Bouquet Update!

I have officially finished my bouquets, which I previously shared here - these darn things took about 6 months, but I'm very glad I made them - yet another thing to make this day special and unique!  (For those making your own, you need 1 roll of ribbon for 3 handles of bouquets - I used 2 since they're different colors! And you'll need about 150 flowers, 2-3 boxes of boutonniere pins, and about a million glue sticks!)

I decided to make a few changes since my original post, though! First of all, I decided the handle was too long so I shortened all of them. I was a handy-lady using a saw inside the house, it was wonderful ;)  But I realized since all the bridesmaids (and myself) will be walking down the aisle arm-in-arm with a groomsman (or father), we only need one hand to hold the bouquet and the other version was much too long!! Also, I added a bit more fluff to mine - I wanted it to be a little different from the others so I included some flowers using this AMAZING tutorial in addition to the other, more tightly-rolled flowers.  I also added a little more color with the light blue fluffy flowers that go with the invitations a bit more! I'm really excited about how they all turned out and can't wait to see them all in use!!
