I recently got married to my most bestest friend...and just for the record, being married is like the most awesome thing EVER. I knew from the get-go I wanted a not real flower bouquet, because I wanted to save it and it not be all dead and wilt-y. I briefly considered a brooch bouquet, but realized I had about 2 brooches to my name, and ended up settling on thread spools and buttons. I loved it so much. I feel like it was really 'me' Smiley

It was also important to me because my grandmother was the one who got me started on wanting to sew. She sewed all her life, and made half my clothes growing up. Unfortunately she passed away last year, but to honor her memory I used several old thread spools out of her sewing cabinet, as well as new ones Smiley







I also made the boutineers...





I loved how they came out...because I like bright colors...and...yellow...and happy!

What a cool idea! And so bright and cheerful and colorful!  I really like the filler 'flower' fabric bits too, how did you do those?  Congratulations on your wedding, and those are very sweet pictures Smiley  I'm sure your bouquet will be a happy reminder for a VERY long time!
