Hi! I'm working on my wedding that's taking place 03.12.11 and I'm making a crapton of stuff. (Here's some of my other projects: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=348478.msg4061869#msg4061869)

The thing I've been most excited about is this bouquet! I'm actually more excited about this than my wedding dress lol. The only thing that isn't finished about it is it's not wrapped in any fabric. Once my dress is altered, I'm planning on wrapping the scraps around the stem. Right now, its covered in black duct tape, which isn't very festive. here's some pictures!

With lovely duct tape covering up several pounds of floral wire.


This is the side i'm going to have in front!



All in all, this bouquet weighs 3.2 lbs, which is actually lighter than I thought it would be! thanks for looking!

Oh don't worry! The girl who helped put all this together is also my photographer, so there will be a ton of pictures! I can't wait!

I don't know if they count as heirlooms, but my grandmother gave me some of the pins like the small clocks and the pearl wreath and the copper circle. Also, Jared's mama donated some of her mother's pins as well as her mother-in-law's pins who recently passed. Plus, some of her own. It's really been amazing all the people who have given me things for this. I love how everyone could be a part of this!

This is one of the most innovative bouquets I have ever seen!  It is stunning and unique! wow--Are you going to make a mini one to throw to the single ladies?  You definitely don't want to throw that one! Cheesy

This does rock!
