Bouquets are made :)

Maya, on 9/December/2018 at 23:46 Posted in DIY
I had posted earlier about alibaba review for the flowers we ordered for the wedding. Today my bridesmaid and I maid all 4 bridal party bouquets, a toss boquet, and my bridal boquet. We also made an arrangement for the archway and a small boquet for her daughter. We cut some flowers for petals for the flower girl and we still had 6 to spare from the 100 that we ordered. I didn鈥檛 take pictures of all the bouquets, but the rest are similar to the toss boquet but a bit bigger. Her adorable kitten loves to play in the box and was interested in the roses 馃槉

    I bought all of the flowers for $180 off alibaba so each flower worked out to $1.80 each including tax and shipping. These would have cost me easily $8-10 dollars each at micheals. Also if I had got someone else to make the arrangements even with real flowers it would have been 550-700 dollars. My one maid of honour and I made these for under 200 dollars. I have shared previously the supplier I used, they do just have roses in many colours. Other suppliers offer other types of flowers, at first it may be hard to search for them but it鈥檚 tirally worth it. The flowers arrived in a box and did need to be aired out and shaped, but everyone thought the rose was real when they saw it. My mom actually was going to grab a vase when I brought a few to her house.

    Thanks the bouquets took a long time to make, but it was a lot cheaper than getting some else to make them.

    Wow, that's some amazing detail. I'm sure no one will know they're not real if you don't tell them lol.

    Yes, everything is coming along. Just have to look into dance lessons. Finish our favours and put together the centre pieces. Just a little shopping left this weekend and we should almost have everything done.

    It's getting there!! Starting to have minor panic attacks... but it'll be okay! Doesn't help I'm SUPER busy at work prepping for Boxing Day before I leave for Christmas next Saturday... Gonna put all my elves (family) to work over Christmas at my mom's house to make the favours, then everything else is small stuff. Centrepieces are done! (Or the pieces of them anyways, they need to be constructed on the day)

    Hope your stuffs all coming together too!

    Yep, I searched a few before I picked. Was really nervous about ordering without getting a sample, but it was worth it.
