Beth, I think if you email me a bouquet that you love, I can replicate it easy! And if we use artificial flower for the bouquets I won't have to worry about ruining or running out of flowers. Plus I will have more time to put them together. I think I can do it!!!!
So first, let me show you some flowery stuff I have arranged, real and silk so you can see that I can do it :)
K so thats all I got but I have done more :)
Anyways we need to decide what you want. So the bridal bouquet will have more purple or maybe all purple. So here are some examples:
Here are some mixed white/green/purple Bridesmaid options:
Basically I can find Hydrangeas (real) $3.50 a stem. They are probably the priciest of them all. I think for centerpieces you should do some gardeny type flowers (carnations, sweet peas, veronica, lilac if possible and then we could add in other nice flowers from a florist or Costco or some other bulk flower stores online I found.
My guess is that the bridal bouquet will cost $25 give or take (I'm shooting high), bridesmaids about the same. So total so far $125. Boutonnières can be done with real or artificial. Don't know if you want white, green or purple:
Here are the pics of the artificial flowers I found today at Michael's:
Let me know what you think. And email me pictures of your favorite bouquets then I can go buy enough flowers for just your bouquet to start and see if I can replicate it. Make sure I am capable of doing it!
