Got the bouquet done :-)

I guess the few years I worked at a florist has paid off! I remember many long nights wiring pics and roses for weddings the next day. Although it has been several (wont say how many :-) years since I worked on a wedding, all of the skills came back! My hands worked like they never took a break. Believe it or not, it took  time to learn how to wrap wires while pulling and wrapping  florist tape at the same time, but I still have it down :-)

These flowers are for my "adopted" daughter's wedding. She did not want to do fresh flowers for a couple of reasons, one was the expense, and another was she wanted something she could save. The wedding is going to be small, only one brides maid, so I only have to make 3 bouquets.

This is the bridal bouquet

This is the bouquet she will throw to the single ladies :-)
(I kept this one small)

These are the boutonnieres

She is getting married at this adorable little chapel! Now that I have this portion of the flowers done it is time to start thinking about decorating the chapel!! We are doing a rustic/country theme... my mind is running with ideas!!
