My DIY Real Touch/Silk Flower Bouquets, Corsages, and Boutineers

Recommended Posts

I ordered all my flowers from afloral.com and was very pleased with the quality. You can tell they are fake, but not really unless you are right up next to them. I have never done anything with flowers or bouquets before, so honestly I am highly pleased with how these came out! For the price (probably cost me $100 all said and done) you can't beat it! The flowers through my resort were ridiculously high priced, so this was an alternative I decided to try out and I'm really glad I did.

 

I made:

3 bouquets

2 corsages

7 boutineers

 

 

700

 

The purple one in the center is mine and I am going to add a picture of 2 of my brothers that passed away in the charm that is hanging down.

Like I said, I am very pleased with these and would definitely suggest afloral.com to any bride that is unsure. It's a huge money saver. :)

Happy Planning, ladies!

These look awesome! I may have to check this website since I am thinking about doing a significant amount of floral items.

It's crazy how much resorts and WC want to charge for flowers...that I can't even take with me! At least with fake flowers, they are cheap, pre-made (so less stress about someone else creating something I don't like) and I can keep them indefinitely! elefant.gif

The real touch flowers look great but how are you going to get them to the resort without getting them crushed in your luggage?

Hi Jenny,

 

I wrapped my bouquet in tissue paper, and had it in my carry on bag (roller bag) with some other fragile stuff. The bouts & corsages we had were also wrapped in tissue in the same bag. They traveled really well!! I put them in our checked bag on the way back, and they were still not crushed at all. They are pretty resilient! You can see them in the photo below.

Hi Allie, 

Thanks for sharing a lovely picture from your wedding day! :)

 

Where did your purchase your flowers from? Afloral? 

How much were they,if you don't mind my asking?

Definitely! Mine weren't pre-made, though- just to clarify that. I bought the stems and then made the bouquets and everything. :)

Jenny- I plan to buy a smallish plastic container and put them in there and then put that in my luggage so they won't get crushed. I wil be carrying on my dress, of course, and we have an almost 2 year old little boy so we are trying to limit our carry on luggage. It's rough to travel with a toddler! Lol

By premade...I meant made ahead of time! Sorry about that! As in you create them before your trip through a labor of love, then transport them to your destination. love.gif In my opinion it's one less thing to have to worry about....I think I might be a little disappointed if the vision for my wedding bouquet was lost in translation! angry.gif
