Little update with some pictures! Yay!
Hey ladies! Just wanted to post an update before the weekend. I finally got all of my flowers in yesterday from Stemple Shop and i'm really happy with them. I was expecting my bridesmaids bouquets to be a tad bit bigger, but it's ok because I was planning to add the dusty miller in anyway.
I also got 4 aisle runner bouquets that are a bit smaller than my bridesmaid bouquets, just to hang on some of the aisle chairs.
Overall i'm extremely happy with my purchase ($200 canadian -Brides bouquet, three bridesmaid bouquets, one wrist corsage, five boutonnieres and four aisle runner bouquets)
When I received a quote from Maya floral back in January I nearly fell over when they told me a bouquet of peonies would cost me around $350 USD - ONE bouquet!!!
Peonies have been my favourite flower ever since I read Diary of Anne Frank as a child. I've always wanted them as my wedding flower so I had to go the real touch route in order to have what I wanted.
I added in my own additional greens to bulk up the bouquets and then I re-wrapped them in the jute ribbon. The leaves I used are Dusty Miller leaves. They had them on sale for 60% off at Michaels - so naturally I went over the top and bought 4 bunches of it. I'm also adding it in with my real white roses in my centrepieces.

I also was able to finally make a box for the rings now that we now our ring bearers are for sure coming. We have still yet to ask them (but we told their parents) and I still have to buy their bow-ties and suspenders which I already found on Etsy. I should get on that soon!
The box cost me a total of $4 to make. Everything made from dollarama products.
