Here are the corsages and bouts I made for my August 2010 wedding! Our colors were teal and ivory.
I made "mini" and "supermini" coffee filter roses for the corsages. They're small versions of the ones I had in the bouquets. The wrist corsages had wrapped ribbon "bracelets" (is there a name for that part of a wrist corsage?) They were surprisingly easy to make!
My mom's: (and me making sure it's just right!
My other grandma's... hers is twisted - you can see how it ties at the bottom
My husband's grandma's:
Boutonnieres! I didn't want to use my pink-tinted coffee filter roses for the bouts, so instead I used beads that complimented/matched those I used for the bridesmaid necklaces. My original plan for attaching the bouts was to attach flat backed pins to the back, but that didn't work... I'll never know how they managed to attach them on the day!
The groomsman bouts:
The best man (my husband's dad) had a similar one with two leaves.
The grandpa bouts:
I think my dad's was similar, but with fewer beads. I can't find a good picture of it.
I'm especially proud of the "wrist bout" I made for our groomswoman. It's almost a small version of the corsages, but with black ribbon and beads that matched the male bouts. I don't have many good pictures, but I was in love with it!
And just for fun, me and my hubby! As you can see, he didn't need a bout! (Although I was sewing that gold hatband two days before the wedding!
Thanks for looking!
If anyone is interested in knowing more about how I made the corsages/corsage band, I'd be happy to help!
