So I found my inspiration picture for my bouquet online from the knot.com. My girls are having red and pink bouquets and I wanted something a little different with ivory flowers in it. This picture was EXACTLY what I was looking for.
So I went to Southern Hospitality and bought flowers that match my girl’s bouquets but with pink and ivory and this is what I came up with! This is not the fully assembled bouquet but I was just playing around. I am too excited to not share. Also, the color is a little off because it is from my cell phone. The flowers that look a little purpleish are actually a dark pink. I am in LOVE!!!
After it is officially assembled, I will wrap ivory/champagne satin ribbon around it. A small wrap of brown damask ribbon and place my grandmother’s diamondy broach on it!
Total cost: About $30

Believe it or not, I bought three “pre-made” bouquets. Two with the pink and ivory and one with the red. (The same red I bought for the Bridesmaid’s bouquets). Then I just unhooked them, and rearranged them to style. 🙂 It took me like 5 minutes.

Beautiful, nice job!!
I’m consider DIY but am a little scared. How long would you say this bouquet kept looking fresh?

That is amazing. I am a little intimidated by flowers. What will I do if I screw it up!?!?!?! Have no flowers for my wedding day? AHHHHHHHHH! These are gorgeous!

Yea, I’d love to do my own too, but am afraid of messing up and having nothing. I may just spend a little now to practice before the big day. I know I’ll be super busy that day, so I will have to see about doing it the day before.

GORGEOUS!!! I love seeing DIY bouquets! I can’t wait for “flower blooming” so I can try my own this year as practice for my wedding next year!!!

FYI…I called a bunch of florists in NYC and very carefully (I think they thought I was crazy) asked them if they wanted some “free labor” for a couple of weekend mornings working on their assembly line for putting wedding centerpieces, bridal bouquets, etc together. It took a couple passes but I finally found one who agreed to the free labor for education concept. I am super excited to learn the pros tips for putting my floral arrangements together and learning how to work with the different types of flowers! Just a thought for you DIYers out there!
