I didn’t do any flowers at all; everything was greenery or non-flower organics (i.e. pods, branches, leaves, ferns, pinecones, evergreen boughs, etc.). I didn’t want a bouquet, so I carried a sable muff with a corsage attached. The red berries were NOT supposed to be there. If I hadn’t had the muff, I considered doing a brooch bouquet.

This was DH’s bout. Again with the berries! But the rest I loved.

If your colors are in the blues & silvers, you could do something similar but with either faux or painted organics. Same effect, different colors!

  • Wedding: October 2012

I’m making the bouts for my October wedding (not quite winter yet). Once I got the initial idea down they were easy to knock out.  All the boys are engineers, hence the steampunk nod ๐Ÿ™‚ 

 

I found a great website that has tons of preserved flowers that I used instead of fresh.  http://www.save-on-crafts.com There are a ton of great resources there for any DIYers.
