That’s really pretty, I love that you used feathers instead of leaves. Great job!! Did you make the flowers yourself?

Hi there, yes I made it all myself, all the flowers from scratch. I found quite a few tutorials on the internet. i think it took me about 60 hours altogether to make (plus shopping time to get fabric) as an estimate. Really happy with how it turned out 🙂
This tutorial gives you some hints on how to make the softer flowers – I didn’t cut the petal shape into them though, just used circles of fabric. I found that i needed to have the rolled roses too (the ivory ones in the photo) to give it more ‘oomph’ and hold everything in place properly. they are made out of chiffon.
For the bling parts in the middle of the flowers, I bought a sparkly necklace and took the pieces off it and hot glued them into the middle.
Total cost for all materials (including fabric, pearl beads, floral wire, jewellery pieces etc) was aboiut $250, but that includes fabric for my bridesmaids one, which will be burgundy coloured – I just need to buy some coloured beads for that one. I have fabric left over so will make some more flowers to use as decorations at the wedding 🙂

this looks STUNNING!!! Did you use a foam ball to stick the flowers into or did you give them each their individual stem? would love to make my own for my wedding next year, hope you can help!

I used a small foam ball – I put all the flowers on stems, and then pushed them through the ball and out the other side (the ball is about 7 cm in diameter) i
