I was originally knitting flowers for the girls (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=280934.0) and crafting buttonholes for the boys (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=285983.0) in our wedding party.

However, a couple of months out from my April wedding I came across this thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=271441.0 and decided to make something similar.  I was pretty lucky that most of my experiments were successful, so I didn't waste much in the way of time or materials.  I'm afraid I didn't take pictures along the way or get a shot of all the flowers but here is my bouquet:

I had similar bouquets for eac of my two bridesmaids and a slightly smaller one to throw at the end of the night.  I made individual roses for my mum and my husband's ( Grin) mum.  For buttonholes I made small roses that were pinned through the fabric onto the suits.

Please feel free to comment or question.  I hope you like it!

So much to make, so little time!

Very pretty!

Don't you mean 'boutonniere'?

Thanks for the comments!

Lolacat - you can be very creative with these - I made flowers using satin ribbon and others using folded strips of satin but I also considered using lace or other types of fabric.  Then of course there's the myriad colour combinations you could choose!  I'd definitely recommend giving it a go.

Megnificent - oui, but I didn't want to get the spelling wrong!  Especially as the suits didn't have actual buttonholes anyway.  I guess I should just call them lapel decorations!

So much to make, so little time!
