouquet… But I happen to love the diy large, singluar flower bouquets. I have done a trial run, and they are very easy to make yourself, and cheaper than regular flowers. They definitley make a statement!

Go to Hobby Lobby, and check out their ‘real touch’/’true touch’ flowers!! Those are what I used for mine, and I loved my bouquet!!

@isabelle_86:  Check eBay! Their are people who arrange fake flowers and sell them in lots!

I looked at one that was a bridal bouquet, 3 bridesmaid bouquets, 6 buttonieres, 6 corsages for like $40, and it was GORGEOUS!

I have found some really pretty DIY pomander balls. Go to your local crafts store. Buy whatever size styrofoam ball you want. Get some hot glue or super glue, whatever you have and glue the flowers on the styrofoam base all around so it looks like a ball of flowers. You can also glue a pretty ribbon or string to the ball so they have something to hold on to. Here are some photos for inspiration.

Our colors are purple (eggplant) and silver too! So far i’ve done my bouquet and my toss bouquet. I got my white calla lillies at hobby lobby for $0.99 a stem when they had the 50% off floral sale (they have it about once a month). They’re made of a rubber type material and they are the most realistic artificial flowers i’ve seen.

Here’s a link for the smaller ones (what I used):

I don’t have pics of my bouquets yet but they look like this:

I took the white ribbon all the way down on mine though and then i’m going to add skinny silver and purple ribbon laced up the white like this:

Have you thought about using dried lavender bouquets?  It’s not fake flowers but you can get it dried so you can assemble the bouquets in advance.  I think that looks really pretty.  Purple is one of my colors too and I’m thinking of doing something like this…if I can find the right color lavender.  I didn’t realize that some varieties of lavender are really a blue-ish color until I went to the flower market to search.

I don’t really see them on their website, but they put them on sale a lot for 50% off, that’s when I stocked up on mine!!

 

Here’s my bouquet…
