It’s nice! I like this concept for a cheaper bouquet.

What did you attach them to? Are they all glued together or is it attached to something in the center?

I would like to try them but I think the type of guests i’m having and my FMIL might look down upon them. I’m also using an origami flower with tags attached at the center for placement ‘cards’ at each place setting. That might too much of one thing.

Good luck with finishing it, I would like to see your finished bouquet. Are you creating smaller versions for the BM’s?

Thanks for the information. I realized after I wrote you how you would put it together by looking at the etsy sellers. I created flowers like that with stems but added a ‘bud’ in the middle. I have them loosely in a vase at work and I got a lot of compliments.

I definitely don’t need convincing that they can be still classy looking but it’ll be over kill with all of the origami flowers already on the reception tables. I even sort of regretted using them that way, as it’s a long process folding 325 petals and I cut the 6×6 squares from 12×12 scrapbook paper. I have a post on the ones I created.

I just wish I would’ve done the bouquet instead but too late. And I’m pretty sure my FMIL definitely wants to see real flowers.

DId you use different sizes of flowers? I found a seller on etsy who uses 3 different sizes on the bride’s boquet. Also, how are you going to do the guys bou’s? I am trying to figure that out as well. Thanks! Looks great btw! 🙂
