    I absolutely love orchids and wanted an orchid bouquet, but I was shocked at how much they cost!

     

    Also, since we are having an AHR when we get back, I decided to make my own real-touch bouquets - they were way cheaper, and I can use them more than once, and even keep forever if I want!

     

    My colours are purple and green - so I wanted to incorporate that. The bridesmaids will be wearing purple, so I made their bouquets mostly green and the groomsmen get purple bouts to go with their beige jackets.

     

    I also threw together a couple of corsages for our mothers and grandmother coming to the wedding.

     

    The flowers (with the exception of the corsages) are from Afloral.com, the blue starfish I got from a shop online (can't remember where) and the supplies and everything else I got from Michaels.

     

    I'm really happy with how everything turned out! And I saved over $500!

      Char fabulous job. You've definitely sold me on adding stephanotis to my bouquet, and maybe the boutonnieres too.

          Those are beautiful.  You did an awesome job.  It's refreshing knowing we can make these things ourselves and save so much money!  I didn't think about buying the flowers online - now I wish I had!

                  Those look so great!  Really makes me want to give it a shot!  Would you mind telling us what the supplies cost you?  Also, how are you going to transport them?  I would worry about them getting all squished!
