    A friend of mine got married and her Maid/Matron of Honor and myself (bridesmaid) went and got some flowers  and put them together.  They looked great.  The wedding was in the woods so we threw in some wildflowers too.  This is the best photo I have o her bouquet:

    Either option is fine! I personally like the fabric bouquet idea because you can keep it – which is why I love my “alternative bouquet.” I got to keep it and look at it. πŸ™‚ haha.

    Don’t think you’re saving yourself headache by DIYing your bouquet though – false! Lol. If ease and cost are what you’re going for, fresh flowers may actually be a better option. Now if you like the fabric ones because they fit your vision and because you REALLY want to have them out of the way, those are positives.

    @MabelleBliss:  In that case, do whichever you think will make you happier in the long run. Which would you rather see in your pictures one day? πŸ™‚

    What a neat idea!  I think it’s a great idea.  Especially if you’re going to keep it, it could later be displayed in your home too.  If Fiance wasn’t set on real flowers I’d want to do something like that, though I’m sure for me it’d look more like grade school art project so it’s probably for the better :).

    I’m using dried flowers! I started out making fabric flower bouquets and after making about 150 flowers decided I didn’t like it. It was a lot of work and doesn’t give anywhere near the same feeling as a real bouquet does..but they totally work for some weddings!

    Dried flowers are kind of a happy medium in my opinion. They’re real, you can get them in any color combination you want, you can do them in advance yourself, and you can still keep them forever. πŸ™‚

    They aren’t done yet, but here’s one of my bouquets. The bottoms are just wrapped in floral tape right now, eventually it will be wrapped with ribbon.

    The more muted purple ones are lavender and the brighter purple ones are actually wild flowers that I picked alongside the road (as a group of construction workers watched me, lol) and dried myself in my garage (yay for free flowers!)
