Moms, if you guys are reading this, I'm going to hurt you. Grin Cheesy Kiss

I'm a horrible Craftster and didn't keep track of how many stems I made or the total cost.  I bought supplies over monthssss - some each week, so it wouldn't seem as painful on the pocketbook.  Bought the crystals on Ebay and the wire at Hobby Lobby.

All of the posies together!  My bouquet, my MOH's bouquet, 5 bouts & 2 corsages.


My bouquet... artificial roses, glass beads & crystals.




Photos of grammas & grampas who are no longer with us... Smiley  TOTALLY inspired by *MAR* here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178071.msg1845483#msg1845483!


A mom corsage. Smiley  (they both want/like pins)


Groom boutonniere!


Kategirl made us these AWEESOME hankies as a present!  They'll be given to my MOH, moms and dads as a surprise.  I put the corresponding photos from my bouquet onto each parent's hankie.  Their parents can be with them during the ceremony now. Smiley






Action shots!

I love how the crystals glisten in the sun.  I hope it's sunny on the big day!

I love the hankies, too! Cheesy

Wow, sweets!  Your wedding is going to be awesome!  It's too bad I got married 15 years ago (before I found craftster and so many great ideas)!  The more I see, the more I would have done differently.  Smiley

Thanks, Haylie!  I think that ribbon is "Firefly" as the color.

Fantastic! They all look amazing. I love what you did with the charms. Those hankies are wonderful. All your hard work really paid off.
