Anyone else thinking about making their own bouquet? I was thinking about getting a few different bouquets, doing some arranging myself and getting some white ribbon to hold them together. Flowers left over can go to the bridesmaid’s bouquet.
I made all my own flowers with a bit of help from friends and bridesmaids. I loved how they looked, it was cheaper and I felt like they had my own personal touch. Will find a few pics for you. X
I'm doing my own! Went to flower markets to get all the stuff. I'm really happy with my practice run!
I just thought that it would be a lot cheaper making my own than spending hundreds just because they are “wedding” flowers.
This is something i thought about, heres the bouquet holders i found on ebay
I made my own. I had a peach and blue theme. I used foam roses and gyp, tied up with florist wire and tape and then added a satin ribbon.
I made mine and my bridesmaid the night before my wedding, bought the flowers about 3 days before that so the buds could open a bit, I’m so glad I did x
I made mine, or rather my bridesmaids did!
I done my own and so glad I did xx
I have made my own using fake flowers (I often get sneezy with real flowers- not what I want on our big day!) Same with the flowers for our table centrepieces - after the wedding I will use the flowers in our new home x
My mum did her own. They looked lovely and saved loads of money. Only down side she cut her finger while doing it. Bad enough to need a trip to the hospital. On the day it was all fine and no one really noticed but it was worrying at one point. I’d wear gloves lol. X
Did anyone use an online whole seller for there flowers? Also looking at doing my own x
I’m doing mine, the bridesmaids and the buttonholes. I’ve used foam roses and artificial lavender and added some sparkly things and pearls
I made all my own, flowers from hobby craft, also made a few flowers from book pages. Cost £120 for my bouquet and 5 bridesmaids with enough left to make a smaller plain one to throw in the evening! Got so many compliments from them throughout the day! Much more fun too and so much cheaper!
Yah i am making mine... i dont like traditional bouquets...and to be honest i aint really that keen on flowers anyway lol... so gonna choose like atumumn plants ... ones with a bit of colour .make some that way.
You can get fantastic sets to make a bridal hand bouquet and smaller bridesmaids ones very cheaply, the just choose your flowers! All of mine are going to be home made (so is my cake as I can make it for under £40 for three tiers!) Then home for a BBQ we would rather spend the money on a honeymoon to remember than pay out a fortune on one day! Good luck ladies xx
sounds good if you can find the flowers a few people ive spoke to said they go to aldi x im having a paper bouquet x
