Flowers on a Budget

11 Apr

So, you probably got, from my centerpiece tutorial that real flowers will not be making an appearance at our wedding in 4 months. So I set out on yet another to Hobby Lobby to figure out how to make my own bouquets and boutonnieres. Here are the results:

A “W” charm for my future last name.
The boutonnieres:

These pictures really don’t do the boutonnieres justice. They are so cute in person! The blue is for Josh (to match my bouquet), and his best man and the Dad’s will wear the yellow. My Maid of Honor and our two adorable little flower girls will have yellow flowers as well.

So all of these flowers were put together with absolutely no prior experience, just some research on YouTube. Pretty good, eh? And the best part? They are done already and we still have four months to go! Just one more thing I won’t have to worry about in August!

I bought all of the flowers and supplies for my bouquet for just under $40.00 and used the left overs to whip up the boutonnieres. Definitely under budget!

    This is amazing! I wish I had done this when I got married! I spent $600 on flowers I didn't get to keep! Good for you!
