I am trying to save as much money as possible whilst planning my wedding and I'm considering making my own bouquet and the same for my bridesmaids (1 for me and 6 bridesmaids). I was thinking about going and buying some artificial flowers and putting them together, and just wondered if anyone thought this was worth doing and if so has anyone got any tips? Thank you xx
Rhiannon McGhee - I have made mine myself with my MOH, my bouquet & 6 bridesmaids. I wish I could upload a pic...they are amazing (of course) and cost me about £40 to make. They are rose bouquets. If you have the time and willing to do it yourself...go for it! :)
Georgia Mai Garnett - I bought loads of bunches of flowers and foliage the week leading up to the wedding from supermarkets it. American to about £40 and the night before the wedding we all made our own bouquets and hand tied it with ribbon on my colour, they were amazing and whem we got to the meal venue my bridesmaids popped them in vases as centrepieces. PM me for pictures x
Liyah Trickey - I had artificial foam flowers for my bouquet and a silk buttonhole for my hubby, created by The Bridal Bouquet. I bought silk artificial flowers (think I used hobbycraft) and made the buttonholes for the bridal party. Saved a ton of money and was also fun to make them as I knew my wedding guests would have something I'd made by hand.
Nicole Gayler - Hey, I used Petals Polly Flowers for my artificial flowers, they were beautiful & it was only £110 for my bouquet, 3 bridesmaids & a table piece, I couldn't have made them myself for that price & they looked fab ? x
Katie Batty-Boo Morrow - Mine were artificial, looked stunning and being made in advance meant it was one less worry on the day as buttonholes were there in advance ?
Lea Thorne - I'm planning on making my own bouquet and buttonholes and corsages too...any hints, tips and advice will be gratefully received!!!
Hannah Kimberley - I brought mine from Wish cost me £5 including delivery and i just added bits to them. All 6 bouquets cost me about £40 x
