So as ya'll know, I decided at the beginning of my wedding planning to not use fresh flowers. I ultimately decided to go with tissue paper carnations in whites and yellows.
I've never been a huge fan of carnations, but in a big bunch they're gorgeous. I used Folding Tree's tutorial for tissue paper carnations. So without further ado, here are my bouquets:
There are three for my ladies that are yellow and white and then my bouquet is white with yellow edges.
The best part is that these 4 bouquets only cost about $20 to make. It would have been hundreds if they were fresh. I also plan on making boutonnieres for the men and corsages for the moms using the same type of flowers.
What do you think? Have you considered using alternatives for fresh flowers?
