    I finally finished my bouquets today! I had originally hoped to have real touch bouquets made by Shavon or really from anywhere, but because my wedding date was moved up, I didn't have much time and didn't receive anything back from anyone, so I decided I had to go the DIY route. I was pretty nervous about how they would look but I really love them!

    I used afloral.com and ordered the fuchsia cymbidium orchids and fuchsia mini calla lilies. My bouquet is a mix of both the orchids and calla lilies. My two maid of honors bouquet are just the orchids. And then the boutonnieres will be the calla lilies.

    I'm really glad I decided to go with afloral. They shipped them really fast and they were packaged really nice, nothing was crushed at all. So if anyone else is stuck in my situation, I definitely recommend them!

    Here are some pics! My bouquet is on the right. The left one is the maid of honors. And the boutonniere in the middle.

    And my "something old", my great-grandmother's brooch. Pearl is also my birth stone, so it's perfect!
