@lazybee: Looks great!  I’m interested in hearing more about how you did it and what “florist tape” is and what it costs.  I’m planning on doing my own flowers but haven’t really looked into bouquet making just yet.  Thanks! 🙂

Thanks so much for posting!

I’m really interested in your wedding since mine will be in Maui as well!  Where was it?

I will definitely be heading over to Safeway in Maui then since I will also be making my bridesmaids bouquets.  My bouquet is included with my wedding ceremony, but I didn’t want to spend the big amount they wanted for extra bouquets!

@lazybee: Oh my goodness, THANK YOU!  I loved the tutorial and will be doing a trial run of mine soon (even though I have lots of time, I wanted to base a lot of my colours on a flower I like – better make sure it will fit into a bouquet properly first).

We’re also planning on going to Hawaii for our honeymoon, so I think I’ll be bookmarking this thread to re-read your advice. 😉

@lazybee:  Thank-you so much for all of the info!  We’re just doing the wedding in Maui and not doing anything back at home here, so we expect to have about 40 people which was too big for a beach wedding and I wanted it to be a bit more planned out beforehand.  So we’ve booked our wedding and reception through the Royal Lahaina Resort which is on Ka’anapali Beach.  Basically it’s a hotel and we’ll have the ceremony and reception out on the lawn that fronts onto the beach.  I’m having the ceremony at 4:00 and the reception starting at 6:00 so I guess that means the sun will set during dinner, which will be nice!

That is super helpful information about the flowers.  I will be getting my bouquet and leis for myself and Fiance through the wedding package, but will be looking for flowers or bouquets for Maid/Matron of Honor and my Bridesmaid or Best Man as well as leis instead of corsages/boutonneires for groomsmen and parents etc.  It’s good to hear that Costco had tropical flowers too since that’s what will be in my bouquet.  I’m also going to attempt to make my own centerpieces so will be looking for flowers for that!

wow thanks for posting, I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to do my own but now I’m prepared to at least give it a go!
