My most recent wedding project has been creating the bridesmaid bouquets. We went with fake flowers, because you can really find ones that look pretty real, they are about 100% cheaper than real flowers, and they won't wilt, so you can make them FAR in advance. And we are ALL about doing everything we can pre-day-of-wedding.
So without further adieu: Wribbon wrapped around stems:We still need to cut the bottoms of the flowers even--they were thick, and I busted my nice scissors trying to get them cut...I finally gave up. My dad's going to have to get out his table saw or something! :) (Maybe his pruners?)
