Ok, I did our flowers (except my own bouquet, I ordered that one, but I could have made it, I just got lazy)

 

 

 

I ordered all the flowers off of save-on-crafts and afloral (all natural touch) except for the purple ones in the bm’s bouquets and the same ones are accents in the guys’ boutonnières, and did all the assembly myself.

 

And since I forgot to take a before picture of my groom’s bout, here it is in action, you can see my bouquet too.

I made these out of felt and they were ridiculously cheap and easy.

Derp, I forgot to show you the bouquets and corsages! Embarassed

I made these corsages for mothers and grandmothers:

And here is my felt bridal bouquet! Oh, I love it so much. I made my bouquet and seven very similar bridesmaid’s bouquets, but theirs don’t have blingy centers on the flowers. I paid about $200 for supplies to make 8 bouquets, 3 corsages, and 10 boutonnieres. I did already have a lot of basic craft supplies in my stash, like a glue gun, some blingy jewelry findings, and pin backs. I bought felt, floral stems, and extra glue sticks. Compared to what I hear people pay for real flowers, it was a very cheap project, and everyone oohed and aahed over them. I was SO PROUD. Here’s another pic of a bunch of bouquets together.

The bridesmaid bouquets were simple white carnations.

I’ve been making two kinds of flowers that are being used throughout the wedding: painted paper roses and kusudama origami flowers.  So I did the same with bouts/corsages.

Here are my bouts-origami paper flowers:

 

And here are corsage pins for my attendants (not the BMs, but the attendants):

Right now, I am still leaning towards real flower bouquets for me and my two BMs because I love to press them into my face and smell them 🙂  FI’s bout will be a single (real) white rose.

@amandasouthcarolina:  thank you!! Just one word of caution: TIME. Over the course of 6 months,I put about 60 hours of work into our flowers. Yes, 60. I like crafting, a LOT, but it was insane.

@amandasouthcarolina:  We did our own flowers/boutonnieres

All flowers were purchased at trader joes (we bought pre made flower arrangements with the flowers we wanted and then re arranged them)
