If anything, do the bouquets yourself. I promise that it is actually really simple, if you have any craft ability whatsoever. I watched a lot of tutorials online (some of which I will post) and spent some time practicing. And I spent a LOT of time surfing the web and researching to find exactly what I wanted my flowers to look like and which flowers would be best to use. We ordered flowers from wholesalers and then I worked my magic. Below are some photos of the bouquets and flower arrangements from my wedding. In future posts I will explain in more detail how I did this all!
|My bouquet which included white roses, purple roses, white alstroemeria (my new favorite flower), purple lisianthus, purple limonium, and lemon leaf. It was hand-tied and wrapped in a white fabric stem cover with some jewels.|

|All of our lovely bouquets- each bridesmaid's bouquet was unique and each girl got to pick her favorite as her own!|
|Close-up of a bridesmaid's bouquet- each included purple & white roses, purple & white alstroemeria, purple limonium, dark purple lisanthus, and lemon leaf.|
|I made 2 of these for the ceremony at the church. We found the urns at Michael's and used floral foam to create the sprays. Each included gladiolas, roses, alstroemeria, and limonium.|
|This arrangement I made for the altar, and it was the beginning of the aisle runner. I used a long block of floral foam and the same flowers as in the other arrangements, as well as a lot of greenery (some from my parent's backyard!)|
