Wow, both those beaded examples are GORGEOUS!  


You could try making one flower and pairing it up with some real flowers from the market as a test run, and see if you like that mix or prefer all beaded.


I love the look of sunflowers with blue accent flowers, that’s among my favorite floral combinations so I think you can’t go wrong here no matter what you decide to do!

I agree with the PP. Make a few and try them mixed with live flowers and then decided if that’s enough..or if you want to make the entire bouquet with beaded flowers. I think it will be gorgeous either way.

I’m kind of in the mindset of “All or nothing” in regards to the beaded flowers.  However, I agree with the other bees – make a few and mix them to see if they work.  I’d probably make a beaded sunflower and then mix in perriwinkle blue flowers.  Or, to make it shimmer and pop, the sunflowers with blue beaded flower accents – small ones.

I agree with the others.  You need to test aome ideas.  The other thing is to look in Google images to get more thougths and ideas.


The other thing is you could make it mostly beaded with just accents of the fresh flowers.

Hey Bees…I see that you found my beaded bouquet 🙂

Cleve_girl01…I think it is craziness because that was my bridal bouquet and I was running around ragged trying to get it done in time and I had many 3 to 5 years of experience making beaded flowers at that time.

I’ve taught many a person on how to make flowers and it’s relatively easy to pick up the concept… but it’s the practice (like anything) that will make an exceptional flower…  so it’s not something that this crazy bride will recommend anyone to learn a new skill in admist all the crazy wedding planning. I wished I had started making my bouquet two years prior to the wedding.

For a more cost-effective flower that you can incorpate with fresh (yes, I LOVE that idea and have had florists ask for my flowers to incorporate with their fresh ones)… you may be intersted in this kit I’ve put together … more DIY with assembly and a fraction of what my normal flowers would be…b/c a lot of the time is in the assembly as well.



I’m so tickeld that you love my flowers, really 🙂

I think it would look awesome if you did a larger beaded flower in the center, with slightly smaller natural flowers surrounding it.  I love the look of the beads- if I hadn’t already started a  brooch bouquet I would be using this idea!
