Several months ago I asked for advice and pictures on making my own bouquet of carnations for my September 5th wedding. I got some fabulous advice…and someone directed me to Mrs. Flamingo’s post about her carnation bouquet….
Thanks for the great step-by-step instructions, Mrs. Flamingo! Here’s how mine turned out! I loved it….and it was so easy!

WOW! If I hadn’t already changed my mind a million and one times I would definitely think about switching to carnations. Your bouquet is beautiful, great job! The picture of it is really awesome too.

It’s so gorgeous, well done! I’m incorporating carnations into my bouquet and was thinking about doing bunches for the table centrepieces too, I might even DIY them after seeing how well yours turned out.

And to think I was going to pay someone to put my flowers together!! This looks amazing and I can bet it wasn’t hard!! I think I’ll carry red and I’ll have the girls carry the red and white ones (their dresses are going to be red) or maybe yellow?? I think gold ribbon for me!! I’m very excited!!

My bridesmaids also wore red and I made their bouquets out of hot pink and orangish carnations and green mums. The look was basically the same…just different colors.
Yes! Definately cheaper than getting someone else to do it! I’d say it took me about 1 1/2 hours to do 4 bouquets. I bought the ribbon and pins at Wal-Mart.

Can you tell me how many carnations you used for your bouquet? I’m intrested in doing this and want to get a start on some trials.

Oh my…I can hardly remember. I think I had ordered around 15 or so and it ended up not being enough so I got some more last minute from a small florist. I think total I had around 25-30. Make sure your carnations are all fresh. The ones that we picked up last minute weren’t as fresh and they died way before the others did. I was quite dissapointed cuz my bouquet didn’t last as long then.
