Dressing up the Bouquets…

bridal bouquets, Wedding

If I haven’t mentioned it before there is a Big Lots a couple of blocks away from our house and every so often I stop in to see if they have anything I can use for the wedding. The other day I walked in to find the Martha Stewart Celebrate collection there. Wow. I was completely floored to find so many wedding things there. I ended up buying 6 Dove Bouquet wrappers one for each of my bridesmaids and one for me.

For $2 a piece this is what I got:

The only problem is that it didn’t really match my wedding colors so I had to jazz it up a tad. I hot glued the orange and aqua ribbon to it in the back and I don’t plan on using the silver rings but pearl bobby pins instead.

Once I do a trial one I will post some pictures but what do you think of my find?

Flowers…flowers…all around

I love flowers and I can’t wait to start working on them. Since I’m DIYing all my flowers I decided to embark on an inspirational search for my bridal bouquet.


All these flowers are real but I have recently considered whether I should go with silk flowers because some of them are just as amazing without the hassle of real ones.

Are you using real flowers or fake?
