I LOVE mine!  I got the flowers from afloral and it cost me $40 because I had to purchase all the flowers individually but they’re all so large and full, not tiny at all

@ninefivethree: OMGosh! This is almost exactly what I want. Would you mind sharing what all you purchased??

@tranquility: Oooh! I like this too! This wedding planning thing has led me to realize that I’m an undercover flower addict. I had no idea.

@katiedee: I got it from afloral.com.  I used 6 cream anemones, 4 cream hydrangeas, 5 cream peonies, and 6 cream roses.

I spent a grand total of $106 by buying Joann’s flowers, ribbon, and beads, using a ton of awsome coupons, and a small amount of gift certificate money.  With that, I was able to make 1 bride’s bouquet, 4 bridesmaids bouquets, 5 groom/groomsmen bouts, 2 father bouts, 1 grandfather bout, and 2 grandmother corsages.  All I still need is a mother corsage.

I highly suggest greatly varying the sizes of the flowers in the bouquets.  Get some big fancy flowers, some medium-sized ones, and a TON of small filler-flowers.

I am thrilled with the results!  Here are some pictures.

I got the peonies at JoAnn’s. I made 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, and my bouquet for $140.

@Oribel013690 You did an amazing job!  I’m impressed both at the price and the final product!

These are mine, i love them! I decided artificial flowers because i am in Australia and tulips wilt very quickly. The photo doesn’t do them justice, they are even better in person.
