No questions, just sharing my DIY journey with the amazing Sola flowers!

My bouquet, and the little boutonniere is actually a ribbon flower I made. (It is for our 1.5 year old son.) I still have my FH bout to make and decorate the arch, but I figure I will decorate that the day of. Smiley laugh Also, I want my FH input on how he wants his bout, and he is at work currently.

    The butterfly is my grandma's. She gave it to my mom and my mom gave it to me. Smiley smile it's my "something old" and "something blue".... even tho there is so much blue to choose from! Lol.

    Thank you! I'm so happy with how it turned out! I love the look of all the random flowers together. Smiley laugh and the hops look so nice cascading down under the flowers! My FH actually turned me on to hops for my bouquet!

    What do you mean? Lol.

    I decided to use Sola because its cheaper than real flowers..and I like the more rustic type look of them compared to silk flowers. I looked into premade sola bouquets but they were over $150 for something like what I made! I got 200 sola flowers, dye, ribbon, lace, and greenery (for ALL my floral decor) for around $180!

    I wanted royal blue flowers because I like the color, but also because it's my daughters fav color. So she would get a blue dress. (This is a surprise wedding. We are celebrating her bday right before the wedding, so her flower girl dress is her birthday dress.) Smiley tongue

    The white stuff that is also in the boutonniere..I have no clue what it is. I'll take a pic of the tag and post it.
    The other stuff in my bouquet is queen Anne's lace, hops, and eucalyptus. Smiley smile
