I hope it doesn’t make me look cheap, but after hearing that the corsages are $20 each, and boutonnieres are $10, I figured I’d make my own. I read some good online tutorials and it seems so easy!
Got supplies today, and if roses are about $20 a dozen at the local grocery, I can whip out 2 corsages for two moms, and 5 boutonnieres for $25 tops!

I am definitely considering it. You can get the wrist bands at michaels…..they’re $6 each, but use the 40% off coupon!

My Maid/Matron of Honor was made to be a wedding guru and she is making all my flowers……bouquets too. I dont think I could make it without her!

My Maid/Matron of Honor made ours (I did my bouquet and centerpieces)- once you get the hang of it, they’re pretty easy. Do a test run if you have time.

My mom made our boutonneires! We ordered dried billy balls and skeleton leaves, and she put them together with wire and covered it with a bit of lace. They’re perfect and they were soooo cheap!

I made fabric flowers for the mom’s/grandma – unfortunately never got a good photo of these, which makes me sad.
Here is one of the bouttonniers I made out of vintage fishing lures/fabric flowers for the guys.

I want to do mine but I’m nervous… are you ladies planning to do bouts/corsages the morning of or earlier? I’ve read that they really need to be done the morning of, which makes me feel like things will be nutso. Day before would be much easier though.

Me and Maid/Matron of Honor did the bouquets for her wedding 2 yrs ago ourselves, for hers, 2 BMs, a Maid/Matron of Honor and a flower girl, it cost a total of $100 for bouquets, real flowers.
ETA: We did them the night before and put into the fridge to keep fresh, ordering them the store isn’t going to make the day of either, just pick up the flowers the day before and then make that evening and fridge them.
