Can anyone help me find a website with how to instructions for making bouquets? We got a quote for my friends weddings and the BM bouquets are super expensive. I have made them before, for my sister's wedding and everyone loved them, but I need new idea's for this wedding, so if anyone has any sites or tips, they would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure how elaborate you want to go but I made both my bouquets in about an hour. They look gorgeous, yet are very simple. I gathered the silk flowers together, cut the bottoms off so they were even, taped them together and then wrapped them with ribbon that matches my dress. I am going to sew on starfish charms as well. I wasn't about to pay $60.00 for each of them in Mexico, so I did a quick DIY and they turned out lovely :) There are also shell bouquets that look kind of cool too!

Have you checked Martha Stewart?


These two have pictures:


Basic Bouquet Making Instructions - How to make a bouquet

I made mine with silk flowers. The key is to wire the stems to give them extra stability. For our BMs we did plain bouquets. For mine we used the foam holder to make it more rounded.


If you do use the foam, be sure to get the oasis and soak it overnight before adding the flowers.

Its not a DW, its a wedding here, so we are going to use real flowers. I did check Martha Stewart, but I am having a hard time finding anything. Thanks for your idea's ladies, I am going to read those links now and hope I can find something that helps me.

She said she did check Zhers and they were just as expensive because I already told her to ask them. I have no idea why they are so much, but she was quoted $100 each BM bouquet. I have to ask her what she is asking for exactly because it does seem really high.

    • Hi everyone! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
