I'm leaving for my wedding at Secrets Wild Orchid in MoBay in 2 days and have finally finished my bouquet, my FH's boutonniere and my grandmothers corsage. I would have loved to have real flowers but I wanted peonies in different shades of coral for my bouquet and as many of you know the prices are crazy expensive (quotes I received were in the $600 range just for my bouquet!) to me that is just too expensive for flowers I can't bring home through customs to have as a keepsake so I ended up making my own using a mx of real touch and silks.  I did have some dusty miller in my bouquet to match the boutonniere and corsage but ended up taking it out at the last minute as the bouquet was starting to look too busy. I purchased the flowers from Michaels and various sellers on Etsy. If anyone is interested in specific flowers from my bouquet send me a message and I'll tell you where I bought them. All though my bouquet didn't turn out how I originally envisioned overall I'm pleased with the final result but worried that they might look fake in the pictures. Would love to get some feedback from you ladies. Do they look too fake? Is there anything you would do differently?

I think they're gorgeous!!! Love the coral colour! Definitely something you'll be able to keep afterwards!! You did a beautiful job!! Oh and just as an FYI and for any other Canadian brides, you CAN bring back your bouquet. I've done it twice. Customs says it's because they're cut and wrapped flowers, not plants. When we came back from Mexico in October the customs officer told us they get asked all the time and in fact there was someone ahead of us in line for the exact same thing.

I think they are gorgeous and you did a fantastic job. Doesn't look fake at all.

Congrats on your upcoming wedding :)

 

Good info Ann. I may have considered bringing some of mine home to bottle!

Thanks for the feedback ladies! One of the pitfalls to being a bride is in the 11th hour you start to second guess all your decisions :rolleyes:

 

Great info on bring home bouquets to Canada Ann! I was always under the impression from CBSA that you couldn't bring home anything that was living. I probably still would have made my own bouquet anyways just due to the price Tia Flora wanted to charge but still great info for all the other Canadian brides on here.

@@2ndTimeMrs I think they look beautiful!  You did a really great job!  I am all about using the fake flowers - they look just as real and save tons of money.  Well done!

 

OMG I joined this party way too late - Happy Wedding Day!!!

You can sell such beautiful natural flowers or artificial flowers or deal with the event management or wedding planner company. 

Generally they need such flowers alot for decoration for brides etc.
