Did It Herself

You can, and should, make your own bouquets & boutonnières for your wedding. There, I said it. I wish I would have done it and you shouldn't have the same regret. So listen up my little crafty readers and see how one bride {Brittni from papernstitch} did it herself.

A few simple raw {and beautiful!} materials were ordered from Whole Foods, assembled {above} and turned into a stunning bouquet {below}.
Do it the night before or the morning of and enlist your friends & bridesmaids to help. To be honest, I don't think that you could possibly "mess it up." Its not rocket science, but it probably helps to have a dry test run a month or so before the wedding!
You can see the complete step-by-step instructions/tutorial here and her wedding post here at 100 layer cake. Get to it!

Oh I am SOOO happy to see this! I am really going to try to do as much as possible on my own and you just gave me the courage to add bouquets to my list. Thanks!
