- Wedding: September 2009
Ok, so I really wanted to post this because when I was trying to find a unique corsage for the bride to be to wear at her lingerie shower, I couldn’t find anything. So I’m hoping this will help someone else in need. When I was getting married, my mother-in-law had tied 3 pairs of thong panties together and that’s what I wore as a corsage. Well, my friend and I got the idea from that, but we wanted to make it a little more formal. So, we bought several pairs of panties from Aerie for the bride to be and we quickly realized that we could only use one pair for the corsage unless we wanted it to be huge. We had the pair of panties and a silver ribbon. We played with it for a while to see what we could come up with, but it just wasn’t working at all. So while we were out picking up some last minute items at Hobby Lobby, we saw the artificial flowers and decided to get one single white calla lili since that is what she was using for her flowers. Then we got a little stick of wire and pearls that were meant to look like extra’s in a bouquet I guess. We used all of that together by sort of rolling the panties up and then we tucked the flower and pearl thing into the panties and tied it all together with the silver ribbon. It turned out really cute and the bride to be loved it. It was a little bit heavy to pin on with safety pin so we ended up using a hair tie to put it on her wrist, just covering the hair tie with the ribbon so you couldn’t see it on the top. Long story I know, but I hope this helps someone else. I added a picture so you could see what the finished product looked like.
