Wedding colors are purple and orange (in the fall). Flowers in the bouquets will be snapdragons, lilies, and some filler flower to give a pop of those fall colors (an suggestions on what filler flower, btw??) I’m using poinsettias too, because I bought a buch after Christmas last year. I’ll use them in place of liies in a few places.
Here’s the stuff I made! Got the berry picks for the boutonnieres at Michaels after Christmas (for DIRT cheap!!) 😉 And I did wrist corsages for the mothers, grandmothers, and candlelighters (who are girls, is that weird?).

I really like the boutonnieres and the ring pillow, something seems a bit off about the wrist corsages though. I think it’s that the ribbon is as wide as the actual corsage part is. And I’m not going to lie, I think the flower girl pomander looks kind of cheap (sorry!). The christmas ornament and the curled ribbon just kind of look like you went to a clearance bin after the holidays and stuck what you found together and added the butterfly to make it go with everything else. I love the idea for a pomander for the flower girl; have you considered making a little one with fake flowers?

@MandaMack I’m also making flower pomanders for each pew (and it’s NO challenge), so I thought it would be stupid to have the flower girl carry one that’s pretty much the exact same, even with just a few flowers different. To me, THAT would look cheap. You just gave the flower girl the same thing that’s hanging on the pews! IMO.
However, I have considered at least taking the ribbon off, since it NEVER stays curled right! But it looks like something’s missing without it. I liked the gold and silver, since I’m using both metal tones in my wedding. Kind of an antique look. If I change my mind about it, no big deal, I can use it as a decoration elsewhere. But I figured since my wedding was relatively close to the holidays, it would be okay.
