    Did you use wooden stems when you made smaller bunches?  I feel like the hydrangeas are difficult to use except in the bunch they come in.  Great idea to make smaller bunches then tape them together!

      Ndvidul,

      your flowers look great!!!!!  I haven't starting working on my flowers yet, but when I did my bridesmaids I used a twist tie to hold the flowers tight at the top the shaped them making round as possible.

      Then I tape the middle of the stems together since some of the stems were not the same lenght, my Mom found me some Styrofoams from her bag of arts & crafts tricks for me put the flower stems in so all the flowers would have them same fullness at the bottom ,then I just wrapped the styrofoam with ribbon.  I hope this helps... Happy DIYing

      I'm using wooden stakes and using floral tape to tape on the blooms at the top, so the problem arises with the stakes not being flexible.  Going to head to Michael's (they know me by my first name now, hahaha) to see about getting some small styrofoam to put at the top to space out the flowers to make the round shape bigger. 

       

      The good news is that I LOVE the colors, and that it's turning out exactly how I want there.  AND the smaller shape here is going to work well for the bridesmaids bouquets I'll make (which will just be the white and green flowers).  I'm going to put some pearls and swav. crystals inside some of the blooms and do a ribbon wrap at the bottom. 

       

      Wish me luck!!  Hope I can solve this today ---- been wanting to check this off my list for ages!!!

        This site has so far been helpful....thanks to all you ladies

        My wedding is April 19th and I decided to go with the Amethyst Rose package...LOVE purple.  You all are so good at this.....Im a little behind and not a DIY kind of girl (i wish I was). So, Im thinking getting the resort to supply all the decor may be my best bet.

          Well ladies,

           

          As DIYprojects for me are winding down (Finish our welcome book, Menus, Programs, Table Numbers & Escort Cards), I am beginning to list out and focus on what is needed for our welcome dinner, ceremony & reception along the lines of decor, vows, etc.  Most of these things will be items to be purchased (chair sashes, tabel linens) etc.  In creating this list, I noticed that I only had one thing missing that would complete my wedding day attire (besides the something borrowed), which was my jewels.  So, I have begun to work with the lovely Chelsea to create earrings & a neckalce that will undoubtedly compliment my dress, sash and birdcage veil.  I'm so excited!!!! 

           

          As an FYI if you find me MIA over the next few days/weeks is because I have Jury Duty on the 2nd (we are not allowed to take cell phones or any device with a camera (oh what a boring day this will be), Site Visit to what will be our new clinic, along with the relocation of our what will be the old clinic...  Training on the 14th & 15th.  And this is only the beginning...  I knew these things were coming (minus the Jury Duty) early this year, hence the need to get many projects done done done....

           

          I hope that you DIY projects are going well!

            Well up at 6am out the house by 6:30a to get my car inspected, brakes & oil (winter prep)... I was able to work on our wedding ceremony script & vows. So with two hours to wait, I was able to get a lot done.  So after running around and back in the house by 11:30a I decided to take advantage of the rain/snow & friends (not many like to bundle up etc...) We are shoe queens so the rain or snow don't mix well with our collection (I digress).  Anyway, I finished all 55 Guest DND signs (minus 5...those that have extra large holes)   Tools:  Fiskars Circle Cutter, Memories scissors (part of my kit), tweezers, bling & Martha Stewart's ballpoint-tip glue pin.

             




            Let me tell you.. I left out after talking to Summer12. I went to buy a bottle of Hennessey (I love my brown alcohol)... came back and while having a drink I cut/seperated all 20 pages (60 DND sings).  Then it was time to meet FI for dinner.  Upon my return I showed him the welcome book cover along with page 1.. he was please... then he said "wow these are coming out really nice" in reference to the DND signs.  So since he wanted to play 1 game on the PS3, I trimmed all of the DND signs.  Tomorrow I will cut all of the holes out..  Oh BTW I'm trimming with a drink LOL 

            So, I'm feeling a bit frustrated since I've had multiple trials to make my own bridal bouquet, and I'm still having some challenges.  I'm going for a round bouquet with these flowers and colors, but it ends up being SOO small!!  I want the size to be about 3 times as big.

                Officially signed a room block contract with a TA 10 days ago, and last night sent out the first "save the date" emails (to collect snail mail addresses). So I guess the ball is officially rolling! June 24, 2012 here we come!
