I handmade my bouquet for my own wedding on 10/10/10. I created the template petals with bristol board, painted coffee filters with diluted acrylic, cut out the petals, hand curled each petal, and arranged and attached the petals on floral wire with floral tape. The bouquet handle is a modified paper towel cardboard tube, covered in organza and tulle, wrapped tightly with a satin ribbon, the twists pinned into place with pearl pins. The bouquet, from experimentation to designing the template to making the roses to final touches, took many evenings in the course of several months!
Much thanks to my wedding photographer Randy Ahart of Photo Pink NYC!
