Finished mine & my moh’s bouquets. Need opinions please. Also does anyone know what to do to help keep the flowers in the bouquet holder? I made mine from a paper towel roll but the flowers don’t say in it. (skinny stems)
This is the matron of honors bouquet
Here is my bouquet with holder

hey there! ive been in the floral business for over nine years 🙂 ive never seen/heard about the paper roll technique,but kuddos for being creative!! Im not really sure how you would be able to keep them attached, however they do sell bouquet holders that have styrofoam in them that you could use. also, if youre getting frustrated by trying to do it yourself, id love to help. message me or check out my facebook page. Good luck and congratulations!

I actually got the idea for the bouquet holder from another bee.

if you push styrofoam into the holder, then push the bouquet in, it will stay. Just make sure it is in tight, the styrofaom cannot move around in it.

cut the paper towel holder lengthwise on one side, then reroll it tighter around your stems. tape around the holder, then cover with ribbon. Everything should stay put.
I love your flower colors.

I think these are great! The only thing I would do differently, which I had the same problem with (I made my own too) I would make your bouquet bigger. You want it to really stand out… But these are great!

I will have to look into the styrofoam thing.
@ sasi: They are an ivory/cream color.
@ Achele: I am considering adding more flowers but have yet to make it back to Hobby Lobby to get more. lol I am a procratinator big time. lol I have also thought about adding in an extra layer of just the dark purple to help set it off & make it bigger.
