I saw your post this morning and I have been looking off and on since then trying to find a picture for you. I’ve not seen this done in person but from the picture I saw it was really pretty. They had a ton of the palmetto roses and then little pieces of sweetgrass just kind of poking out for the bride and the BM’s had about 5 for their bouquets. The GM’s had a single one for their bouts and the flower girl carried a sweetgrass basket full of them. I think its a really cute and unique idea! I say go for it!  I’ll keep looking for the pic but I think its a wonderful idea!

I am passing out Palmetto Rose’s for my favors and every place I called and asked about pricing asked me if I was interested in having a bouquet!!  I would call around places and just ask them what they could possibly do for you and see if they had more pictures.

Cheapest I could find was $200.00 for 150, I’d be buying them through my wedding planner so I’m not sure what company they are with. But my grandpa actually knows how to make them and offered to do it free of charge! He’s kind of old though so I may just be buying them. If you find somewhere cheaper let me know πŸ™‚

We have friends and family in SC and Charleston & we have always had a love for Sweetgrass.  While it doesn’t really work with my daughter’s “theme”, she wanted to use sweetgrass somewhere so we bought enough of the roses to make her toss bouquet.  Just for fun, we also made each of the bridesmaids, a single one for the night of the rehearsal.   The picture isn’t very good but hopefully it will show what you can do with them.  We paid $1 a piece from some of the boys down on the walk by the pineapple fountain a few weeks back.  They are typically about $2 each at The Market.  Hope this gives you an idea of what can be done with them.

I’m using the palmetto rose for my grooms and groomsmen’s boutinere’s.  I was going to use them for the bridesmaid, however it does get costly.  Average rose cost $5 at the market.  The problem with using the young boys is that they tend to seperate because they aren’t made tightly.  I did buy a small bouquet of 10 for $20 from a vendor in the market.  My corsages are going to be a sweetgrass loop with spray, thistle and a cream rose.  The ladies at the market are quite familliar with making the bouquets though.  Ask them, tell what size rose, and how big a bouquet you want.  It can’t cost anymore than a normal florist shop for the bouquet if you go straight to the vendor.  Good luck.
