This was what I took down the aisle (no I did not throw that bouquet, I would've killed someone, lol). LOT of work . . . I also did 2 flower girl ones, 1 jr. Bridesmaid, and matron of honour . . . using swarovski beads, which I did not, retail for 600$ for 300 stems, which is how many is just in mine! Mine looked just as nice as swarovski, I think, lol. SO, ANYWAY, here they are:

In progress:

Finished, but not where I wanted all the beads to be:

close up in action:

my bm holding them during ceremony:

and a nice pic of me holding mine:

all the ones on the ney were wrapped with ribbon all the way up . . . i thought, why cover up the pretty wire??? i wrapped them at certain points to hold them together with wire and beads

Thanks everyone! They actually weren't as heavy as I thought they would be . . . probably just as heavy as those big cascade bouquets. And of course, I never even noticed the weight on wedding day!
I forgot to say, that though they retail that much, mine prob cost around $40.
