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.
