Little bit of a shout out to my incredibly clever Mum. She was quite sick recently, and spent a lot of time on bed rest. Being a very creative and crafty woman, she decided that she would have a go at making my my bouquet.
She has been working on different flowers, and this week she sent me up a couple of photos of what she has so far.
Keep in mind shes just tied the stems together loosely, without really arranging them to give us an indication of size and the general look of it. I’m so proud of her and I’m in LOVE with it! Can’t wait to get my hands on this bad boy when we visit, and arrange it and bind the stems properly. 🙂

That is a gorgeous bouquet! So special that she made it for you too! Keepsake! Your daughter (if you have one) could use it for her wedding down the road!
@kianabear06: I was going to do mine out of paper too… I sat down with my stepmom the other night for our first attempt at it (with tissue and crepe paper) and boy oh boy, I am NOT good at making paper flowers LOL, so I think I have changed my mind. My stepmom made some really pretty ones, so I am going to use the ones she makes as part of the decor for the venue.
I suggest attempting to make them NOW, since your wedding is only a couple months away! Good luck!
