    Hi,

    Can anyone help me find a link on how to make floating flowers from the ceremony arch? I can't seem to find it, I thought there was one.

    I would really appreciate it!

    TIA!

      I love this idea actually! you might want to search MonicaBrandon in the Dreams Tulum thread-she did it by using fishing line

          I think Courtney aka Agape Gems made hers for her wedding at ROR.

          I thought about doing it but ran out of time.

          You use fishing line and silk blossoms. I think you just pop the centers out, thread the flower onto the line, then put the center back in with some hot glue.

            Thank you girls! You've all been really helpful. Hope my WC won't object me making it vs. having the florist do it.

              I don't know if anyone has suggested this, but for packing purposes, I would wind each strand around a toilet paper or paper towel tube so they don't get all jumbled together.

                  Hi! I am also planning on doing a hanging flower curtain for my huppah. I bought faux white lillies (they didn't have any orchids...but I like the look of the lillies anyway) by the stem from Walmart, and also transparent fishing line and fishing line weights. I haven't made the hanging curtain yet...but when I do...I will cut/pop off each individual lilly from the stem. Take the finishing line and wire it through the middle of each flower (the middle part pops off and you can just stick it right back in). I'm making mine about 8 feet tall...and each line will be about 1 ft apart from the next. I think I'm going to space the actual flowers about 6 inches to a foot apart from the one above/below it. Anyway...we got fishing line weights to add to the bottom (once they are completed) so that it rests in the sand and they won't blow all over the place in the wind. To transport them, we are getting pieces of cardboard, and wrapping each line around it.

                  Hope that helps!

                    What color are the fishing line weights you got?

                    We made ours this week, to save time you can actually thread the fishing line with a needle and we were able to get up through the middle. They came out great.
