DIY Flowers

I made my own wedding bouquet. I had a small wedding in Italy and the prices quoted for bouquets were SILLY expensive. So I figured I'd take some ribbon and pins along with me to Italy, get some fresh flowers the morning of the wedding and make my own. It was my first attempt EVER (I had planned on practicing beforehand, but life in the pre-wedding weeks proved to be too crazy) and I think the bouquet turned out just fine!

I wanted simple and small - this is what I came up with:

Wow, lovely DIY, and the flower looks really unique. A simple single-flower arrangement is not difficult to make, and the classic dome shape of this round bouquet complements most wedding gowns. Be sure to stick to hardier flowers like roses, which are easier to arrange and can endure a little manhandling. Thanks a lot...
