They are gorgeous and she only paid $200 for everything. I'm not sure how many bouquets she got but they did her bout's & corsages as well. I know you do have some flowers already but if you want to save yourself the work I'm sure you can always sell that on ebay or one of these wedding websites. Let me know if you are interested and I can get you pictures when they get back. Who knows they might even bring theirs back in good shape and you could get them half price. No pressure just thought I'd share.
Also you could put them together and then get those styrofoam blocks and stick the stems in there to hold them upright and then cover them in a plastic bag or garbage bag and store them in a dry spot in your house.
Did I tell you we just bought a house!!! Eeeek so much going on at the same time. Our dog is getting fixed we are planning a trip to Myrtle Beach. Too busy for the wedding stuff. bahahaha!
Talk soon xo
I WOULD love to see pictures for sure and possibly get her contact. I do want to DIY, but may possibly need a back up plan due to time. So totally interested
I think I am going to put each one in a vase in a rubbermaid tote. We don't have a lot of extra space right now.
CONGRATS on the house, that make me SO SO happy for you. Also kind of envy you as well lol. We are buying a house the summer or fall after we get married, I can't wait to get into our own house and have space. We currently live with my father and two brother... what a crazy household :/ !!!! Again SO happy for you! <3
Myrtle Beach sounds fun... this summer we will be taking a weeks vacation to Montreal to see family, can't wait. I am also kind of hoping to take a vacation to the ILA or Cuba in general with girlfriends to just chill out. Don't know how that would go over with my love as he thinks he needs to be there to keep me in line lol and not drink too much. ahahaha. We shall see

kay I was thinking along those lines, a vase and then wrap them in plastic, or maybe one of those dust bags you get when you buy a new bag... that would probably work really well!
Good call on the vase idea, I think that's what I decided on! Dust bags for a new bag... well I have quite a few of those, lol! .... yes I have a purse problem
