Wedding Project #2: Boutonnieres and Corsages

Here are the boutonnieres and corsages I made! As much as I am a fan of fresh flowers over artificial, I thought these had lots of advantages. They look really cool, for one; they're already done, which means one less thing to do the day of/before (I'm not hiring a florist; yeah saving money!), and they won't wilt. Plus, I had a lot of fun making them. The leaves were made of scrap fabric, on which I stitched stripes for the veins. The purple is from a skirt I made years ago, and the brown is from my maid of honor's dress (I had to take off quite a bit to hem it for her!) There are more of my denim rosettes in the boutonnieres, and some artificial flowers from garlands I didn't have any other use for.

For the mothers of the bride and groom.
For the grandmothers.

For my ever-so-handsome groom.

For the groomsmen.
All the boutonnieres...
...and all the corsages.


  1. These are absolutely lovely my dear, my hat off. I would have likely shot myself in the brains making those leaf veins!! Kudos!

    1. Thanks! Sorry for the late reply! Finally, I'm done with wedding stuff, so hopefully I'll be able to post again soon!
