Hi everyone, a question for those of you who have made your own bouquets and buttonholes, how did you make them and do you have any photos for inspiration please? Tia xx
There are lots of videos on line which I found invaluable.
Can I also ask where they got the flowers from
I made my own but with artificial flowers.
I bought the flowers I wanted from a website called Permabloom and then bought the ribbon and lace for the handle from eBay 😊 took about 4 hours to make 4 bridesmaid bouquets and my one 😊 not everyone's cup of tea but I'm over the moon with them 💕 xx
Flowers from tescos and I made the morning of wedding! Didn't want to spend a fortune on flowers and I think I spent £50 For 7 buttonholes and 4 bouquets.. Only mine had lillies and that was because they matched our colour scheme
I got my flowers from country baskets - wound the stems together with floral wire then covered with floral tape. Then attached hessian and lace using glue gun.
Not til 2020 but I've started Making my own out of old books or any scap paper and tinfoil... one sheet of newspaper and 2 sheets of A4 in the picture. I'm still practicing
Spent about £30 (could have got cheaper from a supermarket) on flowers, some florist view, bit of lace/ribbon & pearl flower pins. Took about 20 minutes to make x1 bridal bouquet, x1 bridesmaid bouquet & x3 button holes
My bouquet was teardrop I think it's called & I also wished to have peacock feathers in it to draw out the purple colour of the orchids ...
Hi. My mother in law made my bouquet and button holes. We purchased the flowers from Dunelm, she took them apart and arranged them to look really full and added some bits in. I bought the hessian and twine on ebay and she came up with this for me. I was over the moon, they were perfect. To make my bouquet and 4 button holes it cost no more than £25!
Silk and foam flowers from Dunelm mill did all bouquets and button holes for £40 over 2 days! Everyone commented on them and it was easier than I thought it would be!
Another option is preserved flowers. Expensive but half way between real and artificial. https://www.secondflor.com/en/
Hi, I used these bouquet holders from hobbycraft as the base, added my (fake) flowers and foliage...and toy tiger, and wrapped the handles :) I'm not much of a flower person so this made them more personal. Used excess material from my bridesmaids' dresses to make fake roses for their bouquets too :) Good luck! https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/oasis-foam-wedding-belle-bouquet-holder-7-cm/569653-1000
Wow ladies. Your pictures show how it can be done so nicely.
I’m making paper flowers. These ones are quite easy to do and would work well for button holes too. Not finished them yet and still have a lot to do for my own bouquet, these are the bridesmaids ones! I bought packs of postit notes to get the right size and shape and just used hem. Saved time on cutting to size!
These are super easy to make I learnt from you tube
Paper flowers from a Harry Potter book ️
ones I made for daughter
Look on YouTube on how to make them. I have looked at a few videos. There is one that is bouquets by Nicole that I liked. Getting the flowers from ebay.
