DIY bouquet???

Recommended Posts

I was JUST going to start a thread about this! I googled some info on making your own bouquet (they were all with real flowers but I doubt it would be any different) and it looks pretty easy. I still haven't purchased my real touch flowers though and I'm not sure which vendor to use or how many flowers I need.

I'm really only doing it because they don't really get anemones in Mexico (well, there's a slim chance but I'd need a backup flower just in case), and I really want these for my bouquets. So I'm just gonna make my own! The bonus is that you will know exactly what they're going to look like so that takes some stress out. But trying to get them to Mexico without ruining them might be a challenge.

There are so many books that I saw at Michael's that shows you how to make a bouquet, but I wanted to know if anyone here ever actually made one themselves. I am going to TRY...yes "TRY" to make my own. I grabbed some pictures that I liked of some bouquets..so we'll see...I saw a lot of real touch flowers at Michaels and you can also get them everywhere...on ebay, through some online websites..just google them and they're pretty cheap! As for bringing it along with you to the DW, I would suggest shipping it also in a box with the bubble wrap or the styrofoam "S" they look like! =)

I have not seen any real touch flowers at Michael's. They only have silk and some latex/plastic types. Real touch flowers are not that cheap. They can cost as much as real flowers or more. Roses go for about $5 a stem. Orchids are at least $10. Peonies (which I am using) at $5 wholesale, not sure about retail. Callas (the medium florimatique) are about $7.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
