I helped a friend make her daughter’s – she wanted it colorful and easy. We bought pre-made bouqets from Trader Joe’s, trimmed the stems and added ribbon. Each one took us just a few minutes. So easy and they looked great! For the bridal bouquet we added roses.

I would also suggest going to your local farmers market or something similar! Their flowers are usually so much prettier than the ones you find in grocery stores, and a greater variety with flowers often used by professional florists! Though Costco did have some beautiful peonies last week… ๐Ÿ˜ just make sure you either keep the flowers in water in a fridge if you want to slow the blooming process or keep them in water in a warmer place if you need them to bloom quicker!

ahsoka :  Wow!! I love this!! We had a Star Wars themed wedding, but went a little more subdued because our wedding was so tiny (less than 20). My bouquet was made of Star Wars comics and pages from my favourite books!

alexweddingSo we made all of these the night before the wedding haha. It was my friend (the bride) + me and 2 other bridesmaids. It is actually one of my (and the brides) favourite memories from the wedding. She got the flowers from the grocery store and costco 1-2 days in advanced.
