    meBonidie2be: the florist shouldn't have trouble getting gems into your bouquet like the picture....they probably aren't glued on though.  They are probably similar to your starfish and you stick them into the rose.  I have seen people just use pins that have a fancy top on them or my friend's florist recently used fancy hair pins to get the same look (you never would guess it was a hair pin they looked great!)  I would talk to your florist, she might even have supplies like that already.

      meBonidie2be: you may want to buy them and bring them with you. I saw some online here:

      (I haven't price shopped, though, so they may be available for less elsewhere).

        Your bouquets are so gorgeous and colorful...I love the tropical look! My bouquet will be very similar to yours

        I want to stay as local and sort of connected to the atmosphere as I could, so I went tropical:

        And the bridesmaids carried smaller versions:

          oh wow. The starfish are intended to be hairpins. I don't know why i thought the jewels were glued, the pins make so much more sense. I'm glad i asked!!!! Thanks for the link. I think i might have to make some myself if i can't find them in a store. TIME CRUNCH!!!!

            I'm making the bouquets, and this is my bridal bouquet so far!  Still a work in progress.... the white "ribbon" is paper in this pic as I need to buy the actual white ribbon from Michael's tomorrow. 

             

            I was going to put swav. crystals in some of them, but I don't know if it will be "too much" and take away from the naturalness of the burlap.  Thoughts?

             

            I'm going to cut the bottom so that the stems only show about an inch.  Any ideas on how I can do this?  I'm using wooden stakes for stems.  Home depot wood cutter??? LOL! 

             

            Also, anyone done the ribbon criss cross for their own flowers and know how to do it?

             

            SO PUMPED!  I love how it looks so far!!!!

              I looooove the way crystals look in bouquets. You could always give it a try. Looks good so far!
