due to budget restraints, we decided to go the artificial route with our flowers. i was up until 3am this morning working on them and i’m so happy with how they turned out! i used mainly solas (tapioca/balsa wood) and added some silks for softness and fullness. i used a mix of plastic and preserved fillers and wrapped the stems with floral wire and tape, then burlap.
here are the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets:
and my bouquet (just a little bigger than the BM’s):
and here is a center piece (in bad lighting)- my great grandmother collected tea kettles and we’re using them as vases for our center pieces:
what do you gals think?

Wow, looks awesome! Do you mind sharing how much everything cost? Did you find a good bulk website or somewhere local to order from?
