- Wedding: November 2013
I’m a recent bee who is pretty lost in wedding planning and boy have I found some useful tools thanks to all of you.. With the help of so many of you I was able to create my wedding bouquet.. I think it turned out pretty nice for a first time try.. What do u think? And I must say it was very inexpensive to make.. I wanted a different look for my bridal bouquet rather than the traditional flowers and I saw this gorgeous beooch bouquet on Etsy but the price was ridiculous.. It was selling for $250!! Well I’m so glad I went with DIY because I paid -$195 to make mine!!
This is what I used to make it and the cost of materials:
Satin purple roses (x2)- $2.50 ea = $5
12 brooches- $45 (28th St. Manhattan, NY)
metal wire- $.99 (dollar tree)
pliers- $.99 (dollar tree)
sewing pins- $.99 (dollar tree)
white silk napkin- $.99 (dollar tree)
purple ribbon- (already had at home)
broken pearl necklace
hot glue gun
This is the before and after pictures.. Hope I’m able to help some of you bees like you helped me.. 😉 Good luck!!
