I already know I am not using real flowers….too many allergies for myself and my kids, but I thought about incorporating my crativity somehow and I was wondering if it would be too tacky or very creative to make crocheted flowers? It also would be less expensive. I think aybe if too much was used it would be overboard and very tacky.

I don’t think it’s tacky at all! It adds a really sweet sort of rustic/DIY feel to the wedding for sure (which is a style I personally love). 🙂

Have you thought about crepe paer flowers or coffee filter flowers? Martha Stewart website has lots of ideas for those and other paper flowers.

I think it depends on the overall style of the wedding. If this is the only thing that’s a really crafty or fabric look, then I don’t think it works. If it complements other crafty-style elements, then it can work.

@Rrabbetsgirl: Yes those coffee filter flowers are really nice and they are something else I am considering.
What do you mean?

@LibertyBelle: <—- I think I get what she means. Are you just using this idea for one area such as the centerpieces or bouquets? Maybe you can add small ones to the cake or cake table, photo frames. Are you making anything else crafty that matches this vibe? It may look random if you don’t and that could be what she means. If not, libertybelle correct me, 🙂

I think this is cute in small doses. Like not in a full on bouquet but if you have little flowers surrounding your cake or something like that then I think it’s really cute. What about silk flowers? I’m not very informed on the non-real flower options, but I know the silk looks beautiful in all the pictures I’ve seen!

I checked out the crochet flowers and I think they are so cute!!! You should definitely go for it, especially if you love to crochet (or know how)! I’m doing paper flowers for our wedding because I adore paper…. I think going the non-traditional route is fun and unexpected!

I think it’s pretty cute, but I’m also not a fan of real flowers.

@star_dust: Surprisingly, I think most fake flowers look tacky. Especially silk roses witr glue on them to look like dew
@Mrs. Bear Cheese Pie:

I think they’re cute 🙂
Do you crochet at all? I only ask because my Maid/Matron of Honor found a similar bouquet and wondered if I would want something like that. Since I’m not a crocheter, I didn’t think it would be ‘me.’ Now when my Maid/Matron of Honor gets married, I can totally see her rocking one since she crochets all the time. She’s constantly making baby clothes and blankets for our coworkers. So if you’re a crafter, I’d say go for it. You could still rock it if you’re not but it may not seem as ‘you’ to others. And it may take you longer than expected if you’ve never crocheted before.
I make jewelry on the side so I wanted to try and include something that represented that. Right now I’m working on making beaded and fabric flowers.

@LD333: Ok, yes… I wanted to make sure as well because that is how I understood it too. Yes, if this is the way we go then there will be some gralands, cake accesories, and other decorations to go along with it. Not like really fancy dresses and crocheted flowers and that is all. Also, it is a pretty simple wedding, kind of small country wedding.

@LuckyClover: Very very crafty, crochet is my number one thing but I sew as well. Also, any other thing I can get my hands on I try at least once.
