    Ok ladies, I'm down to 1 week before I leave for Cancun, and i still have so much to do!! I'm down to coming up with our hair flowers. I have probably waited to long to order something online... Did any of you made your own? I just don't know where to look other than a Michaels or Hobby lobby for silk flowers? Are they going to be easy to make and find? I'm pretty crafty, just have never bought silk flowers before. Do any of the silk flowers look better than others?
    Any information will help at this point!!!!

      I did make my own, I bought some really nice orchids (they feel real) and attached a bobby pin to them... they turned out really good IMO...

        I don't know about where you live, but we have some really great dollar stores that have lots of silk flowers. I have thought a few times about making a hair flower, but I think I am going with a head piece instead, since I already bought one.

          Julie, I got a headpiece too, but I am probably going to wear the flower in the back, like a lot of girls did...

            As Trisha mentioned I did make my own. HOWEVER, I must warn you. I made them, they seemed like they would hold up really well but once we got down there the 5 that I made all but 2 of them ended up coming apart. (most during my hair trial, because the women had no clue how to do hair, lol) Anyways my point is be sure to make plenty of extra's just in case if they break, or bring your hot glue gun with you there to fix ones that broke.

            But with all that said, I loved my hair flower I thought It was the perfect little touch and I would do it all over again (just be better prepared)
