    So I was going to use a florist here to have some real touch bouquets and boutennieres made, but then she took the $20 for the sample bouquet and never sent it, nor did she ever reply to any of my emails. So I took some inspiration from everyone on the forum who is or has made their own bouquets and the such and made these!

    Let me say they were far easier than I thought....

    This is FI's with the rose. I was so relieved that he liked it!

    These are the Bestman and Groomsman ones.

    These next ones...the ones with shells are for FFIL and my Step-Father - the ones without are for my brother and FI's BIL.

    These ones I have to send a shout out to fellow Alberta Bride SusieQ76. She found the orchids at Michael's and posted a step by step which helped me with all of these! The only thing different was anything I worked with that was plastic I heated up the wire with a candle and melted it onto the stem, the wrapped it with floral tape. I am not sure how to add the link, but the thread is called DIY "Canadian Boutenniere". Thanks SusieQ76!!!
