DIY Silk Wedding Flowers
I got to make another checkmark on my long wedding preparation list: Flowers!
The quote I received from the florist was very reasonable. But it was still more than $400 for just wedding party flowers. I decided to go with silk flowers.
For $110 at Micheal’s I purchased flowers and supplies for:
- My bouquet; I will add my vintage brooches
- Four bridesmaid bouquets
- Two flower girl baskets
- Corsages for moms
- Boutonnieres for dads
- Boutonnieres for ~20 helpers. Girls will have a bow added
I waited until the blooms were on 30% off sale. I also used my 15% teacher discount.
The lovely ladies in the picture above are my future mother-in-law Julie, my sister Kelli, and my mom Jo. The four of us finished almost everything on Saturday. I only have to add some ribbons to corsages and complete my own bouquet before the checkmark can officially be made.
