    Sorry for being so picky but I just loved the ways yours looked. Not too many that they were overwhelming... but enough that they were noticable.
    Yep, they were 9 feet long. And i put 10 flowers on each strand. I could have made them shorter but i wanted to make sure there was enough fishing line to tie them secure to the gazebo. If you don't want them blowing all over the place you might want to ask them to tie them to the banister. And definitely ask someone to go check out the gazebo ahead of time incase they don't do it correctly.

    Just fyi, i was in hobby lobby today and they had these flowers 1/2 off. They have pink (which is what i used) a dark purple and a really pale green.

      Thanks so much! Unfortunatley we don't have a hobby lobby in Northern Minnesota. Hmm.. I just looked at their site and there is one in Rochester... so maybe when my dress finally comes in and I get to go pick it up down there I can try to track down some flowers!

        Becky,

        You can probably find similar flowers to Michael's or AC Moore. I haven't looked at any of those places yet, but I would think they would have similar flowers

          Good point... we do have a Michaels near by. Do most flowers these craft places sell have that middle part pop out like she is talking about? I'm having difficulties visualizing what I am looking for.

            We don't have AC Moore here, but Micheals here didn't have the right kind of orchids but they did have other flowers where the center would pop out. If you can't find them let me know. I'm going to buy some and mail them to another BDW bride.

                Also check Garden Ridge if you have one where you are. They might have something like that.

                  I'm sure they do. I think a lot of the times they come in those attached bunches. Just go in and start looking around. You can play around with the flowers til you find them. Just pull on the stems and if they separate from the haed of the flower you are halfway there! Other than that you just need to make sure the center pops out and back in. I have seen them before. Usually they are the less expensive type of fake flowers (thank god because we need so many)!!

                    Thanks for the explanation! I will have to go take a look and see what I can find. And less expensive is deintely a good thing! : ) How many do you plan on making?

                      I think maybe 30? I have to make sure they hang them all. That way there are 10 for each side and 1 in the back. Sounds like they didn't hang all of the ones that she made :-( But I think that 30 is a good #. You're getting married before me so I'll have to wait and see what you say!! I think though that its so simple and beautiful, that its worth the time to make.
