After deciding on brooch bouquets, I decided not to have any real flowers, besides 2 vases of them for the ceremony. I set out to sew, glue and create handmade fabric and tissue paper flowers for the wedding. I rounded up a collection of different ways to make flowers, and bought various supplies on sale at Joann’s. We started experimenting with different styles, and then replicated the easiest and quickest ones the most. We mostly made purple flowers, to use them to fill turquoise vases around the venue, and also used them to create the toss bouquet. Here are some of my favorite tutorials:
