Wedding

Hi!

A little while ago, after seeing this and this, I decided that I wanted to make all of the bouquets for the wedding out of fabric. I finally went fabric shopping yesterday to pick out some pretty ivory and yellow fabrics because tomorrow I'm having a few helpers over to work on the bouquets. When I got home from fabric shopping I got kind of inspired and couldn't resist testing out a few flowers.


The photos don't really show a lot of detail but the ivory flowers look soooo prety! I am super excited about finishing the bouquets and although having people helping me usually stresses me out (I can be super picky), I am excited to have some extra hands for this project.

I also tried my hand at a boutonniere. I'm not sure if all the boys will need one or just Ivan because he might be the only one wearing a jacket. Either way I think it turned out pretty cute! I got inspired by this one then just kind of made it up as I went along. So what do you think...with or without the leaf?


If anyone is interested I could possibly put together a DIY to show you how I made the bouquets and the boutonniere.

Yeah! I'm so excited about working on these more tomorrow! Today we're going to spend as much time outside as possible! It is beautiful out!

  5. I would love to see a 'how to' on how to make these. They look stunning. I love the ivory ones for the bouquet so much.

    And I'd say with the leaf. So pretty.

  6. How creative! What a cute alternative to the traditional bouquets! I always thought the amount of flowers used at a wedding seemed like a waste. ♥

  10. They all look so pretty and won't fade over time like real flowers. Neat! For the boutonniere, what about making Ivans slightly different (including the leaf and maybe some other extra touches), to the others? MrB wore a flower spray to match my bouquet (calla lilies), while male guests wore a simple gardenia.

  11. Honestly Elycia, I'm in love with these. I've always loved the idea of fabric flower bouquets, and your boutonneires are absolutely perfect. Like I'm ecstatic for you, that's how perfect they are! haha. I would love you to make them for my wedding if I ever have one! (So consider this a pre-custom order haha) xo
    Oh and btw, I never commented on you being in Dunnville. It would have been so fun to go with you to Bohemian Fridays. I love it there (or was it Flyer's....) I love both so it's all good. Anyway, next time, don't forget me :)

  12. Girl--you so crafty! You're going to have such a beautiful wedding. I like the boutonniere with the leaf.

    Also, I was brainstorming with a friend about a upcoming craft show we are doing and she was talking about tissue paper poofs. I was like, "I have the perfect tutorial!" ;D
