- Wedding: June 2012
Well bees, with Fi out of town I have been hard at work on my DIYs. Last night I completed the bridesmaid hairpieces and wanted to know what you all think! I made the big pink flower out of individual silk rose petals, and also attached two little blue flowers and one white one with a pearl center. The little flowers are facing outwards, so that when the comb is in they look like a flower tucked behind the ear, sort of.
My goal with the hairpieces was to tie the whole thing together — the BMs will be in blue dresses, and the other wedding color is pink so I’m lining the aisle with rolled-up colored tulle with more of the pink silk rose petals pinned onto it (I’ll take pictures of how this turns out later but I promise it looks better than it sounds, haha). I’m using those same blue flowers in my aisle decorations, so I was thinking the hair combs would really be the thing that unites all the decor during the ceremony.
I also did a first attempt at a toss bouquet. I’m not sure how I feel about it. It needs something, I think. I know there isn’t enough green with it yet, but other than that, any ideas on how to make it better? I have one more silk rose that’s the white-with-pink-tips I could add in, but I’m not sure that’s what it needs. (and I’m still working on the parachute haha it’s quite a challenge!)
