My wedding colors were shades of blue and ivory. I ordered 4 dozen ivory roses from our local grocery store (for my bouquet, MOH, and BM). I made lots of dark blue silk ribbon roses, and saw a bunch of light blue dyed daisies on the way out of the grocery store. I used some blue tulle around the bottom of the flowers and wrapped the stems with dark blue ribbon.
Here is my bouquet. I was a little stressed about putting the bouquets together myself, but it was a breeze!

I bought 4 dozen cream colored roses which I divided into 3 bouquets (mine, the largest I think took just over 2 dozen, my MOH which we made a little smaller, and then a smaller one for my Junior bridesmaid). I went into my local Safeway about 5 months before the wedding and she told me when to come back to order the flowers (I think it was 6 weeks ahead of the wedding) so she could make sure she ordered extras for me. The roses were only $15 a dozen! They also made 3 bouts and 3 wrist corsages with the same colored roses and they were very inexpensive as well (I wasn’t confident that I could handle doing those as well). I am not sure if they would have made the bouquets….I didn’t ask as I was confident that I could put them together myself (which it really is!).

what kind of floral accessories did you use for your bouquet? Did you use a foam holder or did you hand tie them? -thanks 🙂
