Hi brides, i want to make my own wedding bouquets, has anyone else made their own? Do u have any pictures xx Thanks
I intend to make my own bouquet but don't intend to have a 'formal' bouquet. I am looking at something like a bunch of roses from M&S with some additional greenery. Bridesmaid will have the same but less.
You could even pop to your local florist and ask if you could have a little lesson in making them? Pay them for an hour or two so you can get to grips with what you need to do with hands on experience!
Ive spent hours watching videos on youtube & they make it look so easy, ......
Is it really as easy as it looks xxx
I want to do this too. I asked a florist how much a cascading bouquet would cost and they said they would start at £85. I think that is a harder style to create though.
The range have some nice bouqets thats my plan and to add some extra flowers etc xx
We had a company make ours and we altered them and added bits so it’s looks lovely now xx
I went to the flower market and practiced with some cheaper flowers. But I want a more wild looking bouquet anyway. Took me an hour but I made 3 bouquets. Make sure you have all the tools you need. A Stanley knife to get rid of thorns. Sharp scissors to cut the stems, flower tape, flower wire (and pliers to cut the wire) then your ribbon. There's loads of tutorials on Pinterest and YouTube. I'd practice if I was you. Mothers day is coming up so you'll have someone to give your trial bouquets to!! On the day before the wedding I'll be making my bouquets. I'll keep them on the balcony, with the stems in buckets of water. So they'll be fresh for the wedding. Hope this helps you. Good luck.
My maid of honour is making mine as a weddi g present. I wanted fake flowers so they last - she's doing mine, bridesmaids, flower girl and button holes - silk roses in our colour scheme
I will be doing all my flowers and did my brother's wedding too. Buy a couple of books, watch some Youtube tutorials, it's not that hard. Triangle Nursery online is a great place to buy wholesale flowers and sundries and they have tutorials on their Facebook page.
I don’t have any pics but my sister and best friend did mine and for my bouquet and 7 bridesmaids with 5 button holes it was under £50 with flowers from the supermarket, as long as someone has a good eye for what looks good together I’d definitely do your own
I made my own but a jewellery one.
I got a bouquet with oasis on from hobby craft and just played around with the positioning of the items until I was happy xx
Ours were made by myself and my mum (well mainly mum). She did an amazing job. Total cost for all was £50. Got all I needed from Amazon and high street stores when it's mothers day/Valentine's etc. Was able to add personal touches like brooches and steam train button for my grandad. It was so special doing them ourselves too.
I replied to a similar one earlier. I'm going to make mine out of books and other paper
Ive got some stuff going to give it ago n see how they turn out x
I made ours myself, I made them with fake flowers. I couldn't justify spending £500 on flowers and I wanted to keep them. I made mine, the bridesmaids and the buttonholes. Altogether they cost around £15.
I've made all mine for my wedding next year. I got most from eBay, and some from hobby craft. I've done a flower girl basket, 3 adult bridesmaid bouquets and mine and I've done around 9 buttonholes, I've just got 3 younger girls bridesmaid flowers to do. It's cost me around £40 so far and I'm really happy with them, and they can be kept forever :)
I made my own from white foam roses (was a arch garland I got second hand and dismantled) with blue diamante pins for the bridesmaids, my bouquet was a base of the same roses then I spent a year charity shop hunting brooches and clip on earrings etc put them on wire stems and put it all together as in picture, I also made all the button holes with same flowers and my cake had the left over flowers and pieces of jewellery on it.
My friend did hers for her wedding with flowers from the supermarket. This was my bridesmaid bunch. I also helped another friend make her paper ones which were gorgeous. I wold consider doing mine myself too but getting married away from home so not sure I’d have the time or space.
Thats mine and i made my bms as well. Hobby craft flowers. I also did the button holes
Im making mine from paper!
We made all of our own bouquets. We used flowers cut from both mum's gardens (My mum had got married at short notice.due to.illness the year before so a bouquet was gathered from the garden).
We then plumped them out with a couple of bunches of roses and baby's breath (£2 ! Bunch from supermarket).
The flower girls had little posies rather than bunches.
I really enjoyed putting them together the night before and stored them in buckets in a cool place.
We also saved money by having each bridesmaid/mine place their flowers in vases around the reception. That way we only had to make a few extra bunches for the tables and their flowers had water all day so lasted better.
You will just have to bear in mind what's in season
Yes I have but with fake flowers, pom poms and jewellery
I watched a few YouTube videos and found a step by step guide on Google. Bought my flowers from Amazon and the floral tape, ribbon and lace from eBay. Made my bouquet and 2 bridesmaid bouquets under £30. They are simple and pretty, so depends on what you're looking for.
I ordered all of my artificial flowers from a wholesaler and have done all of the bouquets and centre pieces. A couple of test runs and tutorials and it went well x
I've crocheted my own bouquet :)
made my daughters of artificial flowers to buy £165 made for £65
I'm making mine... I have just started on my cascading bouquet I will add a pic when I can .... I watched a load of YouTube videos beforehand and bought all the equipment and silk flowers . Best of luck! X
My mum and sister in law made mine. They did a few trial runs, watched some tutorials online. Saved me loads of money and they looked beautiful. We ordered the sunflowers and got yellow and red roses from the supermarkets. :)
These were mine...I bought the flowers from hobbycraft and the other bits like wire and tape off eBay and just kept readjusting them til I was happy with them. I made matching bridesmaid posies and the buttonholes too...they had lots of compliments on the day
Me and my mother are making ally flowers and stuff. But mine will be a bit odd as using pine cones, frons of corn and hessian flowers. It fits with my theme and doesnt wilt so can be made well ahead of time xx
My wedding was yesterday. I made my flowers from paper!!
Made my own brooch bouquet, cost a lot less doing it myself but it does take a lot of time to do!
I Made mine not real flowers obviously these are paper, this is a bridesmaid one, my bridal bouquet was a teardrop with cascading lace. X
I'm growing my own flowers and making the bouquets and button holes these are some practice ones I made.
