I purchased all my flowers from the user accentsandpetals on Etsy…they are so beautiful, light, and very inexpensive! The whole process of attaching each flower to some wire, wrapping with floral tape, and building the bouquet took about eight hours total. My thumbs are sore, but it turned out perfectly! It’s small, simple, and exactly what I wanted!
The green flowers are actually preserved leaves!
In keeping with the wood theme, I used sticks for stems out of the bottom:

Wow, your bouquet looks amazing!! You did such a great job and now I’m inspired for my wedding! (I am deathly allergic to bees and thus, I have a huge bee phobia and I’ve been so nervous that fresh flowers outdoors will attract bees to me and my bridal party.) Thanks for sharing and thanks for the inspiration 🙂

Those are so awesome and they look great! If you dont mind me asking what was your cost to buy the flowers and make the bouquet?

@MsPanda: No problem: I spent $80.92 on it. I had the ribbon already (it was leftover from the accent sash I had added to my dress). I still have a box of leftover flowers (probably about 15-20 left over).

I am using wood flowers from accentsandpetals too! They were wonderful to work with, and the flowers are gorgeous! I am almost done with the bouquets (just bought the dried flowers for filler this weekend). I will post pictures when I am done!!!
@littlenikki: I love how you wrapped/added stems! I have been attaching the flower to wire and attaching to a styrofoam ball, I may have to try your method!! I love them!!
