Hi!

i wanted to let you know that i used wooden roses and couldn’t rate them highly enough! 

I’ve attached a picture I’ve JUST taken in my living room, so this bouquet isn’t perfect, it could do with some tidying as it’s now 8 months old and lives on my side table and gets a bit crushed. Anyway!

I did my large bouquet, 3 bridesmaids bouquets, 12 buttonholes and the cake topper. Few people realised they weren’t real and me and my bmaids still have their bouquets on display as they’ll never die!

I got married in winter and i knew (in the UK) i wouldn’t be able to have the same choice of flowers in my colours. This way i’d finished my flowers a month in advance which took the pressure off and they looked great!

I think i used 40 roses in my bouquet (a mixture of bud roses in purples and ivory) and open roses in lavender and ivory) and the bridesmaids had 25 bud roses, the buttonholes 1 rose, a leaf and some grass. The whole lot cost me £50 which i think is about $75 and it was one of my “cheats” that i was over the moon with.

If you’re happy to do without real, fresh flowers these are a great alternative.

 

Good luck!

I am thinking about doing wooden roses also.  Flowers are just so expensive.  My girls are using muffs and I am thinking about pinning bouts on them.  I think for all the flowers, I am running about $100.  Not bad at all.  Sorry, I don’t have any inspiration photos for you, I will post when I use them in 4 months! 🙂
